I have yet to hear the WFMU song on WFMU, which is really weird
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Guido from Cologne:

My mum used to ask me: "Do you really think this music is beautiful?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Scott Williams:

Greets, pals! @Guido, does she expect it to always have to be "beautiful"?

Hello Scott & nots Scotts!
Hey NGH,rsj,Guido fC!

I tried to answer with a question if she find's a thriller "beautiful"
she did not get it.

Oh no--"The Swarm" (1978) or even worse "The Bees" (1978) comes to WFMU!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

ESBed (!)

Where did such a swarm of honeybees come from? Dehydrated and confused swarm got lost away from clover and stuck in the city, where they stumbled into the station? Existential crisis indeed.

God, it was amazing they played Penderecki in TP! Quiite an episode!
Avatar 3:53pm northguineahills:

Didn't he name it after he composed it, as he couldn't think of anything else it would relate to?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Twin Peaks last night? Beware the Hobo Army!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Matt from Springfield:

"A threnody is a song, hymn or poem of mourning composed or performed as a memorial to a dead person. The term originates from the Greek word θρηνῳδία (threnoidia), from θρῆνος (threnos, "wailing") and ᾠδή (oide, "ode")...Synonyms include "dirge", "coronach", "lament" and "elegy". The Epitaphios Threnos is the lamentation chanted in the Eastern Orthodox Church on Holy Saturday."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Guido from Cologne:

what was the anecdote:
Penderecki developed a special kind of notation, because the coffee table he was working at was too small ... something like this.
Avatar 3:54pm Polyus:

The musical score was actually my favorite thing about Episode 8.
  3:54pm matt:

Best hour of tv there will ever be
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm The Oscar:

That was an astonishing episode of television. Also, in case anyone hasn't seen it, here's what the actor who plays The Woodsman does during the day: abrahamlincolnlives.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Matt from Springfield:

@NGH: "When he heard an actual performance, "I was struck by the emotional charge of the work... I searched for associations and, in the end, I decided to dedicate it to the Hiroshima victims". The piece tends to leave an impression both solemn and catastrophic, earning its classification as a threnody. On 12 October 1964, Penderecki wrote, "Let the Threnody express my firm belief that the sacrifice of Hiroshima will never be forgotten and lost."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

"In film, excerpts from Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima are used in Stanley Kubrick's 1980 adaptation of The Shining, Alfonso Cuarón's 2006 dystopian film Children of Men, and Wes Craven's 1991 film The People Under the Stairs. The piece was also used during a sequence depicting the Trinity nuclear test of 1945 in the limited event series Twin Peaks."

DUDE. Came back with late lunch to zee Penderecki... been in a huge mid-century-modern composer obsession for a while. Can't get enough o'this stuff.

What the what is a Threnody? I mean other than a song, hymn or poem of mourning composed or performed as a memorial to a dead person.

@Mister Dobalina, he's cued up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Matt from Springfield:

@Rev: The road to becoming a mid-century modern composer dog is tough at first, but he'll thank you later. Either that or he'll just keep barking and insist on a treat.
Avatar 4:14pm northguineahills:

@Matt: You missed a chance at using the adjective 'ruff'. Otherwise, perfect!

Episode 8 of TP made Episode 3 look like an episode of Blossom.

Ahhh… Thanks for the return to gentle strumming.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Matt from Springfield:

The return of gentle strumming on WFMU is a nice feel...and you have to treasure it, for it usually does not stay very long!

agreed! re: twin peaks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm The Oscar:

My dad walked me through the original run of TP when Bravo reran it in the late '90s, and I remember wondering what people made of it when it first aired. Now I know. Genuinely jaw-dropping stuff.
Avatar 4:43pm JakeGould:

Now Scott is making me want to watch “Twin Peaks”…
Avatar 4:44pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Holy crap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Stanley:

What the holy one just said
  4:47pm Anon:

Funny that you mention twin peaks. Someone giving Cooper cryptic advice mentions a "Richard and Linda" and this is what I immediately thought of when I heard the Thompsons song you played. I think the show has hijacked my subconcious.
Avatar 4:50pm northguineahills:

That's funny Anon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Scott Williams:

@Anon, oh wow... and I just realized that in that same scene, he says something about "4:30"! Weird....
