That’s played by two hands on one instrument?

I would say yes until you get to about 2:20, it sounds like someone else is "rolling" on the keys. Could be two people towards the end. It's not a very pleasing piece but it IS interesting!

 

I still can't get over it was based on a Cro-Magnon skinning chant!! How in the world would someone have access to a Cro-Magnon chant?:blink:

The Unplayable Score: Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz – John Stump

 

Quote

 

“Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz (from ‘A Tribute to Zdenko G. Fibich’)”, by American John Stump is a parody of a composition, meant to be impossible to play and including, in the score notations, absurd indications such as “release the penguins” and “Like a Dirigible” and “Gong duet.”.

And yet, there’s someone who actually played it. 

 

 

 

Quote

 

CSMTA presents "Faerie's Aire and Death Waltz". This "musical piece" (and I use the term lightly) has been considered unplayable, but here is a full-fledged attempt. Resplendant with directions such as "Release the Penguins", "Sell Mute", and "Watch for Slippage", the Aurora division of the Colorado State Music Teacher's Assoc. brings this almost-impossible performance to the stage, to the delight and chagrin of the 2009 State Music Conference attendees.

 

 

 

Start at the beginning if you want to listen to the narrative.
