Thanks, machaus -- that cracked me up. Like many Gould fans, though, I always loved his un-editable singing, and would hate it if they ever managed to remove it entirely.

From the makers of the Tom Waits voice derasper and the Joe Cocker stand-still-while-singalator.

and what about the creaky piano bench?

I think the first example works better because it keeps the setup and punchline in the correct order.

On preview: Well put, squirrel.

I don't agree with xammerboy. I wish this were real.

Will it work with Keith Jarrett recordings too, or is it customized for Gould?

Funny, thanks!

(Watched The Triplets of Belleview last night, there was some Glenn Gould footage in it)

I like Glenn Gould's technique, but I find the humming so annoying that I can't listen to his recordings. It's the Charles Rosen recording of the Goldberg Variations for me, thanks.
