Vormittagsspuk (Ghosts Before Breakfast), created in 1928 by Hans Richter. Objects decide to get freedom and to play on their own music. Hats start to dance in the air, beards are vanishing, the ladder doesn't lead to anywhere any more. Serious guys are confused, as each moment another group of objects is contradicting any logic, and what's more, the number of objects at a certain moment of time is rigorously the same as the number of serious guys. Are they also forced to play the weird dance? Are they also participating in the conspiracy, without being aware of? Bulgakov and his Master and Margarita come to mind.
The video uses the score of Donald Sosin. Let's note also composers Paul Hindemith and Darius Milhaud within the cast.
