The #1 trafficked post here at RW370 is Jump (In Pitch)!, the 2007 Van Halen performance with the magnificent accidental tuning that turned the banal 80s arena-rocker “Jump” into a greatly improved, groaning, atonal horrorshow.
In that spirit is today’s YT clip courtesy of pal Eugene Archibald. An unnamed student orchestra* (grade schoolers by the sound of it) magnificently renders Gustav Mahler’s “Also Sprach Zarathustra” (aka the theme to 2001: A Space Oddysey) into no less than my next cellphone ringtone.
UPDATE: Friend to RW370, archivist melophile (meloholic, really) Andy Lester has referenced his collection and successfully identified the performers as the Portsmouth Sinfonia. Apologies to the imaginary 6th graders I had in mind. For more Sinfonia, check out this clip.
