I liked it.  Congrats on the successful performance!

Let's get this performance shared with as many people as possible!  E-mail, Facebook, MySpace, OuterSpace, whatever!

Many thanks for the update, Karl, and let's hope for many more and greater successes soon!

And I am glad to see that GMG is working again!

Note ye that was more than the Jerusalem Quartet attracted the last time it was in SoFla.
I am quite glad to met, albeit briefly, Karl, and to have heard such a great performance of Plotting.
The Hohvaness work was good to hear...once.

Congratulations on the Plotting performance, Karl.

My suggestion for a completely integrated musical/visual experience is that the Plotting video needs to be
(a) rotated anticlockwise through 90 degrees; and then
(b) mirrored about the vertical axis.
Thus y becomes visually, as well as musically, the new x.

Affine transformations. Don'tcha just love 'em?

Good "Plotting", Karl. As a harpsichord enthusiast I'm always glad to see new music for the instrument whether solo or in a group. Nice piece!

The plotting thickens!

If the plot thickens, then we are introducing a third dimension, z. Which will require you to compose a new piece of music: 'z is the new y'.

No, no, I wanted to keep the textures clean!

That said, Paul remarked of one certain section of the Passacaglia, "I never knew I could have such trouble counting 3 . . . ."

There is no document of the lecture as actually delivered, but these were my notes.

Karl, I have taken the liberty of extracting a small section of your lecture notes, reflecting it about a vertical axis, and rotating the result clockwise through 90 degrees (as explained above). We can all now enjoy the visual (and somewhat Pythonesque) experience of y literally being the new x:

Tonight is the second choir rehearsal of my sixth year with Holy Trinity United Methodist Church.  For the first four years one of my best tenors was a nonagenarian, a wonderfully cheerful fellow named Jack.  As his eyesight failed, he came to choir less and less.  I periodically rang him to see how he was doing.

On a somber note, at this past Sunday's service we learnt that Jack had died.  The choir will sing to honor him at the memorial service this Saturday, my arrangement of Precious Lord.

There are more amazing people in their 90's than ever before!  My wife's aunt is 94 and drives around town, walks with no problem, speaks clearly with no memory lapses, etc.  She is easily mistaken for someone 30 years younger.
