I’m showing 2 epic photos of The Stooges from last years Riot Fest in Analogue Gallery’s SOUND IMAGE show! The opening reception is this Friday March 6th, 6-11pm. If you’re around downtown Toronto this Friday and like the look of fine art music photography, come on by!
—The Music Written on This Dude's Butt
Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.
so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell
EDIT: I still can’t believe this took off like it did this is crazy??? Just wanted to let people know that there are indeed errors in the transcription and this is indeed not a very good recording (I threw this together in like 30 minutes at 1 in the morning,) but I’m working with the music department at my college to get the transcription more accurate!
in the meantime enjoy this fantastic choral arrangement by wellmanicuredman i’m in love
From the mind of a 600 year old painter comes the music written on the butt of an unfortunate member of hell.
