Live Music Schedule
I've gone ahead and committed to doing a daily performance at 12:30 PM EST on YouTube Live Streaming, starting Friday, Nov. 3rd, 2017. If you like what you hear, or just support the idea, please consider subscribing!

Fridays - Music for Unprepared Piano
Taking piano everywhere I can think of taking it, through long improvisations
Saturdays - Space Movie Soundtracks
(for Space Movies Not Yet Made)
Slow, evolving landscapes of audio bliss-making
Sundays - Way Out Sounds!
Exploration of one-finger wonders, primitive synth sounds, and heaps of reverb
Mondays - Melodies In Search Of Chords
Striving to have melodies with complex chord changes as accompaniment
Tuesdays - It's Got A Nice Beat And You Can Dance To It
Using sequences, rhythmic patches, and drum machines - going into jam-land!
Wednesdays - Vastly Experimental
This is going to see where pushing the knobs to the extremes can take us
Thursdays - Music with Words and Pictures
This is improvisation inspired by poetry (as lyrics) and pictures

This will continue, every single day, for as long as it seems like it is working.

This is a "conceptual art" piece. The music will naturally vary in quality, but the idea is to put new music out there every day in a public performance setting, so the challenge of there actually being listeners present is there to bolster quality, but believe me - I'm not merely out to please everyone, and this will go far-out-there often. However, it will usually be interesting at the least. See you there!

IGANBAYCDTI Episode 36 - Rock Improvisations!
Short and Sweet - only 26 minutes - but fun and with FLUTE!

I had this idea of doing all organ, then thought I'd add some flute, then considered a bit of piano stuff, then... well, a lot of variety was packed into this one! Enjoy! :-)

Melodies in Search of Chords Episode 37 - Melodic Improvisations!
The key-word for today's theme might be "somberesque". :-)

I must have had a full-length dramatic movie running in my head during this show. Soaring moments punctuated by dramatic and deep insightful periods abound. Very pretty, but also quite introspective and sometimes even a bit tragic. Well, that's music for you! Enjoy!

(Thanks to +Andrew Hatchett in today's live chat for suggesting "somberesque"!)

Wayout Sounds Episode 37 - Sequencer Improvisations!
Added a strong backbeat this week to glue things together!

I finally sat down and did some simple drum programming on my Native Instruments Maschine Jam unit and made two patterns that I employed to keep all of us from losing the backbeat/downbeat during these complex layers of sequences. It helped me a lot and added a nice layer of energy, so you'll likely see me do more of that in the future! :-)

This one really rocks, in other words.

Enjoy!

Space Movie Soundtracks (for space movies not yet made)
Episode 37 - Space Improvisations!
I squeezed an entire movie into this one, I think!

This one even has an opening titles track, and a deep-space and brooding ending. Drama Deluxe! A fun, deeply spacey soundtrack this week! :-)

Enjoy!

Music for Unprepared Piano Episode 37 - Piano Improvisations
Went from quiet to pretty raucous in this set!

I did about a half hour of pretty quiet, dreamy and sentimental stuff. But then, out came the dynamics! So, this is a pretty wide ranging group of pieces, with a different piano for each set, pretty much.

Enjoy!

Music with Words and Pictures Episode 35 - Improvisations
We have beautiful pictures of animals by Trisa Fairchild this week!

I do love animals, and pictures of them extract quite a range of emotions and feelings from me, as you can hear in this rather sentimental set of impressions.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and the music I've created with them! :-)

Vastly Experimental Episode 34 - Vast Improvisations!
This was one where I really wove melodies and effects together a lot!

Though the stream went bad almost right away (after holding up for a two hour pre-stream testing period!!!) we just kept at it till it behaved again and finished out the show. Some odd jumps in the video are where I turned off the stream from this end to send it a fresh one, which I had to do three times to get a good one.

Annoying - I want this to stop! It never used to happen. Don't know who to blame.

Either way - enjoy the vastness! :-)

IGANBAYCDTI Episode 35 - Rock Improvisations!
This was cut short by streaming issues, but has some nice stuff!

This one was a little frustrating to see my stream go bad during the show after it had held up during the pre-stream tests for over an hour. I wish I could get to the bottom of that and find out what causes it and how to prevent it!

Either way, the show was fun for the audience, so you'll likely enjoy it also! ;-)
