I would like to write a concerto for orchestra and walrus (baritone). Or maybe wombat.
How about the rest of you? What animal?
A concerto grosso for wombat, 12 madagascar cockroaches, capybara, musk ox, american short haired tom cat, a one quart bag containing 6 shucked oysters (in their liquor) and an electric toothbrush - with orchestra (of course).
Performance to be made ONLY on the second full moon in any month - all players clad in blue and barefooted. The conductor, wearing very heavy boots, will stand in a tub of hydrogen peroxide and, while conducting, will bark randomly throughout the work.
Lemon Jello must be served to all in attendance and snarfed on cue (2nd movement). Those declining the Jello must wave their hands, gloved with pink vinyl disposable gloves, in the air above their heads while chanting "crunchable estuaries in martian moons!" until the cut off. Those accepting the Jello but declining the snarfing will sit silently and gaze intently into their Jello attempting to will it into independent life. Any successful Jello vivification will immediately be paraded around the concert area by uniformed uninformed guards dressed as Batman. On completing one circuit of the area the "living" Jello will be sacrificed to the wombat.
This is my wish. This is my hope.
Peace be unto you.
In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.
Wow, Soup, that is amazing -- hallucinogenic, psychedelic... is that just you, or did you have some good illicit substances? Weeeeeeeeeeeeee! I want to attend THAT concert -- sounds even better than the Grateful Dead concert I attended in college (ie long time ago), most of which I don't remember. LOL!
