It was great to meet together yesterday, and see some faces we have not seen while we have not been meeting on line. We are now able to build up the numbers of the group now Culture Quest is back and we can meet to listen together.
Here is an interesting selection from yesterday
We are really forward to meeting in person in August. The zooms have been a good way of keeping things together but we are very much looking forward to inviting new people to the group.
Meanwhile here is one of today’s selections to keep your spirits up.
Kate Tempest’s Peoples Faces seems very poignant at present.
See our Zoom session playlists here.
‘Minas’ Milton Nascimento
‘Together Forever’ Run DMC
‘Parker’s Mood’ Charlie Parker.
‘Rosa Pano’ Luis Pestana
‘Welcome to the Jungle’ Guns and Roses.
‘Galaxy In Turiya’ Alice Coltrane.
The next Culture Quest Zoom session will be on 15/02/21
Thanks to all involved, here is what we played.
Culture Quest meetings are always an interesting listening journey !
We have been resisting doing CQ sessions on line as a lot of the value of our sessions is created by people being together listening in the same space. However due to this interminable situation of Lockdown today we decided to to do it.
It was agreed by those involved that it was nothing like the face to face experience but it was worth doing as it was bringing people together and sharing music.
The tracks chosen were.
The Balenscu Quartet playing David Byrne.
Felix Mendelssohn Hebrides Overture conducted by Sir John Barbirolli
Uma Thurman By Fall Out Boy
Returning by Paul White
Group member SYE63’s mix from future Radio’s Skid Row Show. The mix starts about 20 mins into the programme and last about 23 mins.
Chasing an Ear Worm
As we are not able to meet in person as a group I am restarting the listening diary. I thought we would start of with a different format. As I have recently become a little obsessed with this piece of music, which has created an ‘ear worm for me’ (below) and thought it would be fun to post a few different versions as it has inspired many.
This is the orchestral version that has inspired many. The orchestration is of one of the piano pieces by Modest Mussorgsky in his collection entitled ‘Pictures at an Exhibition. The orchestration is by Ravel.
This version will be remembered by prog rock fans from my generation.
For Analogue Synth fans..
And the original version.
Thank you to George for choosing this. Stravinsky conducting the first couple of minutes of his music for the ballet ‘Agon’.
