anyone who has ever seen Hieronymus Bosch‘s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights knows there are some pretty freaky things going on in the 15th century painting. this of course includes what is now known as “the butt song” pictured above.
“Amelia Hamrick, who attends Oklahoma Christian University, first learned about the painting in a humanities class last year, and fascinated by it had taken to looking at it from time to time.
‘It’s kind of like a 500-year-old Where’s Waldo, she told The Oklahoman.
After viewing the painting again with her friend Luke, they noticed that one of the suffers in the hell scene had musical notes branded on their backside and decided to find out what the butt song from hell might have actually sounded like.”
and so yada-yada-yada, i give you The Butt Song for your listening pleasure. Transcribed by Amelia Hamrick, and played by James Spalink.

Conductor, 2011. by Alexander Chen.
“Conductor turns the New York subway system into an interactive string instrument. Using the MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop. The visuals are based on Massimo Vignelli’s 1972 diagram.”
