action shots of writing
Steve Reich, Triple Quartet (2005, Rhapsody)
Terry Riley, Autodreamographical Tales (2010, Rhapsody)
I'm on a busy-busy minimalism jag today; Steve Reich might make the all-time greatest get-things-done music there is
♫ Steve Reich & Musicians, “Tokyo/Vermont Counterpoint” (Rhapsody)
while this new Terry Riley joint is stop-the-presses weird, like a Robert Wyatt record gone loose-er.
♫ Terry Riley, “The Miracle” (Rhapsody)
Earlier today I was interviewed for a student paper about a writing workshop I'm conducting in a couple a weeks, which was weird because I am usually on the other end of that process. I stayed true to interview subject form by missing the first appointed interview time and running late for the second. There is a very nice photographer taking "action shots" of me typing right as I type this. She wants action shots of writing. I highlighted some text for her.
I should have insisted they use one of the pics above, found while leafing through a book titled New Dimensions in Paper Craft (1969, Amazon).
