October 10 - Joyful Noise

Off to school on a day off to pick up recompense and record

Amazing Joseph: IX. Now I Can Die
The Ten Commandments
Moses and Aaron: I. Now There Arose

The latter including 37 baby-sound-files from the BBC panned from left to right -- played for Doug (who has two young'uns at home) and ostensibly dedicated to Carolyn (former spouse and daycare provider)...

Before this, work on the December 2008 and reconstruct half of the old September 2005 issue of 21st-Century Music (up at and eventually at and in print), and finish orchestrating M&A: I.

After, home again, helping Harriet put on address labels for the Opera Apocalypse ( and postcards, after which, one page of Moses and Aaron: II. Woman Conceived (Barcarolle) orchestrated (after Leonard Bernstein's Candide: King's Barcarolle and Claude Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun).

Given where I'm orchestrating, can't resist revisiting Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn ("I Learn About Moses and the Bulrushers," etc.), which is as hilarious as ever.
