Oh, I am in such a hurry to get to a meeting! I did not explain myself well.
My tip of the hat to Mantle Hood is from the full title of this work in progress: Ancient Andromeda, a movie of The VENERABLE DARK CLOUD

Thanks, I just heard BAGAN for the second time. The first time, you put me over a hurdle. I have had McPhee's Magnus Opus in reach for decades and occasionally would enjoy reading it. Before that, Mantle Hood's effort got me trembling. I even had some experience playing with the gamelan at the Indonesian embassy.
I am a film/video maker for more than 40 years. Spend very little time promoting my work since I seem to have so much to create. In the process of making a simple, but wonderful work.
I first called this work, Ancient City, in honor of BAGAN. But, now, I also am calling it in honor of Dr. Hood: Ancient Andropeda.
The switch when I came to realize, once more, the ears are much more intelligent than eyes. I consider what I am doing is similar to Woody Guthrie whistling Beethoven's 92nd.
So, again, Thanks !
