Two Poems of Joseph Seamon Cotter

Two Poems of Joseph Seamon Cotter, Jr.

This is a choral commission I did in 1999 for Cherry Hill West High School, in Cherry Hill, NJ. It was performed at the 1999 American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) national convention at Symphony Hall in Chicago, Illinois, and was conducted by Christine Bass. The video of this performance is viewable below.

The text of the two poems, Night Winds and Rain Music, was written by Joseph Seamon Cotter Jr. (1885-1919), a playwright, journalist, and poet from Louisville, Kentucky.

I think it’s safe to say when Instagram tries to launch their nth new feature copied from another rival platform, their chances of success now become 1/n.

An interesting comment in light of the fact that the work of millions of human creators has been vacuumed up by OpenAI without consent or compensation.

Happy birthday to this dude (@aaronscottlazar) who is working on a project of a lifetime in the middle of a battle of a lifetime and is making everyone stronger for it. Thank you for being in my life bro and so glad we get to make some magical music together. @youralsnetwork
