For me its rap or acid rock.

Having to listen only to Strauss waltzes... Rap and Acid Rock take a close second, but the Waltz King (yeah right) hits a nerve with me...

1. Being forced to listen to RAP music for eternity.

2. Being forced to play an ancient dead upright for an eternity in front of people who cannot hear it.

3. Being forced to play an out of tune spinet that hurts my hands sometimes, in front of people, for eternity.

4. Losing my beloved shrine to elephants, my Henry, for an eternity.

5. Not being able to sing or play any instrument, for eternity. Duh!

6. Getting kicked out of Piano World for eternity.

7. Having no money to spend on music, for eternity.

8. No music at all, for eternity and beyond.

9. Being forced to listen to bad karaoke singers for eternity. ( I had to judge a contest for a casino one time, that is a story I'll save for another day. LOL)

10. Losing all my playing gigs to canned music for eternity.

11. No pizza, for eternity.

wolfindmist,
Sounds like the Twighlight Zone. Of course I only watched it once in my entire life but the episode I saw was a guy who had to sit at a restaurant and eat Chinese food - for an eternity.

For me, probably any kind of heavy metal music. Then there's old style "twangy" country. Maybe Dixieland - I went on a mini riverboat/dinner cruise once (well it turned out to be a fried chicken picnic-style dinner) and the constant Dixie style music from a live band the whole time about drove me nuts. Then there's opera. For classical, maybe Wagner.

In general as well, just about any style that sounds the same no matter the song. Also, on one of those songs that gets stuck in your head that you can't get away from - having to listen to it over and over, for example, Feliz Navidad. Just the title gets the song going in one's head.

Oh, and speaking of instruments, having nothing to play but a 61 key, weightless keyboard, for eternity.

What is your favorite pizza place? Maybe I could order some and have it sent to you in one of your "eternal" musical torture chambers. No, seriously, what's a good pizza place recommendation?

I miss the old Pizza and Pipes place they had. The pizza wasn't great but the "Pipes" were awesome. Big old pipe organ like the Morman Tabernacle Choir has wrapped around the pizza place. Sadly the place burned down, I belive it was arson or an accident.

In town there is a place that makes pizza with Groendahl Swiss Cheese (I think that's how they spell it). 7 bucks a small chunk at your deli.
The parlor has a 50's decor and juke box too, with a Patsy Cline concert poster I would hanker for. It's just a small local place.

Gotta have good pizza to make good music.
So it is a musical torture chamber to me.
Pizza is life. Life is music. No pizza, no music.
It's in my contract.

12. I order a Bosie piano and it never gets to my place; ends up in some hotel room in the middle of a cat 4 hurricane where it stays there for eternity.

Having to learn theory or study music "properly" at a university or school of music.

Being confined to a room with professional musicians and academics without recourse to a few stiff drinks.

Being confined to a room with a lot of boom-boom pop music without recourse to earplugs and a few stiff drinks.

Being forced to sit through hymns,oratorios and Beethoven slow movements, with no presentable women in sight and without recourse to a stiff drink.

I don't particularly like pizzas. I prefer jambalaya aux chaurices (rice with garlic, peppers and chipolatas). That, together with a large Napoleon brandy, would see me through the most gruelling slow movement.

Add this to my list...

12. Having to work at Guitar Center in the Keyboards Sales Room with all the keyboards turned on full blastisimo at the same time for eternity. And no earplugs or headphones in sight.

* Sometimes, I feel for the employees of that place on the loudest days. It's enough to drive a sane person crazy.

So, a pretty large proportion of the piano repertoire then?

Of course you are entitled to your opinion but how can Beethoven be a musical torture chamber? What is it that you don't like about his music? Or Chopins?

I was going to say . . . if those composers are torture for you, you are in trouble going into a music program.

(There's always a sarcastic one in the crowd smile )

-Hope your prof's torture you by assigning music from your favorite composers. Better yet hope they torture you by assigning anything and everything but the music by your favorite composers laugh .

P.S. - Had pizza for supper minus stiff drinks (I don't drink laugh ).

Another musical torture chamber - listening to piano students play "Heart and Soul" - for an eternity.

Having to listen to one of those fake clock chimes adinfinitum - those battery driven ones that sound so completely, unbelievably hokey.

