Hoot and Nani: Music for Halloween

    Rotyne Pumpkinskov – my favourite composer. A little off but that’s to be expected with untrained bacteria attempting this piece.
    I particularly like the portrayal of ‘Coming Down’ from the high that is Halloween.
    Hoot and Nani, were they to collaborate with the Kransky Sisters, could make for a treat that would change the course of experimental music forever.
    Interesting choice Joe, a little beyond my usual genre but hey! thats what keeps us all young.B

      Thanks for tuning in, B. Solid gold comment for the platinum piece! I had to look up the Kransky Sisters. Great name. I see they come from a town called Esk. Sounds like somebody drove by and clipped off half the town’s name. I watched their cover of “Stayin’ Alive”: featured a saw as one of the instruments. Wish I had thought of that (a saw) for “Hoot and Nani.” Would have helped answer a lot of questions.

        I think ‘Esk’ was named after ‘Esky’ the great Australian beer cooler. Or perhaps the local council didn’t quite know of ‘Esq’ as referenced gentlemen of bygone times.
        The Kransky Sisters are just so strange but my understanding is that each of them is quite well trained in music.B

      Oh, Good! A little too much candy in the bass. Strings a bit sticky. But the tempo and changes seem about right, and the three movements that build toward the final trick or treater. Here’s hoping for more treats than tricks!

      1. Trick-a-treaters are getting lazy dressing up round here. I scared a group yesterday standing in the porch, with a striking mask on, offering chocolate treats. Should’ve added you sound scape – would’ve been perfect :)

          Yes, it scared a few folks on this side of the water. Would have liked to have seen yr mask.
