<note to self>

reel-to-reelas a kid, we played around with my father’s reel-to-reel. before i had a job, i had a cassette player, and i remember buying blank tapes. with my first inheritance i purchased a tape deck and a turntable. now i have an ipod, and i search the internet for recorded music, even concerts and shows. but for most of history, music was only live. you either listened to it or played it. that was brought home for me this week listening to lederman and bell in concert. sure, now i can find them on the internet, just as i can find recordings of sarah mclachlan or bach. in fact, i spent much of an afternoon searching for bach videos, which was enlightening, but it isn’t the same as live, like it was thursday, or sunday, or this wednesday when de danann comes to town, or when i was playing in a band, or teaching or being taught.
