I took the darned test three times and ended up being Stravinsky all three times. How can this be? I want to be Copeland or Satie or Debussy, or maybe spitting out mazurkas like Chopin, but Stravinsky???!!! Who created this test anyway?? Account for yourself!

Hi, ATM, Shostakovich here, too, and also wondering why I haven't liked my own stuff more. :shrug:

So, while I'm getting soused on vodka :innocent: and my teams of monkeys are nearing the end of Henry IV, pt. 1 :sweating: , which is now at (N-3)-3 letters (I was really hoping for The Tempest :shrug: ), and referring back to Mel's post on monkey's aesthetic predilections, here's a site that exhibits wonderful paintings by Asian elephants. http://www.novica.co...x.cfm?c=601&l=5

It is fascinating to note the thematic, stylistic and color choices that characterize the works of particular artists. Hey, if I can be Ashtochine, these pachys can be artists! :wub:

In very low, subsonic tones, would be my guess. But you're the biologist. I thought you'd know for sure, Treefrog! :grinning:
