August 12 - Academic Day-Off Endeavors

Time to go to UC Davis, to see if a score of Igor Stravinsky's Babel is available for orchestrational inspiration, proceeding past one of Robert Arneson's Egghead sculptures, specifically Eye on Mrak (Fatal Laff),

down the promenade,

to Shields Library (not Mendota).

[Goat Hall / San Francisco Cabaret Opera 2001 Fresh Voices II production: Sharon Walters, Harriet March Page, Laetitia C. Page)

Thereafter to DVC Lab, recording five Antigone selections (instrumental versions)

XI. What Is This?
XII. The Pride of Oedipus
XIII. Where Are You Going?
XIV. I Shall Save You Yet
XV. You Think You Knew

Then home, minutes before Harriet returns from the city, to orchestrate first three pages of Babel, Op. 47 (1992), troped on the Stravinsky.
