I wasn’t sure if I could get away with posting this video, since it’s technically a “part 1” and only the first two minutes are relevant — and also the film has been flipped, I’m guessing for copyright reasons. But then I thought, I’m posting this as the Halloween video in the hopes of planting a seed of discomfiture. Why not make it even more unsettling by pretending that the cellos are way the hell over there and the flutes takes their cues from Jimi Hendrix and the conductor is left-handed?
Ah, yes, the flutes. Tonight, in between trick-or-treaters, I want you to ponder the fact that while you’re on stage, safe among the other members of the symphony, there may be a serial killer watching you. And if you make a mistake, he may notice.
