Hi Bill ! I haven't heard Tehillim in a while!
I had it on cassette, but the quality was bad - I usually listened to the version I taped off of WNYC. #HomeTapingIsKillingMusic
Avatar 12:10pm Bill Mac:

Hey WH I've been wanting to play a some Steve Reich the last couple times I was out here. I picked up on this one a couple weeks back. Nice texture doncha think?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, bilB. Big thumbs-up for reaching it to your 60th birthday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Ken From Hyde Park:

"Bill" Stupid autocorrect!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm fred:

Great pick Bill! I like Reich's more vocal works just as much as his early phase pieces. I already booked a ticket to a dance show in December with an ensemble playing Music for 18 musicians, which I love
Avatar 12:14pm Bill Mac:

Thanks Ken but the real question is why bilb?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm melinda:

Hi all, for once I'm not taking a nap at noon.

The man who makes a beast of himself by forgetting his thumbs loses the pain of effectively raking leaves.

Hello, Bill @ +60, and Zzzzzzeroheads the world over.
Avatar 12:16pm Bill Mac:

We should treat ourselves to these kinds of shows more often. The closest we got to this was seein Glass and Kronos doing an original Dracula soundtrack. Good stuff.

Mel & Sem! Here we go!!!!
Avatar 12:18pm Sem:

Noon nap? I like your style, melinda.

I typed "bil" and then Android showed "Bill" and I clicked it without looking. Can't trust a computer, I guess.

Welcome to the 60s! 60 is the new 40, which is the new 20. I guess.
WFMU is there already.
Time for some new-age music, I guess!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Stanley:

Sem, that thong thang is the grossest thing I've seen in a long time.
Avatar 12:44pm Sem:

Likewise, a nasty bit of business. But, you know, in memory of ratty, and all he stood for.
Avatar 12:45pm V Priceless:

haha @ fish! Thanks for selecting 'dependable' vs. 'predictable'! I have to give thanks and praise to my musical heroes, ya know?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm coelacanth∅:

that was the only word came to mind!
-whenever AC or Bowie comes on when you're not on the comment board i wonder where you are; and more often than not you're suddenly there!
it's great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm fred:

Cool that you played that Littlemore/Muller track. Thierry had 500 printed for record store day, and he needed to sell 300 to break even. He sold 23
Avatar 12:52pm Bill Mac:

Aaargh, my computer swhile I was playing spun out whilst playing Sharks. Apologies. Hey whatever it takes to support Thierry, Fred.

Happy b-day, Big B!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02pm fred:

Looks like there be a dance performance from my fave choreographer in NYC in October: armoryonpark.org...
Looks crazy expensive though. But my favorite dancer -- Cynthia Loemij -- might be featured. I'd pay that inflated price to see her, but not the plane ticket
