THE PATH OF TOTALITY! that's the name of the diagonal zone.
Avatar 10:15am V Priceless:

hmm....looks like there's a version of 'Discreet Music' by Toronto classical ensemble Contact - have you heard this, KG? Was this one of the ones you mentioned? Must explore...
Avatar 10:16am Kurt Gottschalk:

ah, yes, that's the one i couldn't think of. quite nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17am Webhamster Henry:

I was wondring where the violin fit in with this:

Of particular note is the premiere recording of the title track, a major new composition from Michael Harrison, which is scored for violin with 13 pre-recorded tracks and computer generated sine tones. The work is composed of nine constellations of complex just intonation harmonies that gradually shift and evolve over time.
Avatar 10:19am Kurt Gottschalk:

thanks for the annotation, ham-hen!
Avatar 10:20am Kurt Gottschalk:

laura's face is making an eclipse in the gif. (sarah's i'm too scared to talk about.)
  10:24am JakeGould:

Made this joke last night on Evan’s playlist but will share it here as well: The “Path of Totality” is the one that’s made at a party when someone makes a desperate dash for the bathroom.
Avatar 10:26am V Priceless:

@ Kurt: I assume you're hip to Frost's "Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier" book release on October 31, yes?

I was getting a really low note after the end of that section ... which turned out to have come from an idling truck outside!
Avatar 10:29am Kurt Gottschalk:

  10:35am Alex In Illinois:

I was thinking of heading south to Marion Illinois to see it, but even there it will be crowded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36am Webhamster Henry:

I thought you were going to play that YouTube Musical analysis of "Total Eclipse of the Heart".
Avatar 10:40am Kurt Gottschalk:

alex, where in illinois are you?

webham, i can't play that more than once on the air.
  10:58am Alex In Illinois:

Normally, I am in the Chicago area. That's where I am now.

It would be maybe a 5 hour drive to any place in the total eclipse zone
