    Dear Robin, I'd like to apologise for my negativity, I promise I'll pull my head in ...
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Dearest RoJo,

    I opened my big, fat gob and really plunged this thread into an obverse ascension - My sincerest apologies for this unfortunate turn of events

    cd

    Time for a snifter of a certain single malt

    Anyone for *A Waltz For 100 Chainsaws* by Freddie *Riptorn* Krueger?
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    No need to apologize to me, guys. You're both certainly entitled to your opinions, and are free to express them here, be they positive or negative. As is everyone.

    I guess it's just that I'm in agreement with some guy (who seems to have been on the receiving end of most of the harshness in this thread,) in that I don't see the need to denigrate a piece of music. At least not without some reason why other than "I don't like it," or "this is rubbish."

    But then, perhaps my comments regarding you guys being a drag is equally, or perhaps more reprehensible. Therefore, my apologies.

    *sigh*

    Anyway, perhaps we'd be best to move on.

    I do agree with J.H.C. in that I think Margaret has got us headed in an interesting new direction; ha, I actually went on the hunt for a classical work using a saw, any kind of saw, and came up empty handed. Darn it.

    I'll keep looking.

    If you go to youtube and type in 'car horn orchestra', the second result isa news report about a concerto for ute horn and orchestra by Australian professor Mike Atherton. Not quite saws, but still interesting enough. I haven't been able to find a full version, though.

    Margaret it was very well done and I suspect they were musical saws https://www.musicalsaw.com/catalog/order1.php which are musical instruments, But perhaps they were genuine old rip saws anyway at least it was music which is more than could be said for the con job of the Metro Gnomes

    J.H.C. - do you have a cold?

    Do you mean: you bumped it on the ceiling getting out of bed (more likely)?

    Ligeti's piece may be many things. Unless the meaning of "con job" has changed drastically in the last week or two.

    Hard to imagine how any work could be a con job. I suppose that a program note or some other commentary on it could be. But the piece itself? It's not pretending to be anything other than it is. It's not trying to trick you or get money out of you. It's just itself, a group of machines making sounds that create rhythmical patterns, which result simply from the setup, not from any notation.

    You may or may not like the idea. You may or may not like the results. But whatever is happening to you, being conned is not one of them.
