Music is alive and well. It's not my music but it's music.

i cannot get these artists out of my head

this is a live version of something i have posted previously. not som many instruments, not so plished a presentation. but its real music, the stuff thta can be made in front of you by humans in real time.

fewer instruments. no studio mixing. no overdubbing. just the minimalist artists and what they can do with their instruments.

classical and related music still maintains this grounded reality. recorded classical is good to hear. well mixed is even better. but it doesnt compare to actually watchn the musicians in front of you actually doing the sound.

and this one too. a delicate piece that i am still listening to


when i find a piece of music i like, i listen to it over and over and over, until i can anticipate the instruments, , the sequence of movements, the different melodies, and the different themes coming and going. i dont know anything about music theory, but i can sometimes piece together a bit of what the artists are doing by stupid brute force.

the advantage of this is that i can eventually carry fairly long pieces of music in my head, that i can replay to myself when ever i want. poetry is like that-- you cant possess a piece of poetry until youve internalized it so throughly that you can recite it yourself.

i can do short pieces of poetry--lewis carroll-level stuff-- and before i die i want to actualize a lifelong dream of memorizing as much of coleridges rime of the ancient mariner as i can. if i can do some of thati will finally achieved a bit of value n my life that might last a while.

i would do eliot but he infuriates me whenever i read anything he wrote, like james joyce. but like with joyce, i keep coming back.

Poetry is best captured in snatches.

In my ongoing exploration of music I've discovered something truly remarkable I want to share with you guys. What is astonishing is that the Danish composer Rued Langgaard composed this piece, The Music of the Spheres, in 1916.


Related to this, Per Nørgård tells a funny story about how he tricked Gyorgÿ Ligeti into discovering this piece.


As many here may be aware, Stanley Kubrick used Ligeti's music in 2001: A Space Odyssey.


As I've said many times before: classical music is a never-ending journey of discovery for me.
