blog gorp tarn claw

downbrae ; hollow ; medusiform ; stigmata ; pickax ; gazelle ; solid ; finch ; golddust

the purpose of this blog is static & solmizational; its intention is to transmute the migratory raptures into songful blather.

wrecked gamut in the sense meaning early organs had one key, or two
piano was Chinese & now it is chalk
gamut is a great word -- it comes from the Latin gamma ut; gamma the Greek letter used to denote the lowest hexachord (precursor to scale); ut's the first word of the Hymn to the Baptist whence the familiar doh-re-mi (Ut queant laxis resonare fibris Mira gestorum famuli tuorum, Solve polluti labii reatum, Sancte Iohannes); somehow ut got reverst to do somewhere along. so gamma ut means doh #3, which happens to be the lowest in pitch. & gamut means base of the whole range, etym, radial center.
gamma from the trilitera gml, meaning throwstick. the sense of it is: first the ox-head, then the house. now this.
ossifrage left as
cradle & landlock
the hand-drum stuttering
is money turnd to wires
organum meaning tool or functional subset. irk ; wright ; orgie ; georgic ; bulwark . the idea goes back far -- a low voice holds a low note as base (gamut), two melismatae curl & cross thru the open space above: a flexible line, tropic. introduction of the tenor (holder of the original line) because all had become filagree. replacement of the voice by an instrument (organon) -- the first organs ran on billows & were operated by several monks at a time. luminous degradation in the sense meaning all space is shoreline.
(the cod warns the shark:
but I taste just like fish)
quandoquidem patris rapinae
notae sunt populo et natis pilosas
fili non potes asse venditare

Gamut was the word that ended my participation in the Long Island Newsday spelling bee. I spelled it "gamet," which seemed far more reasonable at the time.

the first organs were clumps of tissue that appeared by chance but happened to be shockingly good for survival. They were operated by several monks at a time.
