Bun B. Met ’em today. H-Town.
**Sylvia Plath** One of her poems about the war and the Holocaust. She read this on a BBC broadcast a year before her suicide in 1963.
My favorite Chopin Etude played to perfection.

Love this new track from Wendy James, ‘It’s Alright Ma‘
Houston’s Rothko Chapel is known for the fourteen monochromatic paintings that (literally) darken its walls, as well as the suicide of the man who created them, painter Mark Rothko–these paintings were his final works. Lesser known, however, is the musical composition written to commemorate chapel’s opening. Composer Morton Feldman debuted “Rothko Chapel,” the composition, at the opening ceremony in 1971. A musical representation of the room’s austere beauty, the work proved every bit as stark as the paintings themselves, but in many ways, it was filled with much more color too. Here’s the first part of this remarkable piece of music.
