IT IS FINALLY DONE.

Archive, which I wrote in 2011, has finally got all the instruments on it. My beautiful beautiful friends, none of whom charged me what they're worth, are the chamber orchestra:

Kyra Davies, violins
Rainey Weber, viola
Brent Selby, cello
Becky Tobin, clarinet
Michael Garman, bass clarinet
Joelle Wagner, bassoon
Ben Jaber, French horn

And I sing, play piano and bass. If you feel like supporting this kind of attempt from me (and the beautiful beautiful friends who collaborated on it with me), you can pay me a dollar for a high-quality mp3 here:

Otherwise, just go listen to it on soundcloud:

THEY SOUND LIKE CANDY MADE OF BUTTER AND LIGHT OMG

IT IS FINALLY DONE

Watching Bryan practice reminds me of all the seemingly excessive excellence I ascribe to the people closest to me in my life. Because of whatever default misanthropy I harbor, I assume I've invented the extreme qualities of my friends, and then when close interactions resume I am pleasantly surprised that I didn't. He's hard to talk to, yes, and occasionally oblivious in surprising areas, but he's smarter than me in ways that are usually inspiring rather than discouraging, and it requires no little suspension of disbelief for me to watch him play, even casually, without framing it in terms of elven elegance or angelic grace.

this turned into a little bit of an egotistical essay... rant... thing...  )

I just sort of accidentally wrote a song to most of the text of Ravel's 4th Greek Song. I guess the poet is Michel Dimitri Calvocoressi for the French, though I suspect somebody else wrote the Greek. Whatever, it apparently needed to be in French. As soon as I can play it for myself, I'll record it.
