Here’s a recording from a brief visit with Patrick at the Embassy Suites in L.A. in November 2012. He talks about meeting Stephanie, using her money to buy a harpsichord, which led to the origins of the music festival they built together. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
Here’s a conversation (about 8-1/2 minutes long) from 16 November 2011. We talk about Carl’s music and other things. The background noise is a bit heavy so the transcription may not be entirely accurate. You can listen to the recording, however. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
In 2017, Patrick and I talked about the making of Four Last Songs, a movie very, very loosely based on Patrick and Stephanie and directed by their friend Francesca Joseph. I started recording the conversation with two recorders, but as it turns out the overlap was imperfect. As a result, I have four separate recordings […]
This is a video recording of the view from the restaurant and scenic turnoff on the road to Puig Major and on to Pollenca. Patrick narrates a bit, describing the watch towers that ringed the island, each in site of the next. It was a beautifully clear day, the 25th of November 2011. My camera […]
A short conversation with Christine about Patrick’s October 2014 visit.
Here’s a conversation with Patrick about learning how to really listen to music. It was recorded in his living room on 19 November 2011, near 11 PM. PM: ….. was a great moment for me ……… a few years back, I went to, to hear Rostropovich conducting. I think it’s called the Leningrad Symphony of […]
I found several versions of this letter from December 2006 to March 2010, but the differences were mostly cosmetic. This is pasted from the 2010 version. Around St. Patrick´s day 1976, I left Tampa with my five year old daughter. We returned to Mallorca where she was born. Dear Stephanie. You always believed in something […]
Here’s another letter to Patrick I found in the backup (Planck) of a backup (Fourier) of a backup (GWG6) folder, originally a XyWrite file dated 20 February 1988. It includes a challenge to help me find a job in Spain, and to develop an app to transmit music between computers via phone connections. (Of course, […]
Conversation about a drawing, and Norman.
Here’s a little recording I just stumbled upon. Patrick, Christine, and I were enjoying breakfast at the Busy Bee Diner in Ventura so there are occasional interruptions from our server in the audio. It was 8 October 2014 and Patrick had just finished his visit with me. We were on our way to the Santa […]
Another recording from October 2014. Patrick talks about line drawings and a children’s book he’d written, drawn, and lost. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
Several years before Patrick died he began sending me manuscripts and documents, boxes of them. During a 2014 visit we discussed these a bit, then shifted gears slightly to my own collection. This is that short recording. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
Patrick begins this 2011 recording with thoughts of how to tell his life story and finishes with the way his mom encountered her husband’s mistress. A maroon 1946 Ford is also mentioned. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
Aunt Sue sent this poem (author unknown) to Patrick a few months before he died. It looks like one of those memes that gets passed around, but I understand the sentiment. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
Patrick saved this letter from his sister Sue dated 30 Sep 1993. How long ago it all seems now. Most of it will be interesting only to family and genealogists but some of you may appreciate it. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
