The Unplayable Score: Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz – John Stump – SOCKS.

Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz (from ‘A Tribute to Zdenko G. Fibich’)”, by American John Stump is a parody of a composition, meant to be impossible to play and including, in the score notations, absurd indications such as “release the penguins” and “Like a Dirigible” and “Gong duet.”

Strung together
Like popcorn on a line
Of interminable permanence and self-assurance,
So weighty and yet
So thin that it snaps in the breeze. 94 more words

She’s not giving up easily this time.

What makes her think I’m worth it?
