How many contrabassoons is too many?

This is one of the most horrifying things I have ever seen. It’s not that it’s bad, but the fact that this exists is disturbing. Nine contrabassoons, and bagpipe, or at least I think that’s a bagpipe, because what it looks like is a infant deer that was taxidermied and turned into some musical instrument. Mostly what is disturbing is how happy the music is. According to the uploader, every year in the the village of Zadní Třebaň a piece for a bunch of contrabassoons and voice is commissioned, based on the text of a absurdist poem. So as I said, every year, since 2004. So that means there is more…This one is sort of cute, but only because it has a couple little girls playing recorder, accompanied by, yes, nine contrabassoons…
