We're scoring the poem O sadness over rage O rage over sadness by K. Curtis Lyle, and we have been rummaging for music in the key of Black Indian Cowboy Silent Western -- however you want to multiply construe any of those concepts.
Now comes along one Mike Burgett multiply construing concepts, with two blips of music for our consideration. Hours more like it from Mike, as I well know.
"Alcohol and used Father Peyote" *
"Dream burned butter" *
* I have given these songs provisional new titles taken verbatim from Curtis' poem. That is one of the ways to score a line of poem in a poetry score, to bestow it as a title onto an instrumental. Who knows how, where or if these pieces will actually find their way into the completed piece.
O sadness over rage O rage over sadness
By K. Curtis Lyle
The image is "Peyote Healing" by J. Myztico Campo, an artist we should try to involve in this project.
