An alphorn player accompanies a group of polychromatic carolers on a desert plain far removed from fields of edelweiss, creating an air of mystery for the viewer. No moon rises for this benighted ensemble, suggesting their pitch center varies more than the Star Spangled Banner did at the 2021 CPAC convention. Whatever the group’s shortcomings, this portrait of sonic entropy would befit a vomitorium, ensuring guests never overstay their welcome.
