Mothers of Invention

It's amazing where An Overgrown Path leads. My Theremin and Variations article is linked on a Frank Zappa blog, which also yields these gems:
* A composer is a person who goes around forcing their will on unsuspecting air molecules, often with the assistance of unsuspecting musicians.

* A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it's not open.
* Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid."
Which can only lead to Dead '72

F. Zappa conducting Varese's work will be released soon.

He, FZ, was very close to death when he did it.

See www.zappa.com , his widow Gail takes care of that.
