You know that feeling when you look at a video on the internet before pressing play and just know deep in your heart what you’re going to hear when you click on it? And then it completely challenges those expectations?
For example, I thought when I clicked on this video of a unicorn drawn in a music composition program (Ableton, specifically) that it would sound like a cacophonous mess. Well surprise! That is not what it sounds like.

I’m very sorry.
