The Sandpaper Ballet

Any orchestral work that uses sandpaper as a musical "instrument" qualifies as weird. But when it's performed by men in tutus, it's even weirder.

Reminiscent of "Soft Shoe" dancing. (Did I get that right? A bit before (even) my time.)

yep, that's why it seemed familiar expat. i've seen some of those old movies with soft shoe dancing and this is probably how they made the sound track. you know shoes don't scuff that loud on the floor. also, who amongst us speaks this language? translation please. i'd love to know why the tutus.
