A reading day

I’ve been having trouble with this wretched quintet – I don’t really know where to start with it and my brain’s feeling rather fried from too much social interaction, so I figured I might throw some random stuff at it and see if anything sticks. I borrowed some books from Ealing Library on Wednesday, so I started reading one of those – a history of the string quartet in the morning, then went out to Victoria Library with parents in tow and borrowed a bunch of stuff from Westminster Music Library, so I started in on one of them – Give My Regards To Eighth Street: Collected Writings of Morton Feldman – on the way home and for a little after I got home. And then there was the obligatory next chapter of Alex Ross’s The Rest Is Noise which I’m having a lot of trouble keeping away from. I think it all did some good at any rate, because I started to form a nebulous sort of an idea which may or may not work as a way of generating base material, but I’m really at the point where any idea is a cause for celebration right now, so I’m chalking it up as a win.
