This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.

favorite things about this

  • literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
  • the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
  • all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
  • that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.

I just realized that it’ll be the 20’s again in less than six years. I propose we bring back swing music and jazz attire.

At midnight on January 1, 2020, I will go outside with a trombone and start playing some manner of jazz music. Or maybe a trumpet, I’ll decide when the time comes to actually do it.

So you’re tellin me I’m gotta pay $35+ for a ticket to watch humans make pictures on a field while hitting things with sticks, spinning flags, and making farting noises through a piece of metal for hours?

Sound good to me.
