Second coming?

Well, you know what they say, it's all over when...

Actually, the above is from the cover of a piece of music for choir called "The Monotone Angel", where the solo line is the voice of an angel who try as she might, can only sing one pitch. The rest of the choir harmonizes with this line... quite an interesting idea. I wish that most of us musicians today had the kind of skills they had a century ago, where reading music was just that: reading a new score and hearing the whole thing in one's head. I suppose singers and composers should still have a bit more of that ability, but us instrumentalists are more often than not woefully lacking in that department.

For some reason, every time I log in to blog, instead of "Old Blogger", I see "Old Bugger". Haiyo.

old bugger...

not sure whether to laugh, cry or both

:P

still the idea of single pitch & rest build around it is intriguing
