A stunningly tasteless performance of a work is just that. Such interpretive jolts are more like a sudden rush of gutter profanities at a diplomatic gathering than they are like the assassination of a diplomatic mission during negotiations. Tastelessness doesn’t quite destroy the piece or the performance; however, it does wreck the mood.

Occasionally, the failure may be so dramatic as to compel us to withhold saying that the performance was of anything recognizable, even if we consider it an attempted performance of some work; for instance, the attempt at coloratura soprano solos undertaken by Florence Foster Jenkins.

To sound the work properly through the modulator, the player must input a sequence of pitches unrelated harmonically to the work’s score but related mathematically; for example, by the subtraction function characteristic of a modulator which outputs difference tones. What the player actually sounds on the instrument to get some work as output is that work as scored plus the modulator’s oscillation frequency.
