    Return - Streaming/Apologies

    Sorry for the double post/link to this piece. This is what you get when you try something new. My new server, .Mac likes to make files downloadable, but not streamable. Here is one workaround that was suggested - the link should take you to a page that will start the download, but play it as it does so - i.e., the way most of us listen (and bail out, if need be...). So for those of you who didn't want to download a 20mg file out of curiosity, see if this works any better - you should have sound very soon after clicking the link.

    Let me know if it works.

    Thanks,

    R. Pearl

    Fascinating piece, Ron, and that opening is subtle
    craft at its best, as the pieces rain into the composition,
    emplacing themselves.

    But what struck me first was the overwhelming
    gentleness of it; the slow discourse of a warmly
    caressing mist of independently speaking lines, making
    their way toward the midsection.

    And then the central contrast, the discussion, the
    dialogue that combines the thoughts into a single
    argument of intention and realization; leading inevitably
    to the final agreement, the slow dissolution and evaporation
    of the rain of ideas that initiated the piece.

    It is not simply returning this is about. It is returning,
    recognition... and departure.

    Well done, my friend. I have listened though this
    twice thus far, and have found it deeply moving in
    its quiet reflection on the immutability of that which
    has been.

    Post Scriptum:

    This link seems to work okay; though it does
    ask for an ActiveX control, and I had to bang
    on the pause/play button several times, it
    seemed.

    David,

    First of all, thank you for words and the way in which you describe the piece. I'm glad those qualities come through, and that the narrative, if one can call it that, has a convincing arc. I truly appreciate the thoughtfulness of your replies - as so do all the other members of the forum!

    Regards the link - oy...For some reason, and I haven't recieved an answer, the .Mac server zips everything. So, I set it up differently, and the link is now its own page. Better, but not solved. For some reason, I can't just post a series of links on a page. I must be missing something, as Mac users do this all the time - indeed, isn't the ease with which one is supposed to be able do do this one of the selling points? I've always been a Mac guy, so this glitch seems odd - again, I must be missing something really elemental.

    Thanks for persevering.

    All the best,

    Ron
