Well, kids, it was bound to happen sooner or later. I'd have to play something from Frank Zappa. I'm on a bit of a Zappa kick at the moment - fueled by my Sony PS-X75 turntable and a stack of records - so when I found this video at YouTube, obviously, I had to post it.
The hook for the Ghibli blog - hah - is that this musical score, a classical work conducted by Pierre Boulez and released on Zappa's album, "Perfect Stranger," is set to a 1976 clay animation by Bruce Bickford. I wouldn't say the animation is created with Zappa's composition in mind, but it does seem to fit nicely, and it's a great opportunity to enjoy all artists involved.
Is this all just a cheap stunt to delay talking about Goro Miyazaki's crummy movie? Ah, who knows? Whatever. Enjoy debating this one!
