I find it extremely interesting that Miles Davis influenced Pink Floyd, although it doesn't surprise me because Miles influenced everybody of this time. And in turn Radiohead was influenced by Pink Floyd and therefore Miled Davis by default.

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the entire for philip glass. No problem that your mind wandered from time to time---same thing happens to me when I listen to it. I find that I wander during many extended pieces, including those by Feldman, Messiaen's Vingt regards pour l'enfant Jesus, etc. That's just how the mind works, I suspect.

Incidentally, the link in your post for for philip glass is broken for some reason. The correct link is http://homepage.mac.com/dtoub/for_philip_glass_final_7_10_2006.mp3

I never said that a priori, Akhnaten is inferior to Satyagraha, just that in my view, Satyagraha is a better work. Just my opinion.

Finally, you didn't list my blog (http://homepage.mac.com/dtoub/blog/index.html) among your "feeds of the month?" 8-( Feel free to subscribe; here's the RSS if you'd like:
