comment What does it mean to write a song in a certain key?
This answer is great, and spot on for all the aspects of the question. I was thinking that something was missing in the previous answers. This answer completed it.

comment What does it mean to write a song in a certain key?
Just to clarify: Not all songs start on the base key note, although it is quite common (and it is so for "Yankee Doodle" in this example). It is even more common that a song ends on the base key note (again not always, but very common).

32 seconds was just a way of saying a short time. The number was picked quite randomly.

comment How can I construct analogue oscillators that stay in tune?
@NReilingh: Yes, but oiling the valves is standard maintenance of a brass instrument. The question here is more in the line of designing and producing an electrical instrument, which is not in the scope here on Music... The question Rob posted on Electronics got a good response, and definitely on topic there.

comment Is there some symbolic meaning to breaking all the instruments during or at the end of your music video?
I think "artistic expression" and "gimmick" is just two different ways of describing the same thing. It is certainly used in different context, but both describe basically the same concept in different forms. You may say that "artistic expression" is a fancy and maybe more sophisticated expression for "gimmick".

comment What is a 13th chord?
@VarLogRant: I think you should edit the original text "third and fifth" to say the correct "root and fifth" instead of adding a correction as extra text in the post. It will be better to just leave a comment addressed to gurney alex to say that he is right, and you fixed it in answer. Letting the wrong text standing, might misinform people that does not read the entire thing to the end. By the way - don't leave a comment to answer me - just fix it, and I will remove this comment...
