October 19 - Gathering Storm Clouds
Harriet out on a job and there's work to do catching up on the Journal (starting the December 2009 issue), before the light and shadow of the Port Costa Hills, across the Carquinez Strait, leads straight to
Diablo Valley College for a dictation and keyboard-solfege (the latter just the opening second-inversion tonic triad arpeggio with the upper neighbor sixth), also presenting Arthur Rimbaud from Henry Miller in Brooklyn as a case of Habanera / Pirate Jenny major-minor collisions, including the video with Diana Landau.
Finish up the orchestration of
The Gospel According to St. Matthew
XXII. Come Unto Me
record it, as well as
For My Brother For My Brother
XI. It Is Fitting,
the latter enlightened by storm-crossing, coffee-carrying Doug, who tips that the rappers tend to record three overdubs of themselves, and, lo, it kinda works....
Then out into more lights and
shadows to orchestrate Gospel Matthew: XXIII. The Questions, compose page 5 of Pini di Surriento: IV. Torna a Via Appia, and prepare for publication and do visual libretto for
Sex and the Bible: The Opera (Part I): ...from Abraham and Isaac... II. The Separation (first strain thus far).
