Back in NYC. Don't feel much like going out, but I guess I'll head on down to the Robert Glasper/DJ Logic hit in Prospect Park tonight. Heartfelt thanks to those who commented on Barry's passing, both in the thread below and on Lindsay's blog, and for those who sent sent supportive messages via other means.
Regular blogging will resume soon, though it may be a little thin on the ground -- between a new pops arrangement for the ASO, herding cats for Secret Society North, getting the ball rolling on my piece for the Brooklyn Phil, and designing the curriculum for the "Music Notation with Finale" class I'll be teaching at Queens College this fall, I've got a wee bit of catching up to do.
But don't fret, there will be new Secret Society hits and new Secret Society music -- alongside new Pulse projects -- sometime this fall.
UPDATE: So, uh, it turns out the Glasper/Logic hit was actually at Metrotech this afternoon. I don't know how I ended up putting them down in iCal as tonight's Prospect Park show. Anyway, since I was already sitting down by the bandshell by the time I realized my mistake, I decided to stay for Noche Flamenca et al. I'll have pics and a little writeup soon.
