It's past two in the morning at Sidney Sussex College in Cambridge, and the Vexations marathon is going strong. The previous player seemed to be getting a little punchy toward the end of his run, but this one — I believe it's Paul Kilbey, president of the Music Society — exudes an eerie calm.
The scene around 5AM.
Early afternoon: a pale sun has risen over Cambridge, and Satie soldiers on. This appears to be Jamal Sutton. I, admittedly, slept.
2:28PM: Kilbey acknowledges the grateful applause of an invisible but not infinitesimal public. Alas, my connection went down during iteration #840, so I cannot comment on the interpretive choices that Kilbey made at the very end, but he had been tending toward a hard-edged neoclassical aesthetic. Congratulations to all!
