Dog Playing Piano, Singing

What else could it be?

Obviously the dog is playing a Arnold Schoenberg composition, and humming along a la Glenn Gould.

I was thinking John Cage....

Laughing.. That is one soulful dog, uninhibited too.

Bix said...

I was laughing at the Gould reference. We have a cd of him playing Bach and if you listen closely you can hear him humming softly.

I wasn't familiar with John Cage. I just looked him up. Is he like Philip Glass?

Dr. Mel said...

Cage was even more modernist than Philip Glass--less musical, more just about sound (including ambient noise) or the absence of sound. I learned about him vis-a-vis post-1945 painting.

Maybe the dog is singin' the blues. Did you see the White House Blues Fest? It was rerun on NJ public tv last night--really good, and fun!

Here's a link to the whole blues show from the White House. It was so incongruous to hear all this blues music w/ portraits of Geo Washington, Martha, etc. in the background! http://www.pbs.org/inperformanceatthewhitehouse/

I didn't see the blues show. But I did see a few clips of Obama singing. One was Al Green ... "I'm ... I'm so-o in love with you..." I couldn't stop singing it all day. Earworm that.
