...hey!: it *is* called 'Time Transcending'...

I almost drove under a lowering railroad barrier to get home for this show. Hit the Webstream seconds before it started!
Avatar Mon. 7/21/14 8:15pm ranjit:

wow, you weren't kidding about the repeating notes!
  Mon. 7/21/14 8:16pm Robert:

That's what you get when the pianist has a tremor.

Or is playing in the back of a pickup truck on a gravel road...

...interesting as precursor to modern electronic sturf (sequencers?) w/ lotsa repeating patterns all sorts - if that's not too obvious (& perhaps even so)...
Avatar Mon. 7/21/14 8:18pm ranjit:

I saw Vicki Chow playing a Tristan Perich piece last night - she was machinegunning notes even faster than this piece. For almost an hour!
  Mon. 7/21/14 8:19pm Robert:

Seriously, though, I wonder whether to do that you have to be able to move the finger that fast, or alternate adjacent fingers on the same key.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/21/14 8:20pm maestroso:

@Robert, alternate fingers is the way to go generally.
  Mon. 7/21/14 8:20pm Robert:

Years ago I wondered whether the background to "We Belong" was done manually or synthetically, with its rapid repeating notes.
  Mon. 7/21/14 8:21pm rynac:

How rare is it that the interpretation is better than the original?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/21/14 8:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...reminded (more 1st in this set) of Glass saying Ravi Shankar was a revelation when he told him that in Indian music every note gets equal emphasis...
  Mon. 7/21/14 8:26pm Robert:

Maybe Indians were used to composing for & playing instruments where it's hard to vary the emphasis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/21/14 8:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I dunno (?); the only time I fiddled w/ a sitar - it made my guitar seem a brick by comparison...maybe it's the trance/meditation tradition...
  Mon. 7/21/14 8:32pm Robert:

I know what you mean, Bethany. It's like applauding at a movie -- for who, the projectionist?
  Mon. 7/21/14 8:34pm Robert:

Actually for us listening to the radio or stream, it's like that all the time. It's not like I can get on here & give plaudits every time someone on WFMU pleases me, yet overall you people have brought me joy for years.

Avatar Mon. 7/21/14 8:51pm Bethany Ryker:

here, yes - and deep in the throes of updating playlist, had to take my eyes off the comments for a minute. Yes, sad news for sure. His music will live on!
  Mon. 7/21/14 8:54pm rynac:

The Ravel seems as fresh as it must have 100 years ago. an amazing piece.
  Mon. 7/21/14 8:56pm ccrides:

Thank you Bethany...I thought i was going crazy there...for a minute!!!...)O(...
