Eyes Wide Shut Easter Egg - Masked Ball Song - What's Behind?
Everybody remembers the masked ball opening, with the naked girls in the circle and that priest (or whatever he is supposed to be)? O.K., now try to remember the song on he background - you can't understand a single word, right?
So, it is called Masked Ball, by Jocelyn Pook.
Play the piece reversed (from the end to beginning) and you find this incredible fact:
It is an original pray song, recorded perhaps in a ROMANIAN Greek-Orthodox church.
Well, it is in Romanian and reversed, no wonder why is not understandable. The background music is added and not reversed - after all, the romanian church is not using musical instruments.
Interesting and fascinating - My guess is that Jocelyn Pook was influenced by Gyorgy Ligeti who composed the film's background music (the one with the piano). He is romanian by origin. Just a guess.
Spread the word and
