In previous posts, we have observed that farts have the qualities of both speech and music. Although we believe it is theoretically possible to communicate with farts, the physiological challenges are daunting, and we have made little progress in this area. Thus it was with some surprise that one of the members of our college recently succeeded in producing the elements of fart-based music.
The output was related to one of the most popular and awesome songs in the history of Western music, namely The Final Countdown, by the band Europe. The band is pictured here:
The video linked above has been viewed approximately 1 billion times, but for those who are unfamiliar with the song, it is characterized by one of the most famous synthesizer riffs of all time. The musical notation is here:
Although we have not succeeded in farting the entire riff, a recent fart managed to approximate the first four notes:
Needless to say, we are still a long way from producing truly fart-based music, but these and other signs of progress are encouraging.
