Dear all

I am on best terms with our good Kate from the windy city of Chicago where the blues was re-invented but this time I have to complain for I do not agree.

Even failed musos like me (let alone those who have the knowledge) will tell you that this app is a mere toy. Might be fun for a while, but you will loose your interest pretty soon.

Kate, I am awfully sorry, but if I would want something for a "live remix" or alteration I'd probably look at summet else. My fellow failed musos will probably agree if I just mention Spectrasonics Ommnisphere for the PC plus that iPad app called Orb. (me wants Ommnisphere).

There have been attempts to make it possible to "remix" Gouldiana, notably years ago for the intro to Idea Of North on that infamous "interactive CD-ROM" that never saw the light of day (or only on bootlegs) so there are possibilities.

As for the article I stopped reading when I spotted the word "Genius". When oh when will newsies STOP using the words "Genius" and GG in one sentence ? 

per definition the idea of "Genius" philosophically cannot exist and the idea of the absolutely overrated hagiography (Mary, I checked) to the point of Our St. Glenn Of Uptergrove, Holder Of The Low Chair, Patron of ye singers and hummers under showers and baths, defender of the arpeggio, may he never use a pedal, but, alas he has left the building eternally  is still in the mind of critics, writers, newsies fans strikes one as a bit silly these days. 

Alas, this is where the money's in. And those of you who have read Canticle For Leibowitz might know how Hagiography can go wrong…but I digress.

do we have any news on the Mozart CD/DVD front ?

Pat, rambling, sorry again to Kate, thinking about Spectrasnoics….
