A personalized song? for me?
Interview (June 2010) with Katherine Sanden about music and song writing. Kat studied mathematics at Princeton University. She now tutors in mathematics, teaches music and piano, and writes sublime rhymes and beats.
For contra dance weekend Stellar Days & Nights, in Buena Vista, Colorado, February 18-21, 2010, I drove up with Richard, Laurel, and Karina Wilson, Lauren Lamont, and Della O’Keefe. During the silent auction CDSS‘s Max Newman and I got into a fierce bidding war over a custom song written and performed by Katherine Sanden. I had every intention to win, and when the bell rang, I had. In the spirit of the “new sincerity” I requested a “monster ego explosion” (after all, how many chances will I have for someone to write a song about ME!?). What I got was much, much more! I still flush with embarrassment each time I hear it. Quality headphones are recommended for a dynamic experience of the full audial range. Everyone needs a steamy power jam — lucky me!
