We often hear “Play slow to go fast.” Apparently not everyone was paying attention.
HALBERSTADT, Germany (AP) — Hundreds of fans attended a special kind of musical happening Saturday at a church in Germany: a chord change in an organ piece that is supposed to last for an entirety of 639 years.
The performance of the “ORGAN/ASLSP,” or As Slow As Possible, composition began in September 2001 at the St. Burchardi Church in the eastern town of Halberstadt and is supposed to end in 2640 — if all goes well.
The next chord change is planned for Feb. 5, 2022, the German news agency dpa reported.
I guess I won’t worry about not playing “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” at 240 bpm.
