My work

As I have mentioned previously, I feel somewhat painfully ambivalent about my scholarly work. On the other hand, it seems as if there is something in the execution of this particular paper that may indicate a future life of some sort.

I just read through it again (in the hotel) and this time it occurred to me that I might ask to read it again at another conference on the same composer, rather than struggle to come up with yet another topic by the end of the month. It also occurred to me that I might be able to expand it into a topic for a North American music theory conference, which would give me a longer presentation time and therefore would allow me to include some of the outtakes that didn't make it into this version. The deadline for that is January. Again, rather than force myself to try out something brand new and fail to achieve the deadline, I might try rethinking this slightly and see if I might be able to get a bit more mileage out of it.

OK, that's all for now. I need to take care of some things before I start going to events.

Om Kreem Kalyai Namaha,
