Episode 105: The Mann Bowie w/ Drew Hitz & Don Hart

EP105 16×9

In Episode 105 we’re joined by Mike’s Song Second Jam Ambassador, Andrew Hitz (@drewphish) and composer Don Hart (@hartmus) to discuss the wild, excessive, and maniacal take on David Bowie from June 24, 1995 at The Mann Music Theater in Philadelphia, PA. Using the jam as a leaping off point we highlight three composers who provide thematic insights into the music Phish was experimenting with in the Summer of 1995. 

In addition, we hear from Don Hart, who has worked with Trey to transcribe pieces like Time Turns Elastic and Guyute, alongside offering string arraignments on Sigma Oasis. Don provides insights into the world of orchestration while offering specific through-lines between the band’s abstract experiments in Summer ’95 with the late-19th/early-20th century composers that so influenced Trey. 

Songs featured in this episode are:

Modest Mussorgsky: “The Old Castle”

Igor Stravinsky: “The Rite Of Spring”

Bela Bartok: “Concerto For Orchestra”
