MIT-Wellesley Toons: “Feelin‘ Groovy (30th Reunion Edition)” (music video)
POch3lbel’s Cannon in D (For The Most Part) (mp3)
Arr. mjuvekar & shardulc (2000–), orig. Johann Pachelbel (1653–1706).
“We set out with one goal—to combine the elegance and intricacy of Baroque music with the flexibility and experimentalism afforded by modern electronic instruments. Upon much research, we found that among the vast, rich Baroque repertoire, Pachelbel’s Canon in D offered the most fertile grounds for further development, due to its recognizability, versatility, centuries of history, and solid foundations in the cello line. Drawing inspiration from classics such as Pachelbel’s Chicken and Hlavní nadraží Praha - znělka 02 (Dlouhá verze), we embarked on the bold quest of arranging this iconic piece for the humble Pocket Operator (PO-33).
The first step was to obtain the perfect audio samples: we tried a creaking door, we tried a garbage disposal, we tried a running faucet, but finally what really clicked was the sound of a groan from shardulc’s mucus-lined throat. Then we took a look or two at the score (an authentic source) and let the creative juices flow. One thing led to another, and in time, the fruit of our labor was ripe. We are proud to present a work that we believe is truly representative of today’s age. We hope you enjoy (?) it.”
