Re: GG: DJ Masta Glenn

One Saturday, I was recording a tape from a Glenn Gould Bach
recording -- WTK Book II, I think -- using the stereo in my living
room. It was playing just loudly enough so that I could hear it softly
in the bedroom. Then, without thinking, I started playing another
Glenn Gould Bach recording (the first disk of Images) on the CD player
in my bedroom. Somehow, the two recordings "fit" together perfectly --
like a latch hook rug of piano music. Hard to explain, but it was
cool. Someday, I'll try that again.

But I haven't tried the experiment of watching "The Wizard of Oz" with
the sound turned off while listening to Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the
Moon." I hear they really do fit together well.
