You Need Jesus on Your Side - Deacon A. Wilson [from Goodbye Babylon]

each phrase in verse or chorus is a vector of rhetoric, preaching in the structure of preaching

Footnote to Howl - Allen Ginsburg [from Holy Soul Jelly Roll]

hideous human angel ho(w)ly the fourth dimension kindness of the soul

Variations for Orchestra - Elliott Carter - Chicago Symphony Orchestra, James Levine

films projected on all the walls around us
but not always on all or more than one
we seek out wheretoward to attend
balancing systems of rhetorical affect
with systems of pitch

as rhetorical affect is used to clarify the pitch
the patterns of rhetorical differentiation are exploited with the hard edged systemic rigor image

to keep it civilized

the actual facts of the system
are so many red herrings

Soft Winds - Oscar Peterson, N. H. Orsted-Pedersen, Louis Hayes [from The Great Connection]

playing the recognizableness of a tone
oh that's this
knows he's on to something
but doesn't allow much high art pretension to show

Trust Your Mechanic - Dead Kennedys [from Plastic Surgery Disasters - In God We Trust]

not a happy surfer's surf rock wave
rather a rocket car g-forced blubber face

Banned Rehearsal 83 - Karen Eisenbrey (Meyer), Keith Eisenbrey, Neal Kosály-Meyer [May 1986]

soft ball
some background noise
like a distant subaquiescent engine
softball game
repetition brings comfort
from this stability
we make inquiries
kitchen vicinity acoustic
running water
harmonica and softball shaped clay ocarina
proximity effect as improvised compositional device
at the half house pushing to 100
my tub filling in a microphoned house
running water to which we warble
mitt glove!
sneaks upon one in two
Karen to be always being present as transparent image of presence

all oc
oc mit

improvisation as conceptual multimodular composition thinking
bathtub clangy delight
Neal supplies the "the"
article to which the all is applied
and why

among our finer moments even though talking in it
extraordinarily focused on its soundworld
one channel is where Neal goes to play by himself
a guitar chord plucked?
NO! clavichord tangented
a new sound

Fear Bitterness and Hatred - The Young Fresh Fellows [from Electric Bird Digest]

67ish mini big guitar

"...woe my road is spoken..." 060604B - Keith Eisenbrey

string quartet for robot string quartet
getting there

Dark Star - Youth Rescue Mission [from Youth Rescue Mission]

grownup song
nicely layered backing vocals

Something of Mine - St. Rage [Karen Eisenbrey and Neal Kosály-Meyer vocals and instrumentals, recorded and produced by Keith Eisenbrey - April 2016]

in a can luscious

Concerto in G BWV 1049 - J.S. Bach - New London Consort, Philip Pickett

spendthrift rubato
if you want it straight go down the street
3 magic strokes and they appear
lofted free
shadow lines scribble and scribble cleared outside
extra dry tremolo shiver guiro

Finaletto "Di si felice innesto serbiam memoria eterna" - Rossini - Failoni Chamber Orchestra (Budapest), William Humburg, Roberto Servile, Sonia Ganassi, Ramon Vargas, Angelo Romero, Franco de Grandis, Hungarian Radio Chorus [from The Barber of Seville (Highlights)]

over before you know it
time to hit the road

Grosse Fuge in B-flat op. 133 - Beethoven - Alban Berg Quartett

tries an ill-fitting subject on for several sizes
various success
fugue and continuous granular variations
it will never fit
none of it

Trio in E minor op. 114 - Brahms - Walter Barylli, violin; Franz Koch, horn; Franz Holetchek, piano

clearly, this was ripped from vinyl, but by whom?

single thread music
3 distinctly produced sounds become one melodic thread

Your Enemy Cannot Harm You (But Watch Your Close Friend) - Edward W. Clayborn [from Goodbye Babylon]

replacement of (words) by (fancily vibratoed high guitar)
rather a bleak sermon

Pent-Up House (excerpt) - Sonny Rollins [from The Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz]

head repeat serves a stabilizing function like binary form repeats in classical
especially as here where the phrases skew off meter

Visions of Johanna - Bob Dylan [from Biograph]

cultural imprint
his luck and talent and skill to have hit upon a rubric in which any can find themselves

until you step back a tidge

Just Squeeze Me - Oscar Peterson, N. H. Orsted-Pedersen, Louis Hayes [from The Great Connection]

differentiates threads of tune by how they hang in the swing

Log P - Keith Eisenbrey, Neal Kosály-Meyer [November 1981]

keyboard dueting
perhaps too compatico
nice vibrato on the stop tones though

Adeste Fidelis - London Symphony Orchestra, et al [from Listen To The Joy]

I hope they all got paid.

In Session at the Tintinabulary

Gradus 341 - Neal Kosály-Meyer
