James Roe blog activity

James Roe seems to be on pause right now, since no article has been published for 3 months. The last article in James Roe, "POEMS 2005-2017", is dated 2019-07-22.

"On pause" does not mean, however, that James Roe will not resume its activity soon, nor that its articles are less interesting than another more active source.

This editorial activity is no different from that recorded for the previous period.

THE STILLNESS OF THE WORLD AFTER BACH to Lars Gustaffson The early morning delivery trucks hiss and rumble on the street below. Cars whoosh in the rain, breaks squealing like piccolos. (Didn't John Cage say that today, the sound of silence is the noise of traffic?) Faint strains of last night's recital arise through the din. Bach's Sonata for Harpsichord and Violin in A Minor, the three voices of the opening canon wend through such pleasurable pathways. (A trio, Bach said, for two.) In the kitchen, my tea- kettle shrieks for relief. A dog barks, doors slam, a train bays […]

THE STILLNESS OF THE WORLD AFTER BACH             to Lars Gustaffson Trucks sputter and rumble on the street below, while cars whoosh in the rain, breaks  take the piccolo parts.  (Didn't John Cage say the sound  of silence is the noise of traffic?) Through the city's morning din I attemptto extract faint strains of yesterday's recital.  Bach's Sonata for Harpsichord and Violin in A Minor. The three voices of its opening canon wend through such pleasurable pathways. A trio, Bach said, for two. The teakettle shrieks in the kitchen and I rush to relieve her. A dog barks, opened doors slam, a train bays at the disappearing moon, and Bach's notes balance briefly on the finger tips of memory before flying off into the pink daybreak. -----WHAT HOPPER KNEWAgain, here.After midnightAt the barAnd the weight ofAll those […]

Hugues Cuenod (1902-2010) It was impossible to fe 

Hugues Cuenod (1902-2010) It was impossible to feel down around Hughie. Remembering him this quiet, bright morning, I am grateful to have known this musician, whose irrepressible joy in life and art expanded the humanity of everyone he met.
