Saturday, 6 May 2017

my show on may 3 consisted of a handful of minimalist organ pieces as well as the haikus they inspired me to write. although inspired may be too strong a word. said musical pieces and haikus are below:

terry riley - desert of ice (shri camel)

a desert of ice
bleak, beautiful, dry and cold
riley gives me chills

philip glass - etoile polaire - ange des orages (analog)

shards of glass, half-full
of kaleidoscopic storms
carnival in space
meredith monk - turtle dreams (waltz) (turtle dreams)

four organists play
so slow, forget it's a waltz
count voices in threes

steve reich with michael tilson-thomas, ralph grierson & roger kellaway (plus tom raney on maracas) - reich: four organs (stravinsky, cage & reich)

maracas insist
keyboardists stagger their stabs
my organs awash

philip jeck - stops (spire: organ works past, present & future)

crusted abrasions
do they really come from pipes?
soon, the organ stops
