I'm a quick 14-hour drive* east of Chicago to see some of the Ecstatic Music Festival, a 14-concert exploration of an contemporary music in its most expanded and inclusive form. Today was the 7-hour marathon concert, which lived up to my lofty expectations, gave me a lot to hear and, subsequently, a lot to talk about.
[My ears really were just about full--which is impressive; I have unusually deep ears. I could hardly tolerate the adult contemporary background music while eating some uninspired NY-style pizza on 14th near 7th ave (not recommended for its pizza either).]
