CGAA The Tune: A Biomechanical Symphony

Featuring the work of Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, Eliot Goldenthal and John Frizzell, this 2009 concert by The Tenerife Film Orchestra & Choir is a selection box of musical motifs from the Alien franchise.  As always when I watch actual performances of classical music, I experience an attack of open-mouthed idiocy as I realise that I still don't know how all those human beings manipulating all those wooden and metal objects are actually making the music - or even more amazingly, how they're making all the hairs on my arms stand up. I give you Alien - A Biomechanical Symphony - happy listening.
