Brightness at Noon continued

Riddle

"Midnight in the Garden continued," a post of 12:00 AM July 20, posed the riddle of what the previous day's NY Lottery midday "440" might mean.

A jocular answer was given. Some background for a more serious answer—

Paul Newall, “Kieślowski’s Three Colours Trilogy”

“Julie recognises the music of the busker outside playing a recorder as that of her husband’s. When she asks him where he heard it, he replies that he makes up all sorts of things. This is an instance of a theory of Kieślowski’s that ‘different people, in different places, are thinking the same thing but for different reasons.’ With regard to music in particular, he held what might be characterised as a Platonic view according to which notes pre-exist and are picked out and assembled by people. That these can accord with one another is a sign of what connects people, or so he believed.”

In honor of Wye Jamison Allanbrook, author of Rhythmic Gesture in Mozart, we note that 440 is Concert A.

Allanbrook died on July 15. See this journal on that date—

Angels in the Architecture,
Happy Birthday, and
Brightness at Noon.
