I have to thank NPR's ATC for writing my post tonight. It's an April Fool's spoof piece that is painfully apt:
How perfect that the set up is a composer who's genre is subminimalism. Where have we seen subminimalism before? (Reporters who can't count to a million? Or who can't remember history?)
I love that the fictional composer's latest masterpiece is composed of one note. Puts me in mind of news that has one note.) And finally, how perfect that no matter the instrument (Simon, Inskeep, Siegel, etc.) it's always the same note, and a flat one at that!
