(for Daniel Goode)
Place: New Hampshire.
Comments: A general recipe and
description of the previous canons and ideas for future canons, for
realize freely. FVC #13 was written
initially for talks at Columbia University and Brooklyn College, and in
preparation for work on the Cold Blue CD. It was distributed at those

own works. To date, a number of composers have done so, including,
Zelenz, Bo Bell, Ross Craig, Kyoko Kobayashi, Bruno Ruviaro, Stefan
Christian Jaksjo, Rizwan Mahmud, Masaki Kubo, Nick Didkovsky, Daniel
Nathan Davis (the latter three are on the Cold Blue CD, the Bell and

There is a new CD on Pogus called DIY Canons, which contains these
pieces and others.
FVC#13 includes #14 (“Kid Canon”),#15 (“Shape Note Canon”), and #18 (“Trio Canon”) as examples.
