Cage w. Moe

(and I am indebed-tah to The Wedge and a KFJC guy Thursday named Max Levell for this itemizer)

So, John Cage is the guy who brought our ears training to the ambient sound in a room and for example when Henry Butler and Amy Denio played a gallery space in Oakland there was some talk about whether to leave the door open or not because of street noise and I always say “noise” and also when I did a few shows and relevantly here Esbjorn Svensson Trio (EST) and Ethan Iverson at a little now defunct now office space for real estate Moloch Moloch Molochs at corner of Hamilton and Alma (means, ironcially “soul”) the trian would be trying to go by and disruffle us, but I like that, a wee b it, and here is I’m guessing a pretty good mediaion of the cage 4 33 thingy:

whereas this is a still from a local artist named Moe STaino or something of the MoeKestra or something — but not the Enorchestra– again, don’t blame me thank Wedge. Moe! Staiano.

i am fixing to produce a piano series in palo alto and will take it under advisement.
there was a guy here who had about 50 pianos then passed away and maybe he had a couple wreckers. Bill Armstrong. When you booked a show into the Cubberley Center you had to contract him to move the piano from a classroom to the stage (Eigsti, Hurt, Perez, Rachel Z, Perkins, Butler, Medeski et cetera)
I remember wanting to screen Stevenson Palfi film in his honor.
what about a four-hand (two sledge hammer) version of Moe’s mess?
maybe in honor of Slud Allen (former baseball star, father of Terry Allen)
maybe I took a shot to the bean…a little (too much) chin music
although I should not joke about CTE or what the wifey TMT called PBI or something

andand (but not anand although it would be great to have he great anand patwadharan pop up to say “you know nothing of my work!”
hi amy.
i namechecked you in a memoir about the time you and henry butler played a gallery in oakland and there was some discussion about whether to leave door open or closed as show began. I always vote “open” in that the ambient noise adds to the show. Plus people might wander by and be drawn in like to a syren. (or course in Oakland there is also “siren” which is a hoarse of a different colon).

i still think the Djerassi people should book or regale you based on your mutual Billy Tipton conncection.

25 years of not being arrested or stabbed or bankrupt or back-broke or broke-back inthe music busy-ness. But mostly idle last copule years while tending to or joust worrying about my aging parents.

and I should probably quit digging but: I wrote to someone recently this morning via my handheld that Ethan Iverson could do a tour sponsored by Verizon in which he played the Goldberg Variations. (“Iverson/Verizon/Variations”)

And i’m not saying I am fixing pianos but i’m also not thinking too hard about the guy at local nearby world class think-tank whose work Fields worker was something about two balls bouncing around a triangle and why in some points it touches more than the rest while other parts it touches less so. Do the Math.
