The session with the Seattle Symphony went well. We worked hard-over and over until everything was right and Concerto No. 10 was respectably documented.
Afterwards, a few photos in the garden outside of the Seattle Opera House and then a lunch. We talked-or rather, Alan spoke and I listened. He told about "the little planets," (the asteroids,) and how life was perfectly possible there, that he had already been there and knew this. I was not surprised: years before in New York he had spoken about "flying across the English Channel," knowing Rosemary Brown (who had "written" compositions by other composers,) and other quite believeable out-of-body experiences. How could one have composed such extra-visionary works without being being open to these?
I wonder if he is now watching from the Little Planets.
