Listening to some of George Crumb's Lorca settings, as part of my project of studying Lorca's amazing *after-life* in US and Spanish culture. Joseph Cornell made a film taken from phrase of Lorca's / Guillén's ("Fábula de fuentes"). I love when I discover these magical conjunctions between my favorite artists--like when I discovered Morton Feldman had set to music my favorite text by Samuel Beckett. Things just seem to line up, make sense, making me think my aesthetic world view is totally coherent.

I have to track down this Cornell film.
