Musical links I have nicked

Jocelyn Lavin over at 2nd Altos Like The Bottom Parts posts a few very interesting links.

First this one explaining how the fireworks for the Edinburgh Festival fireworks concerts are synchronised with the music (and explaining why the famous "waterfall" effect didn't appear this year until right at the end!).

Then an informative and funny A-Z guide to Wagner's Ring cycle.

Jocelyn links to a Youtube video about how to write a fugue based on Britney Spears' "Oops, I Did It Again". I didn't think that much of the video, but the Youtube entry linked to the fugue itself as a pdf file. Enjoy (especially if you play piano).

But the best one, which made me laugh out loud a lot, was this rider (i.e. list of equipment and other requirements for a concert) written by roadie Jos Grain for Iggy Pop and the Stooges. 18 pages long and every one a gem. (Well, OK, page 7 sags a bit....)
