NaBloPoMo Day 11!
Another quick post, while the follow-up to yesterday percolates…
It’s hard to believe it, but it’s been nearly a year since McDoc and I arrived in Detroit. One of the first things we discovered after arriving here was a music festival put on by the Detroit Symphony called 8 Days in June. It was a very exciting and ambitious series, and we’re looking forward to this year’s version.
On of the pieces I’m especially looking forward to hearing is the Turangalîla-Symphonie by Olivier Messiaen. For many reasons, but for now I’ll just mention that the piece features an early electronic instrument called the ondes Martenot, which is sort of a cousin to the Theremin. And regular readers might know why that’s of interest to me! 🙂
