Under the Gun

With two pieces due soon, classes starting in shorter order than I would like, and yes, nuptuals forthcoming (including my own--on the 30th of September I am lucky enough to be marrying one Elizabeth Isadora Gold, the writer) I fear a little Felsenmusick pause is in the offing. Read other music blogs in the meantime, and I will be back with fierce passion as soon as the heat breaks. When next we meet, I'll have a new piece for the brilliant choreographer Jenny Showalter, a scene from my opera The Bloody Chamber, some hot syllibi for a host of courses at City College, and a feature article on the great musical genius Carl Stalling for Symphony magaizine all put to bed.

See you all on the other side!

You still use staff... paper? Wow. Just... wow. I may jot down an idea on a pad once in a blue moon, but I'm pretty much composing in the computer all the time now. I only have pads around to give lessons on anymore.

For God's sake man, think of the trees! ;^)

Hucbald, whoever you are, you've just got plenty critical to say, don't you. These arguments--pad vs. computer; piano vs. desk--just leave me a little cold. I am sure your computer works just fine for you...me, I need the paper. Think of the Carbon Stamp from your electricity, man.

Daniel, you're far too sensitive. That was not a critical statement at all, but just an observation of my shock, as most composers I know use computers anymore.

And, my attempt at a bit of good natured humor was also evidently lost on you. Nothing I can do about that, I guess.

Daniel, I wasn't being critical, just making an observation of my amazement. Sorry the humorous intent was lost on you.
