I’m settling in to summer in New York–haven’t seen Indiana Jones yet, but I’m doing all the rest of my favorite summer things, or the ones that I have time for. There’s still a lot of work to do. In addition to practicing, I’m finishing edits on the John Musto disc, and also ICE’s disc of pieces for guitar and ensemble for New Focus.
That said, I’m hoping to bike around Prospect Park this weekend; it’s an activity that, for me, belongs to summertime. I’m also dreaming of the sea, and spending a little bit of time at the shore–was it coincidental that during my gym workout today I was listening to Debussy’s La Mer? The great recording with Reiner and the Chicago Symphony almost makes you smell seawater.
