Turning 100...

One hundred posts here at Chez Doubtful ... If you're in the mood for something interesting, please watch the following and see what you think (be warned that it's 18 minutes long). I think it's fascinating, and more information can be found here. (The Dailymotion video isn't as good as the one found at the link, but that video wouldn't embed properly, and the YouTube videos have an annoying habit of putting the title onscreen, thus spoiling any surprise.)

I'm stunned I've made it this far!

Thank you for the interesting moments you have provided. Here's to the next one hundred posts!

Thanks, Claudia. But until I shake off this blasted head & chest cold that I've had for the last week, I won't be posting much! On an unrelated topic, I don't know if you're aware of her, but the very interesting composer/sound artist Maryanne Amacher died recently. I have her two releases and they are incredible. More info here: http://classicaldrone.blogspot.com/2009/10/maryanne-amacher-1943-2009.html
RIP.

(RIP isn't part of the web address, by the way...)

Thanks for the link. Maryanne Amacher was an extraordinary human being! Classical Drone sends us to Kyle Gann where I read a testimony of Micah Silver describing her lifework. Great that a few people recognised her genius. But the world, and official institutions, are always too late to care, in tangible ways, for the unique contributions of explorator artists. I don't have the necessary software to listen to excerpts of Day Trip. I'll see if I can get one of her releases.

It bugs and depresses me that (like Mozart) Maryanne Amacher lived and died poor. It uplifts me that (like Mozart) her human spirit never gave up in her search for the perfection and purity of her artwork.RIP.

Take care D.E. There's a nasty flu going around the world. All we hear about, in Toronto, is proper vaccination. I hope it's available where you are. All the best!
