a propos of nothing, music

the later I leave it

Rehearsal last night for Choral Society at the Lutheran church north of campus. Echoes are the lighting systems of live vocals. Suddenly, our volume is more than adequate. We are singing Britten, Brahms, and Schumann, with soloists.

I have also been reading Ellie Harrison’s Tea Blog. One sentence in response to each cup of tea for three years. Click “random.” For example: “There is no way I’d pay 10 Euros for 2 cheese rolls,” from May 7, 2007. Also: “The later I leave it the less worthwhile it’ll be going to the studio today,” from February 10, 2007. It’s a great stalling device.

After Harrison finished Tea Blog, a book came out about this and other projects of hers that involved large amounts of data, called Confessions of a Recovering Data Collector (she also did projects involving tracking food eaten and miles traveled.) www.ellieharrison.com.

Still working on Levis paper.
