Snow on the Seventeenth

Snow on the Seventeenth

I meant to post this yesterday, and now I’m feeling pretty bad about forgetting. This is an electronic piece that I wrote two years ago that appears on den gen using Jesse Fox’s “glovegrain” synthesizer patch.

Some people tell me they can make out the voice, but for those who can’t it’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. giving his “I have a dream” speech. Dr. King is one of my great heroes, as corny and cliche as that sounds. And of course I should have spent yesterday reflecting on late 20th-century American History instead of reading about Balinese Gamelan music all day, but such is the occasional tunnel-vision of the academic…

I made a video to accompany this piece, and I’ll see if I can get that uploaded in the next week.
