JAR SESSION 09:THE HUMORS in FOUR PARTS
JUNIOR ASPIRIN PODCAST 09: THE HUMORS, in FOUR PARTS....
Four reflections on medieval humorism. Like Rick Wakeman said of his "Six wives of Henry VIII" , these are not meant to be taken as literal representations of the four medieval temperaments... rather a contemporary redressing of an imbalance of humors. Devised and selected by Patrick Gibson.
Part One - Sanguine. Laughing the loudest and wearing the flashiest outfits, a courageous selection of tracks. Ultimately lending themselves to sketches, life drawings, and rustic scenes. The humor of Sanguine is usually treated with leeches. PODCAST HERE
Part Two - Choleric. BILE BILE BILE a fiery YELLOW grouping. There is nothing I love as much as a good fight. A natural superabundance of the choleric. PODCAST HERE
Part Three - Melancholic. Semper Dowland, semper dolens. Melancholy Dane. Indolent dreaming wistfulness. Where is the ring I gave to Nancy Spain?PODCAST HERE
Part Four - Phlegmatic. Get up late in the morning; Dorian mode on C; Take a nap; Eat; In this case the mode is the Phrygian; Take another nap; Go to bed. Hey Mr Pharmacist! This is one for those availed of a superb set of headphones - frequency spectrum junkies, medotists, nanologicians, monkish gong ritualists - communicate with the insect kingdom: Phenomenon, certainly but without the Iron Maiden.
