Zing!!! is a one minute video opera done in Flash, which puts the viewer in an animated twilight zone. Imagine a bay windowed area of your living room with a baritone saxophone, a contrabass clarinet, an alto saxophone, an upright piano, a bassoon smoking a large cigar, a piccolo with a demons head, TV screens on each corner playing a video montage of saxophone characterizations and a line of naked chorus girls from the famous Albert Arthur Allen photo 1925. Then they all come to life singing a sextet of German opera-like party music. An old grouch then sticks his head in the window pleading with them to shut-up. A little opera goes a long way here to stimulate a number of your most vile senses. You may want to play this one again and again and again.
