07:30 tENT explains that he's asking tonight's mm participants to play 5 phrases or units of their choosing on his organ to be vaudeod so that he can both make a movie of mm 60 as well as incorporate the results in a bigger project he has in mind, an 'opera' or 'oratorio' & explains that future mms will have a similar procedure using other instruments in tENT's collection - the next one planned being for accordion

08:00 Hyla talks about Saul Bass, a pioneer of innovative movie titling, & mentions a movie he made called "Why Man Creates" ( ). Ben joins in b/c he'd recently heard an NPR special on him - Bass made a movie called "Phase 4" ( )- he also made the titles for Blake Edwards' "The Pink Panther" - tENT talked about just having checked out Edwards' "S.O.B." wch he liked

[after tENT posted the link to these notes on his Amir-ul Kafirs Facebook page, Hyla provided this Saul Bass link:

08:50 We go off on a tangent about CAPA Antihesis, wch Ben founded or cofounded, the highschool for the arts' contemporary music ensemble wch led to talk about Anthony Braxton, who Ben had brought to CAPA & where Antithesis played Braxton's work - this leads to Ben talking about Braxton's piece for 5 planets & we look at the title for that one wch is in the Braxton piece for 4 orchestras box set bklt
