I played bassoon all through high school and was lured away by rock and roll. Someday I'd like to take it up again and probably will.
My question concerns the bassoon line in the Pink Floyd song, "Is There Anybody Out There?". When the nylon string guitar starts its arpeggios, there is what I presume to be a bassoon playing a quarter note pattern that starts on an A and shoots up a couple of octaves. It sound like an embouchure thing, but I'm not even sure if it's an actual bassoon or something else. Like all other things completely unfair to bassoonists, the internet has been of no help so far! Hopefully someone here will give a listen.
