August 16 - Brains, Rains, Trains
17 pages of orchestration, finishing Babel, Op. 47, with III. And so the Lord scattered them -- 29 total -- a short piece, second movement vaguely Latin, third with suggestions of passacaglia (as the first) and blues -- probably clocking in under 5 minutes -- we'll see next week, as hope to record soon.
And beyond that, another page (5) of Iliad Songs, Op. 46, orchestrated as well -- pg. 3 of second movement Odysseus, with compositional and instrumental disposition based on a collision of Igor Stravinsky's castanet Bransle and Quartet of Four Duos, both from Agon.
