I'm in Boston. They say this is the intellectual center of the universe.
Just finished up a week of recording on a secret project and gave talks to students and faculty at Yale University and University of Hartford.
Last night I met Stephen Croes (and George Massenburg) at Berklee College of Music and was provided a very ambitious schedule for the next few days.
This morning I met with Dennis Miller and gave a talk at Northeastern University and got lost driving in this Town (the street array make no sense).
This afternoon gave a talk to the Berklee faculty in the Composition Department and then a lecture for the Advanced Sampling class.Late this afternoon we did a recording session and invited some Berklee students to the sessions.
The next few days will be very busy with about a dozen lectures and meetings. We'll also be doing some recording at Harvard before heading to AES.
I am really looking forward to meeting some of you at AES in New York at the end of the week.
I'll keep you abreast of what 's happening.
PS: The Red Sox win seems to be the rave of the town.
Congratulations, Mr. Garritan. You are the ten millionth person to get lost in the city of Boston! To claim your prize, you must first try to find your way back to the airport during rush hour without navigational aids.
Hmmm, secret project...Boston...Yale...Harvord.
This can only mean one thing!!!
No, OK. I give up!
What is it?
You already have the absolute most bestest orcehstral package with GPOA, you have the most bestest jazz and big band package with JABB, you have the absolutel bestest strings package with GOS, you have the absolute most bestest solo package with GSV (and I think you said once you were going to end up with a whole string quartet using sonic morphing), you have pipe organs on the way, you have choirs on the way, well...all I can think of next is an ethnic library or a piano library.
I guess you learned your lesson about announcing upcoming libraries too soon, huh?
