Finnegans Wake Chapter 6 (start) - James Joyce - Neal Kosály-Meyer [December 2019]
ceremonious, stately :: so
things to eat and
things to drink
looked earish with his eyes shut
The small functional words
parts of speech
are left alone for the most part.
The multisyllablical words or polyrunic single pulse words are taken with more license.
A man is spread out among the city
sounds like a rude word . . .
Strawberry Fields Forever Take 7 and Edit Piece - The Beatles [from Beatles Anthology, volume 2]
extended version for maximum weirdness trademark
We've Got a Bigger Problem Now - Dead Kennedys [from Plastic Surgery Disasters / In God We Trust]
under the bottom of it
sneer would be satire
the most imaginative song on the album so far I think
Banned Rehearsal 106 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Aaron Keyt [December 1986]
bells and small whistle bamboo or tin and clacking as a backing
composing: the art of changing one's tune
an aspect of recorded sound worth more careful attention: the recorded image of the size of the places in which these sounds abide
Aaron and I, singing, find places to unsettle our intonation
we do not blend
more cowbell than many musics dream of
cowbells in a big way
We're so glad.
organized sound, as a concept, presupposes an organizer [?]
at one end or another
beta rhythm sets in
model airplane motor
turns over now
not exactly a wake
nor a sleep
it continues long into sleep
The second simultaneity: a dissonance off the get go that no amount of Satieesquery nor warmth can resolve.
pebble in a shoe
thorn in a side
eagle in a liver
Gradus 108 - Neal Kosály-Meyer [November 2006]
Each A-nat of these six A-nats foliates or refracts into acoustic's proper parts. One can trace a hocketish tune among those proper parts on one or more of each of those six A-nats. Is there a downwardgoing quality to any of those proper parts' sequence upon time imparted only by the downwardgoing quality in some sequential atom of the music, otherwise irrespective of the more literal motion among their own pitches, arising from the respective roots of foliations. But these must be sought out.
My role: I am its conceptual soundboard.
(I've heard it all) :: so far
In resonating space do partials also foliate, fractal-like?
Always two there are, the player and the listener? but which is which and why?
Can't Keep - Eddie Vedder [from Ukulele Songs]
That is a fine sounding ukulele. It is interesting how the vocal part, at the start of each verse, starts right there in the room with you, then sets off somewhere to howl at the moons.
Shucking Corn - Keith Eisenbrey [August 2006]
I recorded the squeaky kiss sound of it.
How Still My Love (alternate version) - Stevie Nicks [from Bella Donna]
throwing curses around: you won't forget me
this song (and others of hers) go around in a circle
never get up and be gone
Raise Your Hand - Bruce Springsteen [from Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band Live 1975-85]
I'm curious as to what kind of preaching he had heard. He picked something up somewhere.
"Mrs. Ramsay rose. Lily rose." - Keith Eisenbrey - Keith Eisenbrey [recorded at University Temple United Methodist Church, Seattle, February 2002]
The beginnings of things abrade upon the ends of previous things. Surely among the prettiest of my compositions.
Serenade in E Major - Antonín Leopold Dvořák [from Naxos The Very Best of Dvorak]
firmly within the ritual of tripartite ABA Menuet Trio Menuet land
The end of a piece must take great care to not intrude too rudely upon the beginning of after.

Banned Rehearsal 800 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Anna K, Steve Kennedy, Aaron Keyt, Neal Kosály-Meyer [October 2011]
recorded on the 25th Anniversary of Karen's and my wedding rehearsal dinner -pizza and beer
a stroll through a soundmake
regions of events
an accumulating pool of announcement
as Neal counts up to us
All the critters celebrate and lift a song.
Energy envelope waves pass or are passed through.
Some of our former noise sloshes around at the bottom of the pool.
Groundhog Day - Three Fingers [from Three Songs]
Everybody's groundhog day over and over
working isn't fun but tacobell ain't free

Sonata in D minor, K. 64 - Domenico Scarlatti - Pieter-Jan Belder
La de Chamlay - Jacques DuPhly - Christophe Rousset
Ben's phone booths metaphor :: evidence of, or support for oppression. Or nostalgia.
Finnegans Wake Chapter 6 (continuation one) - James Joyce - Neal Kosály-Meyer [December 2019]
... sounds like a rude word
one analytic performance might simply be to explode the paragraphs out onto the page in pseudoverse.
The old stock collar is coming back.
Answer: Finn MacCool!
Two: Answer: a song
Three: which title? thine obesity.
Four: What Irish 6 letter 2 syllables. Harmonize your responses in the ribs of your resistance.
No-one expects the Irish Inquisition.
Five . . .

Gradus 360 - Neal Kosály-Meyer
A D then a D and an E
pitch matching: Does the pitch of a note necessarily match the pitch of the reverberating harp resonance arising out of that note? Of course not!
3rd D down, and 1st E down: 26 semitones - midway between is a note D-sharp/E-flat not yet in the sequence.
from all that is the yet understanding
not for this is not done call it which worksfancies of things but inasmuch as
was alarmed to be walking barefoot
but the lion turned away
