The Seven Trumpets are Sounding!

Bernard Holland singing the praises of Iannis Xenakis, the ultra-modern French/Greek mathematician/architect/composer who had one eye? Why yes it is.

Iannis Xenakis’s “Rebonds B,” with its alternating bass drum and woodblocks, was the evening’s shortest yet most substantial moment, offering a sobriety and studied imagination that made a lot of the music around it seem not very important at all.

I don’t mind rivers and seas of blood, too much. I just hope we can skip the plague of locusts.
