Edges of Dreaming is back this week at last, with the long-promised challenge episode… for which we only received a single entry. Was it really that, um, challenging? It must have been but George L Smyth send a good one that used all of the challenge’s parameters!

Podcast: Even More Music About Buildings and Food
Edges of Dreaming #100, 12 October 2019

“No Food In The House”, today’s sole challenge track, was based on a haiku George wrote: 

No food in the house 
Someone please go to the store 
Finally, dinner! 

The piece is in three parts, each part relating to a line in the poem. Included within is an homage to Talking Heads’ Burning Down The House. 

“No Food In The House” was written for Clarinet, Horn, Trombone, Tubular Bells, Cymbals, Vibraphone, Violin, Viola, Cello and String Bass.
