The Crimson Grail, 3

image445092415.jpgThere’s a dark, deep ringing, undertones as well as overtones, a dramatic modulation concludes the first part.

Now a four- square beat on the hi-hat and a bass pedal. A chord is literally being passed around the horseshoe. Monolithic rock.

Some of the guitars are slowly falling out of tune, which adds to the texture, which is massive yet transparent.

I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
