Sushi Train Orchestra

instrument train

As each instrument tethered to the travelling sushi train emerges and passes a seated musician, they have to play it for a few seconds until it moves to the next person who then takes their turn.

The musicians are of course all multi-instrumentalists, and able to quickly adopt to the rapid changes required. A special piece has also been composed that takes the unique timing and orchestration into account required for the event.

       So either the aerophones are somehow disinfected between the players, or those players have to be Really Good Friends ... ?

       Perhaps this would work better if the musicians ride in a "sushi train" of gondolas.

       No metronome needed with the clickety clack.   

       If the carriages were of different lengths and it was a long powerful train carrying multiple copies of the wanted instruments, either rolling stock or impromptu music can be formed.

       Ah, you must be referring to the piece known as " Covid's 19th "

       Having never heard of a sushi train, I originally thought this was one of those random word collection ideas, like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which I thought at the time was the most dada concept ever.

       We may be approaching the age when attempts at dada are misconstrued as gaga ... followed in due course by the age at which they actually are.

       I feel like this is just the beginning of exploration into a great untapped vein of sushi train HB ideas.

       ... for example, no-one's done a sushi-train orrery yet.

       Of course "train" is a verb as well as a noun.

       He hides them up his bum. The rainbow coloured poo was the giveaway according to the nurses, after hours of searching.
