April 9 - Wilderness of Music

Morning write-up for of Roger Waters and Pink Floyd, music which somehow brings to mind the Wilderness of Rocks in Joshua Tree National Monument.

Dictation and harmony is the Bed scene from Philip Glass's Einstein on the Beach --

Fm/C Eb/G C/G D

which could very well be C: iv64 bIII6 I64 II (V of V) --

followed by keyboard exercise of 12-bar blues derived from Muddy Waters's Hoochie-Coochie Man.

Home writing up Philip Glass, as above, then updating re upcoming Steven Clark Star Trek show on April 14 and

The Red Horse program the following 19, plus listening to John Adams (On the Transmigration of Souls), Edvard Grieg, Charles Ives, Dmitri Shostakovich (Symphony No. 8), Richard Wagner, Ralph Vaughan Williams (Symphony No. 2).

Prepare for publication the second page of the Triple Fugato of Vengeance from Act V, Scene 1 Mice and Men (some of this was sketched out on the Appalachian Trail, on the way to Mt. Katahdin).

Have to also get The Bald Soprano: Overture ready for tomorrow to give to Nora Lee at Marin Symphony.
