October 14 - Gathering Storms

Two more pages of The Gospel According to St. Matthew: The Coming Persecutions orchestrated, and soon it's off on a second stormy day

through the Fairfield



via Paradise Valley to Theory Class we go, for the Walt Disney Fantasia retelling of Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, harmonic discussions re Claude Debussy and Stravinsky, and impressive student compositions.

Finally record the Tritone Orchestra versions of

The Gospel According to St. Matthew:

XX. The Twelve, and

For My Brother For My Brother

7. VIII. Baby's Head

8. IX. You've Noticed

(yes, you've noticed that the arabic and roman numerals differ) before braving the elements once more, heading towards San Francisco

but thwarted by a big delay on the

Bay Bridge,

avoiding it (thanks to the iPhone and sign warnings) by diverting north on 80, south on 13, west on 238 (no matter what the signage says), south on 880, west on 92 over the San Mateo Bridge, and north on 101 to Potrero Hill

for a San Francisco Composers Chamber Orchestra Board Meeting with

Erling, Michael,

Loren, and Davide. Home via Marin and Sonoma to prepare for publication and do the visual libretto for

Sex and the Bible: The Opera (Part I)... from Quartet for the Beginning of Time: Adam and Eve and Cain and Abel...III. Abyss of Separation.
