I am not sure if you understand the joke, don't think the joke is funny, or if you hate humor.

I'm not sure I fully get it. Where is this from?

"Based on a Cro-Magnon skinning chant"? Weird. Funny, but weird.

Can this piece actually be played?

I would say "far to common" time....

The "measure" after E is my favorite.

Don't forget to tilt the bongoes in the 6/1 passage!

If you want to see some real fun, check out Penderecki's original handwritten score for 'Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima'. At least this one uses notation as we know it!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCgT94A7WgI Here's an attempt at playing the piece in the original post.

There are times I'm glad I don't read music very well.

Well, if you walked into a Guitar Center on a Saturday when everyone is in there trying out all the instruments, you're probably hearing this piece anyway ;)

What I used to refer to as "a collection of mistuned instruments being thrown down the stairs"...

If they weren't mistuned before, they certainly were after!
