Ever wanted to be in the percussion section of an orchestra for the epic final bars of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture? Who wouldn’t? All those firing cannons, thundering drums and crashing cymbals are just fantastic. Not to mention the full orchestra and rapturous audience in front of you.
The viral news site Us vs Th3m has created a game that lets you control the greatest percussive cacophony in music history. Hit your computer’s ‘L’ key to crash the cymbals, and ‘A’ to fire the all-important cannon. You’re even scored on your ability to do it all in time.
So, earplugs in, and eyes on the conductor – the finale’s about to begin… Start the game by clicking on the image below.
