'Timeless' is much very to the point.
Here in Parma there's a street musician, usually to be found
near Via Cavour and Strada al Duomo, who plays Bach on the
accordeon, and as far as I can tell he does so perfectly.
I've been sitting down many times on the stairs of the
Battistero just to listen to him, knowing I would miss the
bus and would have to wait another half hour.
Today some of my colleagues made a recording of him using
the Eigenmike (they are making a collection of typical
'Parma' smbience ounds), so maybe I'll post it some day.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
