ocarina... how to access its portable goodness Re: Left-handedCompliments From Off the Wall



Sounds like fun... in spite of my coal-burning phone modem, I'll check out 
your sounds if the download times are not too onerous, OR perhaps we could 
trade discs. 

BTW, my plastic ocarina just makes one irritating note regardless of 
fingering. One of its holes is labeled "Thumb"... this hole is filled in, 
just a raised circle but no hole. I know nothing about ocarinas, so I ask 
your expertness, am I witnessing another example of iffy Chinese 
workmanship, or are other ocarinas like this?

ArsOcarina is the name of my publishing company. Think Latin. If "ars 
nova"<BR>
would be "new arts. " Then "ars ocarina" would be "ocarina arts" or 
perhaps<BR>
a little more obscurely, "goose-egg arts" (and by extension, colloquially, 
"zero<BR>
arts"). I have a fondness for Latin for some peculiar reason (no I am 
not<BR>
Catholic). Maybe it just makes me feel "smarter" for using it -- or it 
gives <BR>
me the illusion of intelligence. I also have a couple of ocarinas and play 
them.<BR>

Well, er . . . thanks! The two half-day sessions it took to record were a 
<BR>
high point of my musical life that I am still trying to recapture 
fragments <BR>
of somehow -- one of those rare instances where you leap from the cliff 
<BR>
edge and miraculously find yourself flying. That it happened on two <BR>
consecutive days in a row is a buoying thought that gives me hope <BR>
it will happen again someday. <BR>
<BR>
People have continually said some really nice things about it. This tends 
<BR>
to confirm to me the idea that something different (from normal) was <BR>
happening at the time. But, it seems almost as inappropriate for me to <BR>
wholly take credit for it as it would to take credit for a sunset or a 
rainbow. <BR>
I know that's got to sound really, really odd. But that's the conviction I 
have. <BR>
It (the music in those 10 improvs) frankly seems to have been coming <BR>
from a place (within or without) that I have no control over and cannot 
<BR>
conjure on demand. <BR>
<BR>
The idea that you enjoyed it DOES make me glad, however. Thanks!<BR>
