Comments on Hub review

this is an audio post - click to play The Hub got slammed by a critic in the San Francisco Classical Voice web page. There has always been some distance between where our music is and what classical music criticsm wants to hear. This has been true for decades. You can check the review for yourself at here

Vex from 2nd HUB CD

VEX (Scot Gresham-Lancaster, 1993) is short for Vexations and refers to the short chorale written by Eric Satie in 1893 and popularized by John Cage in the early sixties. I was pleased to be able to maintain the etheral quality of this beautiful piece while contributing something more to its dreamlife. "With great immobility" in Rosicrucian induced hallucination, I see Mr. Satie taking a lobster for a sunday stroll in the park near his home in the outskirts of Paris.

Here is a picture that Tim Perkis my good friend, and fellow Hubster, took while we were in Berlin this June. It was amazing how the shaft of light mapped to the end of the "c" of the grafitti. We were at the new Tesla center at was once the Podewil. Carsten Seiffarth the curator and producer there, had seen us at DEAF 2005 in Rotterdam in November. You can see a video of our performance there here. The Hub is performing at the San Francisco Electronic Music festival next week.
I am sitting here watching "Cat in the Hat". It did get mixed reviews and I am seeing why. Mike Meyers has been so brilliant in so many other films. Any way I called this blog "Orchestrate Clang Mass" is the anagram of my full name Scot Gresham-Lancaster. By rearranging the letters you get this result. Pretty amazing really. Any way as part of my ongoing struggle to figure the best or at least expensive method to podcast. If you are interested in alternatives I have been experimenting with Pivot. I have made a blog for our non-profit ORIMA at . I will be back later with some more.
