Surviving the World

A Photocomic Education by Dante Shepherd

Lesson #1638 - Unusual Instruments

The creator of both the tromboon and pasta phone is also the creator of P.D.Q. Bach (the far-lesser known child of Johann Sebastian Bach) and all of the compositions that he has put together under the Bach name. I think I saw a P.D.Q. Bach concert once, a long time ago, that included someone playing the bicycle. Think the Buke and Gass for the classical set, if you will.

All of this leads to the announcement that the HtH song many of you contributed to back in May/June, by recording yourselves singing/playing instruments with/chanting one lyric to whatever tune you came up with, this song will be made available for you all to hear later today. I have heard it and it is, well, very strange. I was reminded of TMBG's "Fingertips", which in itself is a very weird song. Some of you can really sing and play, though! Anyway, here's the link to the song.
