As a matter of fact, I haven’t heard of that piece you were talking about. I don’t listen to much brony fan music because, you know, it tends to kind of suck. You shouldn’t assume like that, when you assume, you make an ASS out of U and ME (ha ha, comedy…)

Anyway, one of the great things to come out of the 20th century was the perfection of the modern orchestra. For hundreds of years, the orchestra kept getting larger and larger until you got to the late Romantic orchestra, a bloated and disgusting thing with a sound made muddy by the sheer mass of instrumentation. The modern orchestra was the first in the orchestration tradition to actually scale back on instruments, and the result is a perfect blend of tone colors and proportion. This perfect orchestral blend is a great boon to all the arts which can make use of it.

So for today’s music, we’ll be listening to some Mingus. I would really like to get more into myself is jazz. Check out this sexy beast.
