    I always presume that classical musicians are already dead. I was surprised to find that Penderecki had been alive. He was 86 so he had had a pretty good innings ...

    Arvo Pärt is alive ... 84 years old ...

      The twitter account "Composers doing normal shit" is great for remembering that classical composers are just normal people. Very enjoyable seeing Stockhausen doing his gardening and Scriabin having a picnic and stuff. Was a picture of Penderecki on there just a week ago.

                (Very) Weirdly I decided on Monday to finally watch the documentary Still Bill, which I had been meaning to watch ever since it came out...

                Such a great man, such a great songwriter & performer, I am truly heartbroken.

                So much on youtube but if you haven't seen Still Bill, and you must, it's here...



                RIP Bill

                          Whether their passing is connected to the current pandemic, I don't know. I'm a bit squeamish and don't like to read the details, but the jazz world is losing too many... Ellis Marsalis (father of Branford and Wynton), Wallace Roney, Bucky Pizzareli and Hal Wilner.

                            Just discovered that Gabi Delgado of DAF died a few weeks ago, and am genuinely sad about it.
                            Best dancer ever, and seemed like a lovely, funny and very clever guy

                            "The German word for poetry, ‘Dichtung’, derives from the German word for dense and also means sealing. I think that is expressed very well. A lyric has to be dense, and denseness comes from reduction. When I say “I love you”, I do not have to say “I love you like a cloud in the sky over the green hills”. I just eliminate these embellishments and reduce it to the clear message, which is then strong, dense, and in the end more poetic."

                                My fave D.A.F track, can’t get enough of it, first heard on John Peel some time in the 90’s.
