Tuberculosis in the Boards-Bronchitis in the Drywall is a mighty strange title for a very odd piece of music in 16 notes per octave. I would like to thank Cryptic Ruse for providing percussion, odd bits, production and spooky ending fitting the ghosts still wandering around a 19th century sanitarium I provided piano in response to a call for collaborators by Cryptic.
What I have Done (15 edo version) A poem of mine read by Bethan Mathis from the album “Bethan Reads”.

“When Flight 11 struck the North Tower, Praimnath started to evacuate from his 81st floor office in the South Tower, but he returned when the building’s security guards told everyone the South Tower was secure, and they should return to their office. He did not realize, at that point, that a plane had struck the North Tower. Soon after reentering his office, he saw a United Airlines jet heading directly towards him. Right before impact, he dove under his desk and exclaimed, “Lord, I can’t do this! You take over!” The left wing sliced through his office and became lodged in a door twenty feet from him. Praimnath was bruised and covered in debris after the crash which left him stuck and unable to escape on his own.” Cited from Wikipedia I suggest you read the rest of the story.
The Faith of Stanley Praimnath is for Sound-In. Seeing how this week’s event started on the anniversary of 9/11 I wanted to write a piece that made a statement about this tragic event. In researching for a photo I found a real life event of one man’s ordeal that day that says more than any photo.

Speedy is loosely themed on a short story from the Issac Asimov I, Robot series.
