And even choral groups who concertize independent of actual church services . . . similarly, far the greater part either do new music which is a lot 'sexier' than mine, or they're devoted to musical curatorship.  Not much of a slice for me to target . . . .

Well even Bach found it difficult to compete with the sexier Telemann, but we know the winner was there in the long run. 8)

Just sent a disc with the NEC recording of Out in the Sun to the gent in Ann Arbor who will be conducting the piece this November.

Anyone in or near Atlanta, game for some mid-November Henningmusick?

Well, we moved a few years ago from there, back to Ohio!  You could have stayed with us, across from Oglethorpe University!

And we could have driven with you down all of the 317 streets with "Peachtree" in the name!   :o

Wish I had more energy this evening;  it would be well to practice . . . .

It's not accurate anymore, though . . . the facial hair has been coming back in.

Yeah you see you kind of have to shave daily to keep it smooth. ;D ;D jeje

Notes on Heedless Watermelon, to a flautist new to the piece

1.   At the Lo stesso tempo (m. 21ff.) Peter ‘conducts’ the beats . . . with the switch from unison to the ‘freely’ different rhythms between the two parts that starts at m.21, having the beat marked helps keep things in order.
2.   m.50ff. takes a lot of ironing;  the combination of 1. the flute being rhythmically all over the place, 2. the clarinet providing nearly a moto perpetuo backdrop, and 3. the rapid tempo, has meant that we worked that section out many times, in hopes of ensuring that we reach the unison at the double-bar at m.63 together.
3.   After so much unison writing, the close canon beginning with the final eighth-note of m.81 requires a little extra ‘awareness’.
4.   For the most part, the section beginning at m.86 falls readily into place;  the 11/8 of m.88 is a little tricky.
5.   Same note as note (3.), viz. m.124ff.
6.   Material from note (2.) returns at m.194
7.   The last bar should last the equivalent of about five measures ‘in time’ . . . Peter & I have been holding the forte steady for three bars’ worth, and then decrescendo-ing (which must be a duplicate present participle) for two bars’ worth.

Re-charging the Microtrack II, which will likely be the instrument recording the proceedings tomorrow.

Yeesh, I've got to throw a program together.  They won't have anything at the library.  Won't need many . . . if I do up 40 of 'em, we'll have ample left over.

That beard was lucky?   ???

Grow beard, grow!  Last night my wife and I strolled through The Asian Supermarket, where we saw tea "guaranteed hair to grow!"

Since it did not tell exactly where the hair would grow, maybe Karl can chug-a-lug some this afternoon.  I think it had ginger in it.

Of course, if Ginger from Gilligan's Island came with it, well...
