On Hold

At this very moment, I’m listening to a thin, tinny version of Minuet in G. It’s just the first 16 bars, playing over and over on a mind-numbing loop. My brain keeps jumping to the next section, recalling fuller, more interesting performances of the piece. Couldn’t they at least have found a real piano version to use, rather than these awful computer-generated tones? Alternatively, they could play the whole piece, or include other works entirely. Waiting is bad enough, why is it that so often the soundtrack turns a tedious experience into one that’s unbearable?
