  10:41pm drew in carroll gardens:

John Tavener?
  10:42pm Alias Christus:

Was it from a Mass?
  10:43pm bethany:

Drew, you're close with your first inclination. The composer is English. But that's all I'm going to say. Will play again later in the show.
  10:43pm buckingham:

i would say like, Mauchaut, but it sound(ed)s maybe a little more dynamic or modern
  10:45pm Knit Brows:

The problem is anyone in the 20th/2ist century can write in an earlier style for a given purpose...
  10:46pm coalhard:

is his first name morten?
  10:48pm drew in carroll gardens:

i used to be a boy chorister a l o n g time ago.....
  10:49pm bethany:

  11:13pm drew in carroll gardens:

  11:15pm G:

This *is* a great Shost. piece. Period.
  11:19pm drew in carroll gardens:

  11:21pm coalhard:

It was a popculture reference --

  11:32pm zachary:

This Schaefer piece is lulling me into a trance and I'm willingly following.
  11:33pm Jandek:

Hey Janek, I copyrighted my name and variants years back. Expect a letter from Corwood.
  11:33pm drew in carroll gardens:

apropos of nothing in particular, the last survivor of the Titanic died today....
  11:35pm G:

She was 9 weeks old at that time, yep.
  11:37pm Shroud:

A Child Survivor.....
  11:39pm drew in carroll gardens:

what beautiful heart-felt music....
  11:40pm bethany:

Whoa, Drew. You're on some kind of sublime frequency tonight, because (as you will soon find out) your reference to the Titanic isn't apropos of nothing in particular.

Note to all: that is a big hint to the mystery of the evening. A big hint if not a dead giveaway.
  11:45pm drew in carroll gardens:

thanks, kiddo! playing all those Tibetan instruments is doin' something to/for me....
  11:47pm coalhard:

FANTASTIC SHOW---loved every minute--will never miss again!!!!thanks bethany

  11:53pm coalhard:

Hanne Hukkelberg Crack Blood from a Stone Nettwerk

I love this!
  12:02am Jon:

  11:33am Paul Hubert:

I don't know if the Janek Schaefer installation made it across the Atlantic. I was fortunate to see it in Huddersfield in 2007 and spent quite a lot of time with it, as did some other people. It raised some interesting questions about music and sound art. The excerpt was very evocative, although I still haven't decided if it belongs amongst music!
