Some Thoughts On John Adams (The Composer, NOT The President) – David DeAngelo

Composed to be spoken in even measured tones with each sentence being one full measure of 4/4:

Minimal-minimal-minimal-minimal.
Mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini.
Minimal-minimal-minimal-minimal.
Mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini.

John, John, John, John,
Mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini.
John, John, John, John,
Mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini.

Adams, Adams, Adams, Adams,
Mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini-mini.
Is not, is not, is not, is not.
Is not, is not, is not, is not

A minimalist composer.
