The first issue of Angle has just been published. I’ve got two pieces in it, “The Real Pity”, a tribute, albeit somewhat critical, to Wilfred Owen, and “A Giraffe Among Jackals”, a tribute to Mark Allinson. There are also sung versions of both pieces.
I sang both songs today for my first-year class, as well as the rest of the set of 12 songs I intend to perform later this year during the Edinburgh Festival – see my latest post. I didn’t make too many mistakes, but 0 mistakes is the aim. It’ll help when I’ve learnt them all by heart. My performance was recorded on video. So I may be posting some of that later on.
