oh god here it comes
School just happened to me. Owch. So:
This is a concept guitar, by a man named Amit Zoran. Essentially, it provides a different resonating chamber for each string. I happen to think that’s a pretty mindbending idea, but that’s because I don’t usually think about acoustics and acoustic changeas a method of synthesis. Obviously, I spend too much time in front of my computer.
I went to see Oholibah and Her Lovers last night, an opera put on by a horde of people from the School of Music…but not the School of Music itself. Overheard politics aside, the “naked opera” was monumental in the very best sense of the word. The libretto was edited together from Old Testament, and the production as a whole worked out to a cross between Cecil B. DeMille and Wagner, complete with the Song of Soloman, Voice Of God, and a Cast Of Thousands. Wonderful stuff.
Finally, I’m playing at Hush on Thursday, January 31st, opening for Yoseff. You should come.
Oh oh! Chris Reiche dropped some artistic and ontological science today when he said that “We’re not modernism or post modernism or post-post-modernism any more. We’re at individualism now.” I’ll leave it as an exercise to the reader to work out what he means by that Zen little koan.
