May 4 - Seeing the Light

Another absurdly early rising, with music of the 20th and 21st Centuries for the St. Mary's consortium (including Alban Berg's Wozzeck: Act III, King Oliver's Dippermouth Blues, Joe Garland's In the Mood, music of John Cage (Jazz Study, Sonata V, and Concerto for Prepared Piano), and Roger Waters Shine On You Crazy Diamond III.

The Diablo Valley College Theoreticians receive two systems worth of Sting's King of Pain for dictiation, board harmony, and keyboard solfege before a late lunch at

Elephant Bar, grading Music Lit papers, then rendezvousing with the owners of latter for soundscapes re George Gershwin to Dmitri Shostakovich,






new assignment. Another bistro night with Doug and Owen, then through the

relevant neoned darkness to

pump out more orchestration of Creation: III (page 8) and composition for Vespers: VI Duo Seraphim (Part II) (6).
