Music VII

[chuck] in Art, Balmorhea

I am still working on my rattan growth article (see Verification). In between writing sessions, when I am reflecting on group means and Tukey-Kramer Minimum Significant Differences (MSD), I have been very much enjoying the music of Balmorhea, a minimalist instrumental ensemble from Austin, Texas. In particular, their 2010 release, "Constellations" (shown above). One recent review describes the music this way: This is music for the children of the pioneers lying barefoot in a grassy plain with the dome of a moonless sky spread out above them. This is music for a sailor staring out at the black ocean and longing for a foreign port. Indeed. Well worth a listen.
