I received a few things in the mail today. A disappointingly limited selection of my own compositions — lots of things from my third year compositions, but absolutely nothing from my second year, which means that when my box of audio tapes were turfed last year, the recordings of my earliest compositions were utterly lost — as well as the last issue of InterZone (but not the new one) and finally, a very dated issue of Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet along with Ray Vukcevich’s Meet Me in the Moon Room from Small Beer Press.
It’s not as weird as it originally seemed. I opened the Priority mail envelope and saw that there was a second one inside, both addresses on it unfamiliar to me. But then when I opened that, I realized it was a book and magazine. But one I hadn’t ordered one myself.
I have a vague suspicion, and if I had to guess, I know who I’d name first, but I’d rather ye step forward. Anyone? I’d like to thank you.
Right, I gotta go move the last few things down the hall, and do some more unpacking.
Expect recordings of my (somewhat ponderous) 3rd year recital compositions and performances to be added to the site soon. And maybe I’ll even find a way to snag a recording of two performances I REALLY want from video… the quality will suck, but a recording is a recording. (Or maybe I’ll program the good bits in MIDI since Lime will have an electric piano with MIDI capabilities soon. Anything better than Finale these days in terms of notation software? I’m sure there’s nothing in Linux at all… sigh. And I’m getting the urge to rework that first major composition — the minimalist guitar-and-two-pianos thing — for two pianos and string quartet.)
