bolero no melody

Someone has removed all the melody lines from Ravel’s Bolero and turned it into a total borefest.

Traditionally, the proto-drone classic Bolero by Marice Ravel is held up as an example of how one simple, beguiling melody is all you need to create an orchestral classic.

But now, someone has removed that melody and left behind only the iconic rat-tat-tat-tat of the snare, along with the orchestral backing.

It's really, really boring:
