Good morning Bob, Fred, Mary, Stefy, Pat, Jason, Brad, Mary Jo and
everyone else interested in Glenn Gould's classic radio documentaries.
I think all of us would like to have a transcript of the entire Solitude
Trilogy (Brad - you did an excellent review on the Quiet in the Land - does
that transcript exist?]
What I would like to do, as a research project, is get the following
software (see link) Dragon Speech/Speak (my brother has the software, so I will
prepare him his favorite dinner!)
and see if it can capture and transcribe the contrapuntal radio dialog of
IoN - it would be interesting to see the true interleaving of each speaker's
words (and see if the software has the capacity to do so) - and grasp a
little more dimensionality on Glenn Gould's "music".
For our new F_Minor members - if you haven't heard GG's radio
documentaries, they are available (for sale of course) !

Apparently there is a stage play in french by a bloke called Benoit Giros
based on IoN, which I reckon is a very clever idea.
Google is not my friend in this case, this is the only source I found.
anybody know more about this project or the author ?
Bob, maybe you can pass these links on to your m8 in France, if this is
real thing there must be a transcript in french available ! And before
Scarlatti rants again, in english too !
