Watching people get their teeth extracted, due to decay caused by too many sweets, no dental hygiene, et-cetera. Then, the commercials. There are commercials on YouTube if you are not one to pay to have them removed like stains of sin...almost always regret. The commercials of people peddling their "music" is disappointing. I hate the lack of original sound creation. Why does everything have to be with baggage now? I do not care for your story, just your music, and your compositions.
I was told about someone who was on "The Voice" and how the production group just begs and is basically only interested with people that have a story of pain, or struggle, or suffering, or redemption, or benevolence, or loss....whatever, it may be, the foundation of the show isn't music, it is only to pull at heart strings to get that cash flowing. Per usual, I am not criticizing, this is an observation. There are many talented and trained people that have advanced far on that progrum. (I meant to spell it that way) Yet, the trained folk are released if they don't have something to bellyache about. I'd do it too. Cash talks...always.
"Black Velvet Soul" (Part 1) - this is also the theme to one of the John Waters films. I thought it may be fun to do in a medley of some other Waters movies musical clippings.
"An Angel is Love" - I believe that this was published onced. (Yes, I meant to add the d) This song is perhaps by Bob Crewe, and is from the movie Barbarella. It could be by Charles Fox, as the theme is, though, I don't know, and I don't want to do that right now. I like that Bob's group name was "The Bob Crewe Generation" and then there is "The Glitterhouse." What stunning musical group names. The music from "Barbarella" is generous and groovy and very fulfilling to the ear in the realms of symphonic movie psychedelia. A beautiful mix.
"Theme from Theater of Blood" by Michael J. Lewis - my favorite Vincent Price film...tres camp. The theme is so beautiful and short enough that one could do many Baroque treatments with, and romantic philandering with. Makes me want to get out ye olde' lute. I like to pronounce lute like "Leywt" like "...Orpheus with his lute.." my favorite treatment of that text is William Schuman's treatment of it. I love to say "treatment." My favorite recording is by the holy Robert White.
Bach: Partita V: Praeludium
Practiced that for a while- it's the postlude this coming Sunday.
This morning, we had a recording session for a progrum that we will do in a few weeks.
Henry is snoring. I have made him walk a little today on foot- he is definitely preferring his buggy.
