The it. Pleasant news vol. 8.1, no. 181mt. Pleasant Iowa. Monday Eveni no al ii St 7. I%1 these Days by George e. Sokolsky not Keally a hoax Tho British taste of humor is pungent and daring but rarely has it reached such perfection As the British broadcasting corporation perpetrated. They manufactured a composer Piotr Zak said to be a pole and they played a composition by the aforesaid Zak. Entitled a Mobile for tape and Pei no such Zak exists or Ever existed no polish composer bears such a name. The name is phony from every standpoint just As the so called music is phony. Bbl.

I am sure that it could not be very different from some of the modern composers who seek to prove not that they ran make music but rather that they have been to school and have Learned instrumentation. They establish beyond doubt that they know the difference Between a tympanum and a Bass drum to say nothing of the difference Between a Bassoon and a brass fiddle. Jet data on control of Elm disease space try summary having established their great knowledge of Tho Mechanic of music making devices these composers need ideas emotions sincerity to put together something j that can be remembered and re j rated this takes not Only in ten Pence but maturity. This of course does not come readily. Wagner for instance wrote purposeful music. He had a goal an Ideal a passion. He revved the ancient traditions of the teutonic Peoples just As Verdi inspired revolutionary nationalism As an italian Ideal. If such composers dragged i together a Bunch of instruments and just made noise they would undoubtedly have done As Well As the present noisemakers who Only make such noise to cover up their paucity of ideas. But the big folks did not Lack ideas just As we Ting Fang knew what he doing when he indented chop suey. It is said that when he ambassador to the United states some callers asked him if he could concoct some chinese food for them. They did not know that no chinese gentleman goes into a Kitchen and that their request vulgar. But we Ting Fang no bulgarian politely he went into his Kitchen took All the left overs in the ice Box.
