December 15 - Talis-manic

Take in Peter Jackson's latest accelerated, expansive spin on J.R.R. Tolkien in a lovely night with Harriet,

after a recuperative day at home (H out and about at times), working on Opus 12 and composing page 12 of The Decameron - Fourth Day: II, part of this over

nostalgic videos in the early evening.

Quite late, begin Mandela Mandala, Op. 221, with I. Early Life -- a sound-file collision, with maximum echo and reverb, of an Afrikaans folk song and the Ali Akbar Khan / Yehudi Menuhin Introduction to Indian Music.
