I enjoyed the monkey-music much more than I've ever enjoyed anything by Phillip Glass.

Not repetitive/boring enough to be Philip Glass but they could be featured in Sprockets.

What the sloth produced was better than 110% of the electronic music out there.

Come on, why would you give a monkey a 909? What if it breaks it!?

Also: a flock of Canada geese being crushed in a trash compactor can recreate the music of Nirvana.

"Content not available for mobile"

That's okay, but I'm looking at the page in Firefox 12 on a Windows 7 desktop machine.

The LaughingSquid site, where this suck-blog borrowed the content from, has no problem showing me the video.

I'm a keyboard player, so I'm getting a kick out of this.

What I'm not getting a kick out of is my daily ritual attempting to come to terms with how utterly replaceable I am.

I think music by monkeys would be too imaginative and unpredictable to sound anything like Philip Glass.

Do you produce your own music? If not you should. Highly recommend it

That's not surprising, because some primates have the mental capabilities of a human 3-year-old, and some 3-year-olds compose more complex music than Philip Glass.

Join a Prog-Rock band. If you've got keyboard chops, they'll actually give you the opportunity to use them.
