The Chronophontians and their music

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 18, 2014, 11:16 AM



Not all of it is for everybody.  It's not even all of it for me!

For instance, Pandora likes, besides hard rock which I also like, rap and country.  I've heard some rap and country pieces that I like, but the genres are not on my shopping list.

Jeannine, uniquely, shares my own taste for 20th-century classical music.  She missed out on a lot of it, having jumped from 1930 to 2007.  But she has been making up for "lost" time since then.  She heard a little of it in late 20's Paris, as well as a lot of jazz, which she also likes.

Sister Lisette has no use for that classical junk.  She used to listen to jazz, but now she goes for rock and hip-hop.

Natasha likes "nice" music of almost any kind.  She especially likes Chopin waltzes.

Shirley has been hearing music for three thousand years - much of what she used to love was never even recorded and is long lost.  What she likes now is international folk music, especially from various non-western parts of the world.

Aisha doesn't give a rap about rap - her kind of music is gospel and old-time soul music.  She (like me) is a big fan of Aretha Franklin.

Giovanna is from my own time and likes a lot of the music of "our" time: classic rock.  She sometimes reminds us that she listens to Jefferson Airplane, not Jefferson Starship...though this is not quite true.

The big surprise is Euthie.  I knew she was musical - she learned bass guitar amazingly fast, and plays bass in the Chronophontians' band, The Phonz.  And sometimes she talked about playing piano and harpsichord when she was younger.  But I'll never get over her reaction to the gift of a harpsichord.

She plays it for hours! - with very little repetition.  Almost everything she plays (not quite everything) is old music - baroque and before.  The biggest component is the Transylvanian baroque that she grew up with (remember, she was born in 1690) - more modal and "East European" sounding than the more familiar western baroque.

But her repertoire is remarkably broad.  I think some of the music was provided by her father the Baron, whose cultural compass pointed firmly to the west.  So she sometimes plays pieces by Scarlatti, by earlier Italians, and even a few pieces by William Byrd way off in England.  (And 100+ years before her time.)  And she has not forgotten a note of it!

:iconvirtualeuthanasia:  Not likely I would.  I've been playing that @#$%^& for hundreds of years.

:groucho:  But nowhere near as much as you've been playing it since you got that harpsichord.

:iconvirtualeuthanasia:  It's useful.  It does the job.  And it means I don't have to compete with Phantom.

"Phantom", of course, is her BF, Erik the Phantom of the Opera - who yields to none in being musical.  He monopolized their piano for a long time, until Euthie got him an organ as a present.  

:iconvirtualeuthanasia:  He monopolizes THAT now.

On thanking faves: I like to! Even when I run into curmudgeons who actually object to being thanked. :? :X

However, I have the problem of being popular! Well, sort of. Not, thank God, popular enough to make enemies, but popular enough that I can't thank every fave. So as a compromise, I thank everyone who faves and comments, and everyone who faves more than once during the period (typically four or five days) before the next time I go through and delete messages. So if you fave and don't get a thank-you, sorry, I thank you all!

Thanks! 

Kitty is a sweetie, definitely one of my own favorites.  I've never created any catgirls myself, except for occasional "cosplays" back in 2007, but thanks to izka-197 and AnyaGladstone, I have LOTS of catgirl "Friends" now.
