I did The Chores today and was reminded what a great workout it is.
I thought that the juxtaposition of up-tempo rock music for the above-threshold intevals with gentler classical music during the brief recoveries worked for the campy theme. I particularly liked the music used in the recovery intervals for the final series. I’m certain that it is a two-part keyboard invention by J. S. Bach, but don’t know which one. Unlike the longer intervals, the music in these short snippets is not identified or credited. Not sure if it is in the minions job description to dig out this kind of information, but it would be great to know more about this piece.
