    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    I wonder what David Cross would think about the violin playing?Of course, what does the true master think about this effort?

    not my fave Crim track, but that was soooo goooooood.
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    I didn't actually hear much of "Vrooom Vrooom" in there, but it's a nice arrangement and I'm very impressed by the mix, The electric instruments are neither overwhelming nor lost in the sea of sound, so that they are genuinely part of the string orchestra.

    Great job - personally I would rather have it 100% "organic" with no electric instruments, but that's me speaking as a classical music enthusiast.
    If it isn't Krautrock, it's krap.

    Whoa... that was seriously good. I wonder how many of the players (they look soooo young) heard mom or dad playing King Crimson from their music collections? Hahahhahhaaah. A story nugget ~ As a young man, playing in public school orchestra, and a side 'gig' with the Middletown Youth Symphony, the Youth Symphony played an orchestra charted version of the 'Theme from Shaft'. Us very young players felt an increased connection with the music… as it was 'part' of our own musical/listening world outside of the orchestra. It was a very cool musical connection I cherish to this day!

    I'd like to have a conversation with the players in the video. What was it like to play that intense 'rock and roll' type piece in an orchestral setting??

    Nice that someone is re-interpreting King Crimson music in interesting ways.
