Salade a la Boulez
Yesterday's post reflected on the visual similarities, as captured by photographer Alexander Lauterwasser, between Stockhausen's music and a jellyfish. The image above comes from the same sequence of photos by Alexander Lauterwasser, and shows the pattern created by one of Pierre Boulez's compositions.
Below is a pattern created by using Paint Shop Pro to modify the colours in a photo of a particularly delicous salad we enjoyed at a waterside restaurant while cycling around the island of Noirmoutier in France. A Google search returned no connections between Boulez and salad. But it did remind me that the expression 'salad days' is one of countless added to the English language by Shakespeare.
