November 18 - Eventual Theatre in the Round
Check out a DVC Music Theatre class in the afternoon (one never knows, re Goat Hall / San Francisco Cabaret Opera, and Opus Project),
after related inspection in Owen's class (preparing to substitute several days hence),
after a rather belated arrival at DVC (six phone calls placed to relate the situation, none successful), where the Theoreticans have heroically and patiently been awaiting -- thank you!
As reward: Seventh Chords in G, C, and F + excerpts from Philip Glass's Satyagraha and Akhnaten as Dictation / Board-Harmony...
the morning commute, one of the most chequered in recent memory, due to freeway standstill --
diverting first south on Peabody to more congestion,
then reversing course northward, westward, ultimately southward,
Pleasants Valley, and
Cherry Glen: ultimately,
back on course beyond North Texas to
Homeward sans incident, a gathering of the video tribes at the local biblotheque,
then taking in the first amazing one, over composition for page 48 Double Piano Concerto ("Fellow Travellers"): III. Also begin score study of Bela Bartok's Duke Bluebeard's Castle: Door 5, with page 1.
