Ukens unyttige: carillon

mandag, mars 23rd, 2009

Napoleon under slaget om BorodinoVisste du at Tsjaikovskys Ouverture Solennelle, L’Année 1812, Op. 49, bedre kjent som “1812-overtyren”, opprinnelig var skrevet med musikkinstrumentet carillon som viktig innslag? Det visste ikke jeg heller, inntil jeg slo det opp og plutselig skjønte hvofor det kan innebære visse logistikkproblemer å inkludere enkelte typer instrumenter i musikkstykker.

Jeg lurer på hva en carillon-koffert koster hos Imerslund.

like crawling home after a long night of misadventures, burrowing into the backseat of a cab, squinting your eyes at the light buzzing across the horizon, tying your shoes, and thinking hard about blankets.

I wish.

I’m sitting (planted, really) in bed, smoking, listening to Olsen Olsen from Sigur Rós’ 1999 album Ágætis byrjun, reading a somewhat interesting article on Kvenland while waiting for a 283 MB uplink transfer to a customer’s server, having a cold which includes stomach tingling and a runny nose, drinking cold coffee, trying to work but can’t. The sun shines outside the window, and the Olsen Olsen Da Capo is impressive in its chaotic song-theme-cum-background-noise. I guess I should be outside, but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.

I have one more coffee to drink on the Lido, but it won’t be today.

Never mind the bow. That’s how he always plays the guitar.
