Symphony Impossible to Play is the twenty-first official album released on the Homestuck Bandcamp, the eighth solo album released by an independent member of the Homestuck music team, and the first album of Solo Album Month. As the name implies, the scant four tracks on this album by Clark "Plazmataz" Powell are all sweeping symphonic movements, all making use of previous compositions from the Homestuck discography.

- Symphony Impossible to Play was the first of three albums planned to be released during the month of August 2012. It was followed closely by Erik "Jit" Scheele's One Year Older, but would not be joined by Alexander Rosetti's Genesis Frog until near the end of October, almost two months behind schedule.
- The album's name comes from a particularly literary page from Homestuck itself: "Somewhere a zealous god threads these strings between the clouds and the earth, preparing for a symphony it fears impossible to play."
- "I - Overture", though seemingly a mere Homestuck symphonic medley at the time of release, would be granted considerable prestige after being extended by Toby "Radiation" Fox and used as the theme for Act 7, the final page of Homestuck's story.
- According to Powell himself, the songs in Symphony Impossible to Play are "literally impossible for an organic orchestra to perform".
