"Well, Tyler the one single example of abusing classical music that I can remember with real disgust and anger most is the music of the rondo from Abdelazer by H. Purcell (not Britten's version of the current composition contest by Mike). This music…"

  • Notes about the “From 95 Poems” world premier video:

    Can I assume Joseph had a “complete” score in front of him? His voice is very good. (I can’t “judge” It always comes through clearly. (Were you recording the premier’s sound through a mixer board? While sometimes it clipped and got distorted (perhaps that was only on my end), it was really much cleaner than I’d expect from a straight video camera recording.)

    I don’t know cummings’ poems, but you really seem to have a knack for setting words/voice to music/atmospheric effects. I like this piece. I find myself coming back to is several times during the day – and I mean the whole thing not just bits and pieces; I’ve heard it 5-6 times through already.

    One of my favorite spots is at 6:22 – with the rush of sound and swelling of voice.

    I did find it hard to *watch* the piece because it was so “private” (only between Joseph and the recording -- and so I, as an audience, was not *involved* and, in fact, found watching it hard because I always look for the visual clues I expect to see from an orchestra/performers/conductor. Not that body language is present in such a piece as yours (though it might be).

    Several times (twice only?) I find the sounds on the recording intrusive. Maybe it’s just the first time I hear the mouth sounds or one other of the sounds.

    Overall, the piece (the three poems set) is very engaging. So much music of this “type” is too distancing for me. I’ve tried listening to Glass, Reich, etc., but while I may like some of the pieces, the overall style and content does not draw me in. Yours has a different effect on me (finally!).

    And I LOVE the ending (#62: “each luckiest of lucky days”). It’s captivating – and then it’s over. That kind of ending makes me long for more because it’s both un-final and puts a period on it nonetheless. The in-finality of the ending makes me re-think over all I’ve heard up to then, and THAT keeps me wanting more.

    P.S.: Thank you.
