Update June 2015

As part of our retrospective, we're looking through old posts.  Came across this one, a pleasant surprise as we'd forgotten all about it!  What a gift it was to have a song written, and dedicated to my husband Vic and to little Zoey.
This post originally ran on
September 28, 2007.  I believe (am not sure because my speakers do not work) if you
click on Cadenza Midi at the end of the text, you can hear the song!
(do not know how to remove old comments, sorry)

From September 2007

In early July, my husband found a weblog by this imaginative designer-artist and music composer, Azer Mantessa of Malaysia. He previewed some of his art on his blog, CAT IN THE BAG.
Cat In The Bag is a site mixing the antics of Zoey (the crazy cat of Zoolatry), and an eclectic blend of humor, beautiful photography and art, and political commentary. Recently, he was contacted by the artist/musician Azer and highly complimented that the mathematical computer art pictured here was designed and dedicated to him, and named "Zoey and Me". Not only was he honored with this striking art, but a music composition as well, from the Cadenza Midi Diary (c) of original music. As with the art, the music is entitled "Zoey and Me". Here is the link to one of this extraordinary artists' sites: Muzika Mantessa. This next link, will I hope take you to the site where (speakers on please) you can enjoy the original music composition: Cadenza Midi.
