Yeah, I seem to be going though a bit of a Natalie Weiss phase, but this one had me in hysterical laughter when I listened to it. Also, we have to celebrate our freedom from grant applications – this is the music of a people who can finally get back into the lab and do some real science!
I especially love I dreamed a dream, and Castle on a Cloud, but honestly, the whole thing is brilliant. Though, judging by Andrew’s puzzled expression, one really does have to know the original musical for it to be funny. The other thing I love about this is the jazz aesthetic of it – both the instrumentation and key changes, but also the syncopation and other changes in rhythm. So clever. Happy Friday!
