My apologies to the reading several (to borrow Stephen Fry's phrase) about my lack of posts this week, but I've been so busy and disorganised (even for me) that I've had neither the time nor the enthusiasm to write anything new. But to make up for all that, here's something I found recently that's really interesting (and sheds light on a source of inspiration for a certain T. Gilliam). Enjoy!
For those of you interested in Irish contemporary music, the Ergodos Festival of New Music started last night in Dublin and runs all week there. There's a whole heap of good stuff being performed, so if, unlike me, you live in Dublin and have a few free nights, do your bit for music and support your local composer! I'm going to try to get to some of the performances later in the week (he said in the spirit of naive optimism). More information here.
