Everyone likes to discuss what ifs. What if they hadn’t gone out with that psycho? What if they hadn’t drunk so much and slept with that pestilence-riddled munter? What if they won the lottery? What if Hitler was killed before the second world war started?
However, I’ve never heard of anyone say. What if we took classically trained musicians back in time to perform covers of modern tracks?
How about two classically trained cellists being transported back to the 18th century. What if they were to play the track Thunderstruck by AC/DC? Like these two below.
What changes would be caused as a result of them playing these songs? What if a classically trained singer was added to provide words (if needed at all)? How would it affect the development of music, and therefore society, if rock music, metal, even pop was introduced centuries before its time.
Fancy a challenge? Write a story, or even an essay on how society would be different now.
