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 DIED

I SEARCHED THIS POST FOR AGES OH MY GOD

Dryocampa rubicunda - The Rosy Maple Moth Taken in Moultonborough, NH on Saturday, June 7th.
These moths are beautiful! And have so much variation. Tomorrow when the first set of photos post, I will include some more of these guys! They are so beautiful, and in my opinion are prettier than the Luna. These moths are in the family Saturnidae, so they are related to Luna’s.
The caterpillars are gregarious (feed together) on maple, box elder, and oak. They occasionally become prolific on maple and defoliate trees. The adults don’t feed as they have no functioning mouthparts.

no

the soften part is where the flute players begin to die off one by one

Those that make it to the end of the song go on to reproduce, ensuring the next generation of flute players is stronger. This is known as Survival of the Flutist.
