Another progress recording, with another month or so of practice and a 16-day practice streak. The concert where I am playing this is next week. I'm hoping to lock in a little more speed between now and then (although I note I seem to have…read more

This is a recording of the first time I have played Ludivico Einaudi's "I Due Fuimi" all the way through. It includes numerous errors & slight pauses but I managed to keep going and finish it and after MANY months of practice that feels…read more

This is a track I've been working on for quite a while so I am glad to finally have it out of my head. I have a kind of love/hate relationship with time and its humble functionary, the clock. Ticking, in particular, is something I am ambivalent…read more

A piece of experimental whimsy. I took a nice piano loop from the Logic library and utterly destroyed it with The Finger. What's interesting about this to me is that I was not playing the MIDI driving The Finger but using Elysium to do so. Here…read more

It's been so long since I've made any music I've kind of forgotten how. I was just noodling about and thought I had a sound I liked so I bounced it out quite quickly. This one is all made with Reaktor and Boscomac's Air Piano ensemble, plus…read more

I have no idea why I thought “Edward Lear” and “Ring Modulator” in the same moment. Probably I shouldn’t have.

Very nice - glad you’re back to making music. I’m also a big fan of Permut8, but was unaware of Boscomac’s page; thanks for including that info.
