My Brain Hurts

Which is why I won’t go into depth about this... this thing, by Anne Midgette of the Washington Post. She’s describing the music of Toru Takemitsu.

His music has an organic quality, a self-contained sense of being governed by its own forces, sometimes as hard to grasp or explain as sea foam...

Good luck with the grasping and subsequent explaining, Anne. I’m really pulling for you.

"Her unusual musical choices involve new and recent music"

Playing new and recent music is totally an unusual thing to do. Let's keep reinforcing that, shall we?

Yes, they shall. Sigh.

And, in all fairness, have you ever tried to grasp sea foam? It is characteristically ungraspable!

Anne Midgette is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

Immediately following the "new and recent," Midgette goes on to say that Midori has been playing Bach. I guess that's recent. It was also new at one time, I suppose.

Just a very confusing arrangement of thoughts in this one. My brain really kind of hurt.

Wait, new AND recent!?

She wants you to new your laryngopharynx and recent it too!

Like Jesus Christ turning water into wine, and John the Baptist turning palm fronds into righteous bud, so too does Sator Arepo turn
adjectives into verbs.
