What would happen if FZ had a lecture from Edgar VarÃ¨se?
EV: I must confess that my favorite rock song you did was â€œWhatâ€™s the ugliest part of your body? [Here Edgard stands up, grabs an imaginary microphone, adapts a strikingly campy look on his face and sings], some saaay your nose, ba ba ba some saaaaay your toes, I think itâ€™s your mi-hind, think itâ€™s your mind, think itâ€™s your mi-i-i-i-i-i-nd.â€
FZ: Gosh Mr Varese, Iâ€™m flattered.
EV: I also like very much your Uncle Meat, not so much Yellow Snow.
FZ: Itâ€™s all about the big nasty.
EV: See. Itâ€™s your nasty obsession.
