 Some legit street music from Coco Elysses New Millennium Project. I'm running production for the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. We're presenting the Street Beat series all across Chicago. Today we're at E. 71st & S. Cregier Ave.  Strange lights coming from over the lake...the only explanation is #aliens. #IWantToBelieve #XFiles #Chicago
 Working hard.  I am now the proud owner of Mahler's 10th Symphony which was orchestrated by Deryck Cooke. This record is of the world premiere performance by @thePhiladelphiaOrchestra on November 5, 1965. #Mahler sketched the 10th symphony in Austria during the summer of 1910, three years after he had first learned of his serious heart condition. During that final summer of his life, there also occurred the marital crisis, which led the composer to seek the help and advice of Sigmund Freud. The whole incident made a deep and painful impression on Mahler. This is reflected in the outcries he penned in the margins of his unfinished manuscript, reinforcing the tenderness, agitation and despair of the music.

    Dear Mr. Corpus:

    I’m really intrigued by your piece, “Neighbors Ate my Zombies.” Is it for voices unaccompanied, and could it be done well with a small chorus?

    Thanks very much for your time.
