will never learn.
[That must do, 'cause otherwise ...]
everyone knows yesterday, September 5th, was 'Changing of the Tone' in Halberstadt. Just
in case you happened not to be amongst those connoisseurs in St Burchardi who all excitedly earwitnessed the
thrilling moment, and therefore feel inconsolable: the spheric sound
will not change until February 5th, 2022.
So when arriving on February 4th you will be able to kill two b ... ahem ... to hear two tones of the John-Cage-project ORGAN² ASLSP within 24 hours.
Well, and in
case you can't get enough, what about quickly booking one of the remaining 620
years and get your name "eternised" on a metal plate. Costs only 1200 Euro.
As mentioned twelve years ago, personally, I intended to book the year 2525, but then I thought I should retreat in favour of Zager and Evans. Since I have been ranging between 2632 and 2222, but right now I think I shall ask them to offer 2641. I'd really like listening to the silence, after all the noise.
In honour of John Cage I have been writing this post, as I did in 2008, if not as slowly as possible, at least very very slowly.
And I am quite sure that not only those amongst you who can't read fast will appreciate my gesture.
PPS: For those who wish to buy one or more of the words written above: There will soon be a price-list available.
PPPS: Solvent Omnium-lovers who wish to book one or more posts to be published from October onwards, with immediate effect can offer their bids. Just don't be shy - bid high.
