Okay, I confess I’m a gadget girl. I think I can blame Dan … don’t you agree that would be an okay thing to do?

In any case, I just discovered the Korg WR-01 WI-Tune Advanced Wireless Chromatic Tuner.

It’s wireless. How cool is that?

When we tune an orchestra most of connect our tuner to a pick up and attach that to the bell of our oboe. Not having that wire seems so darn cool to me.

Of course the best thing to discover would be the everlasting reed, but so far no one has bothered with that. I really don’t understand why it’s being ignored.

It’s a mystery.

Rajaton: Me Kuljemme Kaikki Kuin Sumusa (We Walk in a Fog)

It bears repeating: at the Met, the most expensive opera tickets are indeed expensive, but you can stand behind the orchestra section—or even sit at the upper reaches of the house—for less than the cost of an IMAX showing at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 multiplex up the road. This persistent fiction of “elitism,” and contemporary classical music’s supposed inaccessibility, is one of the strongest propagandistic tools ever devised by the titans of corporate pop culture. They would prefer you not ever cost-compare a Family Circle seat to Satyagraha alongisde a 3D screening of Transformers 3.
