The Mr and I have a disagreement. I think Tom Waits’ version of his song is far superior to the Eagles’ cover. What say y’all?
Tell Mr. he's wrong. Tom Waits' version is superior to the Eagles' because....well, TOM WAITS!

The Eagles made some fine tunes, and I love a lot of their singing, but the production team slicked that one up too much. Too syrupy.

Malheur wildlife refuge occupation inspires new symphony (but not the way you might think)

https://www.oregonlive.com/news/2019/01 ... hYKK27HWWQ
In the beginning, the two men envisioned a 12-to-20-minute piece. After speaking with various groups of people who care about the refuge, things expanded. Each of the groups — tribal members, birders, Friends of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and geologists — gave different input about what they thought the symphony should say.

Thomas realized he had full symphony on his hands with five different movements. The first is “Dawning Light,” the sound of life beginning. The second, “Sacred Basin,” tells the story of the thousands of years the Paiute people lived freely in the basin. The third, “Thunder,” came after Thomas witnessed a thunderstorm on one of his trips to the refuge. It’s the shortest, darkest movement. The fourth, Thomas' favorite, “Curlew Scherzo,” showcases one of the refuge’s residents, the long-billed curlew, and its operatic call. The final movement is a big, brass fanfare called “Awakening.”

The Central Oregon Symphony will perform the work at a world premiere in Burns in May and later in Bend. Thomas said the orchestra is considering doing a multi-city tour in the Pacific Northwest. He hopes his hometown is one of the destinations.

:snippity:

“My hope is that this music will help with the healing process, including the communities affected as well as the land itself, and remind people about the special place that is the Malheur Refuge,” he said. “It is pretty exciting stuff.”

Undiscovered Elgar Masterpiece Not Heard For Nearly 100 Years Sells At Auction For £11k

By Dan Coles

An undiscovered masterpiece by Sir Edward Elgar has sold at auction for £11,000 – after it was discovered hidden in the pages of an autograph book. The ‘andante’ melody, which dates back to 1924, was written on musical manuscript paper and signed by the great composer.

:think: :confused:

Musical tones often create overtones. It is most often heard with more than one note. Depending on the tone and the tuning, the overtones can be almost inaudible to very loud. I believe one reason why male quartets and choruses are well-liked is because of the overtones they create. I have even accused somebody in the sopranos of being on the wrong note because I picked up an overtone, enhanced by sympathetic vibrations on the piano.

On the other side, there is also something called a different tone which as a note heard below. You can pick this up often with high pitched instruments or voices. When they are not tuning well, that difference done can be very grating and sounds a bit like it is beating.

Overtones exist even with a single note, though are often not distinguishable from the fundamental tone (from time to time, I have wondered what that other tone one organ note was until I realized it was an overtone, probably picking up sympathetic vibrations from something in the room). To do it with the voice is possible but requires shaping the mouth and tongue to create just the right tone. I assume she is moving her tongue to get the overtone to change.

The physics of sound are fun.

Beautiful! This is a a popular Rachmaninoff piece (not Looney Tunes, but NPR). The melody beginning at 30:00 and the powerful ending will be familiar to many Fogboggers. Rachmaninoff Rachs!!!!

Thanks, Indigo! :thumbs:

So back playing a computer game and i decide to visit a new area I haven't seen before, and suddenly, out of the blue, A musical number!



A very nice more melodic cover of the same song
