Last night I went off to the meeting of the local 'grup de música'. The theme for this week was music from the 20th c. I was excited. They tend to listen to a lot of baroque music, which I find gets a little old, but more modern stuff I prefer.
Normally everyone has to bring a bit of music to play for the group - has to is a little strong, but that's the idea. I usually have some difficulty with this, partially as we don't have a TON of music here, but also because I am not the hugest music afficionado, and so find myself a little limited from time to time.
This time, however, I had an idea.
Last night we performed. I played the tuba, alongside another tuba player, we had a cello, a few violins, a piano, a harmonica, a couple of drummers and a bassoon.
We played, a slightly (very) abridged version of John Cage's 4' and 33".
We were most impressive, it was great fun, and nobody coughed!
