Show-time!

Listening with headphones was the key!  ;)

Excellent performance of Karl's wonderful work Verb-Blur

For Karl's work, go to 38:50 on the YouTube video!  The YouTube video also has a link to all the texts used in the concert.

A thoroughly fine program, and I am very pleased with Verb-Blur!

Here is the concert, which so far is NOT on the Jacksonville University channel:

Go to c. 38:40 for the opening:

Well, in the past two days, I have applied for two different commissions.  Not that I have any great expectation of being chosen, but because I have strong music to send in, so if they reject me, at least they know my musical mettle.

If they reject you, their rejection may qualify as evidence against their musical taste! 

The opposite of Edward Gibbon's statement about the poetry of Ausonius: "The poetical fame of Ausonius condemns the taste of his age."   ;)

Two people who listened to Verb-Blur sent the following:

"That music was so...well, just COOL...The conductor was absolutely right, it's to be experienced like rain falling in random patterns.  Your poem was perfect for the composer's music!  I really enjoyed it, thank you!"

And

"The music put me into a fugue state: (Karl Henning) really got into the heart of the words. It truly is a fantastic poem with music to match!"
