NOTES: How Many Angels Can Dance on the Head of a Pin?
No better time than a Full Moon to release a new piece of music. “How Many Angels Can Dance on the Head of a Pin”
Very inspired by this writing by Patrick Comerford, link below, and gave the name of this piece of music “How Many Angels Can Dance on the Head of a Pin” due to his inspirational writing. I also enjoyed reading all the links he provided about the artist, Emily Young, his thoughts and quotes by her. I thank him very much for letting me make use of his photographs for this piece of music and to the artist Emily Young for making them. The connection point for me in his writing was immediate in his succinct and direct insightful recognition of such questions and in my seeing how in social media distracts us into questions that are essentially “A metaphor for wasting time discussing trivial topics that have no practical value, or asking questions whose answers hold no practical value, or asking questions whose answers hold no consequence, at times when we have more urgent concerns to debate.”
His writing has many layers of depth to it that I particularly am drawn to in the subjects of architecture, sculptures, history, theology, questions, the deeper meaning of things and the beauty of things we might not have noticed or fully appreciated before. I love his thoughtful responses to the questions and what brought those very questions up upon reflecting the sculptures made by Emily Young as he was taking a walk in London with his wife and taking photos. Hope you enjoy his writing and enjoy my music too!