Having to sit in my car and listen to the windshield wipers scrape across the windshield. They make a LOUD RUBBER SOUNDING scraping noise. (Honestly, EVERYTHING about my car is NOISY. It makes that high pitched whiny noise Jeeps make when I back the car up. The fan for the heater HUMS at some ungodly pitch. There is a LOW PITCHED VACUUM NOISE that hurts my ears when I close the doors. It has METALLIC BRAKE PADS that make an UNGODLY SCREETCHING NOISE when it is humid out or raining. There's some kind of whistling noise something under the hood makees. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH.

And have I mentioned how I reacted to the NEW STOVE we bought? Any of you buying a new stove, if the touch control pad is on the FRONT of your stove, PREPARE THYSELF. An audible FAN turns on when you turn the OVEN on. JUST WHAT I NEED. MORE NOISE IN THE KITCHEN. I've gotten used to it now. There is no alternative BTW for those of us wanting the knobs on the front of the stove. We must now live with TA-DUM...............THE FAN IN THE KITCHEN.

clap, clap, clap, clap, clap - thumb !

I second all those things. I haven't had the oven experience but have first hand experience with all the others. I especially love the clock example. A relative gave us one of those fake chiming clocks for a gift once. My husband loved it and wouldn't part with it and thought I was crazy for being annoyed with it. It finally broke - how unfortunate laugh .

Add to your list the perpetual sound in the dryer from snaps on jeans, overall clasps, and zippers clanging - "clank, clank, clank, clank . . . "

Get the dryer, the dishwasher, the oven fan, and the furnace going and turn up the t.v. to be heard over everything and you have your own little household orchestra.

Oh and we added a gas fireplace a few years back which creates a much more "pleasing" constant hissing sound as opposed to the "annoying" crackle of a real wood fireplace.

Having to listen to bad karaoke without a GONG OR MANY Stiff Drinks (anyone remember the gong show?)

A church choir where the average age is 90 and the squeal of their hearing aids is in a different key than the music.

Those Gameboy game background ditties repeatedly
Especially the Mario Brothers one

Anything Rap-ish or screaming heavy metal

The "This is a test of the emergency broadcasting network" annoying Tones & Beeps

Gelineau (aka Jelly Nose) Psalms

Speaker Buzz or the Hamster's wheel

1. A room in which the same thing were played over and over, exactly the same way, without end, for eternity.

2. A room in which no music played.

I rank #2 as #2 because I would take it over #1. I can make up my own music in room #2, but in room #1, I would find that to be more difficult. wink


Every day we are afforded a new chance. The problem with life is not that you run out of chances. In the end, what you run out of are days.

Listening to an almost life sized hip swivelling red bellied Santa/Elvis hybrid automaton wheezing out Christmas carols for eternity. They had one in CVS on the prescription counter.

1) Being stuck in an elevator that plays nothing but musak, for eternity.
2) Being stuck in a room with, ummm... a certain kind of karaoke, for eternity (for what kind, see http://www.wingtunes.com/public/songs.aspx )
3) Being stuck in a shopping centre during the last shopping week before Christmas, with all the intensified christmas jingles being played non-stop to encourage shoppers to hurry up and make room for more shoppers, stuck in a timeloop, that just keeps going back to the start of that week, for eternity.
4) Being stuck in a room where pieces all the theory professors wrote were being played non-stop, for eternity (theory teachers don't write good compositions!)
5) Being stuck at the country music awards, for eternity. (shudder!)
6) Being stuck at a middle-school battle of the bands, for eternity.
7) Having to sing a medley of the stupidest Children's Songs for choir, for eternity (THIS ONE IS ACTUALLY TRUE! AGHHH, well, except for the "for eternity" part, thank god)
8) Having to listen to a TV or radio station of non-stop advertisement jingles, really loudly, for eternity.
9) Having to sing choral vocal warmup excersizes, for eternity.
10) And the ULTIMATE, having to listen to a compilation of all the most dissonant, most atonal, and most loud pieces ever written, for eternity.

My musical torture would be being locked in a room with a stereo that won't shut off, only playing Elliot Carter, Messaien, or Schoenberg.

I would literally kill myself.
