    SiriusXM's Beatles Channel plays every Beatles song but one: Revolution 9. And that isn't really is a song. It's an eight-and-a-half-minute sound collage put together by John Lennon with some help from George Harrison and Yoko Ono. Matt Marks created an arrangement of Revolution 9 to be performed live. My question is: Why???

    Matt Marks, cutting-edge composer and musician, dies at 38
    New York Times, May 14 2018

    Matt Marks, a composer and musician who was at the epicenter of a diverse community of open-minded artists as a founding member of the contemporary chamber orchestra Alarm Will Sound, died of heart failure May 11 in St. Louis. He was 38.

    As a performer, Marks was known best as a French horn player for Alarm Will Sound, of which he was an integral member. The ensemble has been critically praised and is known for its unusual stylistic breadth and commitment to innovation. When the group ventured further into theatrical concerts and multimedia events, he rose to the occasion as a singer, actor and keyboardist. He also contributed one of the group’s signature pieces: an eerily accurate arrangement for live performers of Revolution 9, the notorious 1968 musique concrète sound collage recorded by the Beatles.

    A diligent musician from 9 years old onward, Marks played in high school bands and pursued his formal education at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, the Royal Academy of Music in London and Stony Brook University on Long Island. Marks co-founded Alarm Will Sound in 2001 and also performed with the International Contemporary Ensemble, Wordless Music Orchestra, the Argento Chamber Ensemble and the Brooklyn Brass Quintet.

    Patricia Morison appeared in dozens of plays and movies during her 80-year career but her biggest success was her role as diva Lilli Vanessi in Kiss Me Kate, which opened on Broadway in 1948 and ran for 1,077 performances. Lyricist Cole Porter had heard her sing in Hollywood and personally selected her for the role. She also starred in a London production of Kiss Me Kate that opened in 1951 and ran for 400 performances. "Wunderbar!"
