Reading: just coming to the end of Bowen’s The death of the heart, and half way through La peau de chagrin; now that I’m more used to the style, I’m settling into it, although it’s a very odd little book.
Listening: truly fantastic concert last night; a newish piece by Thomas Adès and Steve Reich’s Music for 18 musicians. The first one was accompanied by a ‘video interpretation’ which was pretty amazing, and it was really fascinating to watch the Steve Reich being performed: some of the noises are very odd and it’s interesting to see how they’re done with perfectly normal musicians and singers, not computers or trickery.
Watching: just been lent series 3 of The wire, yay! Can’t wait.
