I poked my head into the prepared piano to see what got prepared for the Pärt. (I crack myself up.) It didn't look like much--just some little screws balanced between selected strings and dangling there--but it sounded really cool. Will find out tonight if there is additional preparation for the Castaldo piece (the Mithras one).
Tonight is dress rehearsal #2, in which we will work on the two pieces that have assorted Extra Stuff for the singers to do, like clapping and snapping fingers and all that business. On the bright side, we get to hear our percussionists.
And today I am in the Author Spotlight at Jessica Freely's blog Friskbiskit, talking about the male/male relationship aspects of The Moonlight Mistress, among other things.
