Yet another aCOSwt's bizarre thread !
You are right !
But please... try harder !

There might well be some surprises behind this, that I hope some of you will find interesting.
As far a I am concerned, well... 8O :? :? 8O :?:

Note that, the potential of surprise will be proportional to your knowledge / interest in music and in philosophy.
Whoever not interested in these matters, please, do not waste you time. (No disrespect meant)

I will further on suggest a youtube link. Be aware that :

1/ The performers are not best in class and the recording is of very bad quality.
Because of an horrible mistake occurring around 00.00.06 that would surely destroy your dear sound system as well as... your ears, I strongly advise you to mute sound until 00.00.08 !

2/ It is trivial but one needs time to realize how much this can impact our affects : One can listen something for the first time only... once ! :twisted:
And I would bet (in euros :lol: ) that the most knowledgeable in music of our OTW contributors will listen to this music for the first time.
Apart possibly from dmitchell because of a possible connection... :?

So... take care.

3/ I surely do not want you to blindly follow my suggestion, but be aware that the amount of surprise as well as the value of your contributions to this thread will be much higher if you can
- make so somebody else launches the link for you, (ask....well... I don't know... your... mother in law ?)
- refrain from watching the screen,
So that you do not discover the name of the composer before having made your opinion about the music before.

So... ready to go ?

Let's go :

Then please : Have your say hereafter !

I found it to be gauche and abrasive, but maybe that's because I've had too much coffee this morning.

This has got many meanings in French, could you please be more explicit, do you mean :
- unaesthetic ?
- clumsy ?
- awkward ?
- flat-footed ?

As for the abrasive qualifier you used, does this apply to the sound ? I mean, could this be the performers' / recording's own fault ?
