The Bliss may have been 'old fashioned' in sentiment - but really liked how deftly & powerfully he wrote to & wielded the range of the orchestra to paint his picture.

Reminded of the PipeDreams program! : pipedreams.publicradio.org ...Hadn't thot of it in some time! Probably consider it 'unadventurous' - but yerknow - instrument...

got 2 windows open for this,
(by accident)
about a 2 second delay
making this as interesting as your talk was too !
drummer girl:

feeling high saturation of this piece of Meditations by Messiean

@RRRN63 - A station near here plays the Pipe Dreams show on Sunday nights. I catch it occasionally.

@genericPlacebo, wish I could take credit for a 2 second overlap delay, but alas...on Stochastic Hit Parade I used to pull all kind of things like that; I think the most fun was on the winter solstice where I played music that increased in duration gradually for the first half...then processed it and played it backwards for the second half - mic breaks and all
