Ein gar schröcklich Lied

Zusammen mit Komponist Dave Soldier haben Komar & Melamid's ihr Projekt "Most Wanted Painting" in der Musik weitergeführt und auf Basis einer Befragung von 500 Personen im Jahr 1996 die "Most Wanted" und "Most Unwanted" Songs komponiert.

Bezüglich des "Most Unwanted Songs" kam dabei Folgendes heraus, wobei sich der erste Satz wie eine Genrebeschreibung des klassischen Prog-Rock liest:

"The most unwanted music is over 25 minutes long, veers wildly between loud and quiet sections, between fast and slow tempos, and features timbres of extremely high and low pitch, with each dichotomy presented in abrupt transition. The most unwanted orchestra was determined to be large, and features the accordion and bagpipe (which tie at 13% as the most unwanted instrument), banjo, flute, tuba, harp, organ, synthesizer (the only instrument that appears in both the most wanted and most unwanted ensembles). An operatic soprano raps and sings atonal music, advertising jingles, political slogans, and "elevator" music, and a children's choir sings jingles and holiday songs. The most unwanted subjects for lyrics are cowboys and holidays, and the most unwanted listening circumstances are involuntary exposure to commericals and elevator music. Therefore, it can be shown that if there is no covariance—someone who dislikes bagpipes is as likely to hate elevator music as someone who despises the organ, for example—fewer than 200 individuals of the world's total population would enjoy this piece."


Den Song kann man hier downloaden.

Ich gehöre nicht zu den 200 Personen, denens gefällt, obwohl ichs bis Minute 14 recht unterhaltsam fand. In jedem Fall was für Hardcore Mars Volta Fans. ;)
