Is that an organ in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
I was doing a bit of a music search for a work project recently and I came across a track using windpipes. Or should I say, overusing windpipes.
It’s kind of an odd instrument, don’t you think? To me it just sounds like hippies and whales and stinks of patchouli insense.
Speaking of instruments, the recorder is also really silly, isn’t it?
And if I may say so, kind of phallic.
Oh how Hildegaard loved her recorder so:
They should just make them like this and get it over with:
Some instruments can also be called organs. The irony.
Then there’s the triangle:
Which is possibly even more ridiculous than the recorder. Can it even be termed a proper instrument? Is there triangle music? Do you learn to play the triangle? Does it take years and years of dedicated eight hour a day practice, like the piano or the oboe? Perhaps, I wouldn’t know, but I’m guessing not.
It’s the instrument they always give to the more musically challenged six year olds in Kindergarden music appreciation class – ie: me.
