An Illusory Intertwingling of Reason and Response

Announcements: Here you’ll find the boring, “readme”-style, run-of-the-mill, administrative nonsense about Tafelmusik. If I do something odd, or change something, I’ll try to post it for your boring benefit.

Sehrgut Anachronism

I’ve just launched a new subsection of Sehr Gut Web: Sehrgut Anachronism (housing the Codex Anachronisticus: Sehr Gut). Here I&rsqou;ll be depositing all my anachronistic researches and pursuits.

Currently, the Codex is comprised of some ink-related recipes: namely the preparation of yellow dextrine (“British gum”) from corn starch, testing gum solutions for starch using iodine, and the preparation of a dextrine-bound Prussian Blue writing ink using Mrs. Stewart's Bluing.

Alice in Wonderland Pages

I love all things Alice, and always will. In tribute to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass, I’ve begun some basic pages on the books.

The major focus as yet, however, is not on the books themselves, but on another tribute work, The Alice in Wonderland Suite, by Lucien Desar. This fabulous twenty-minute musical Caterpillar's toadstool will bring you into the world of the Queen of Hearts, the White Rabbit, and of course the Cheshire Cat, in an entirely new way. In the grand tradition of Peter and the Wolf, the Rabbit is a piano, the Cheshire Cat is a trumpet, the Mad Hatter is a cello, and Alice is a soprano.
