The Vanity Google

I've blogged before about "narcissearching": that thing we probably all do in our own secret little moments, plugging our name in as a search term in Google to see what kind of hits we get. I'm used to getting things related to a far-more-famous producer who goes by "Scotty Hard," (like Dirk Diggler: a great name!), but it's still a worthwhile thing for me to do. Basically, I'm looking for performances of my music to list in my Curriculum Vita. Imagine my pleasant surprise, then, to come across a quartet performing my percussion ensemble Taiko in Grenada last January! The piece is ostensibly written for 6-8 musicians, but this is a great re-imagining of it for the smaller group. Not only is it a more compact piece like this, but this may be the best performance of it I've yet heard. Congrats MintaKa, and thanks for the great job!

That's just cool!

I have much more internet presence as Gknee than Jeanne Sutton or Jeanne Clemens. Weird hunh?

I'd love to have all of your percussion ensemble pieces loaded on my Ipod to run with. WOW!! Great stuff. Makes me proud to know such an accomplished composer.

Very cool! It's a great piece! And what a tight performance. You should hunt these people down and force them to collaborate with you. Good excuse for a trip to Spain.

I am so proud of you Dr. Harding. I have goose bumps on my goose bumps. I try to brag about you every chance I get! Hunter wants to know if you'll write him a solo perc piece for the 7th grade solo and ensemble. :) He thinks you're awesome!
