On Thursday, November 14 I will be performing this piano piece by my friend, composer Stan Link, at "Indeterminacies" at Zeitgeist Gallery in Nashville. As you can see, the notation (of Stan’s own invention) is highly unusual. It has been a challenge to try and turn it into something resembling music! If you’re interested in seeing more of the score and and an explanation of how it works, I talk about it a bit at the beginning of this video:

I continue to make videos for the YouTube Vinyl Community, but have neglected to post them here on the blog. In fact, I have been neglecting the blog altogether lately – something I hope to rectify soon…
