A Little Midnight Music: Saturday, May 8 | 9pm

Music of Meredith Monk, Arnold Schoenberg, and Valgeir Sigurðsson is included in this episode.

If there’s one thing fairy tales and fantasy novels have taught us, it’s that there is something magical about midnight.

That’s always when the portal to another world closes, when humans turn to monsters, and when monsters wreak havoc. If you have any magical business to take care of, midnight is always the deadline. No matter what, Cinderella’s carriage always turns back into a pumpkin at midnight.

On this Saturday’s episode of Second Inversion, we’re taking a little moonlit stroll. We’ll hear music inspired by dark skies, starry nights, and the mysterious lure of midnight.

To listen, tune in to KING FM on Saturday, May 8 at 9pm PT.

  1. Thank you for your efforts. I couldn’t help but notice that George Crumb’s Midnight piece was one chorus of Thelonius Monk’s “‘Round Midnight”. Was Monk even credited? Again, though; thank you for your support for living music!

    • Good ear! Yes that piece was inspired by Thelonious Monk’s ‘Round Midnight. We ran out of time to mention it in the episode but will definitely have to include that fact next time!
