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!

Melodies in Search of Chords Episode 52!
The first of any of the shows to hit a full 52 weeks!

So, that is official - one year's worth of Melodies in Search of Chords. We're wrapping up now where all the shows will soon hit their 52-week mark!

This was a Veteran's Day Special and used three setups to make a nice 30-minute performance. Enjoy!

Space Movie Soundtracks Episode 50!
Outer Space From Within Inner Space

Today's show started with the sounds that ended last week's show, which altered the entire dynamic and how things progressed. Quite a nice bit of drama interspersed with vast soundscapes and quiet moments. And of course, some celestial beauty as well! ;-)

Enjoy!

Music for Unprepared Piano Episode 49!
Five Pianos, Four Reverbs

I am clearly allowing the sound of the reverbs being used to guide me somewhat in this episode. The pianos sound fantastic! Inspiring.

Enjoy!

Vastly Experimental Episode 47!
We Went, Very Vastly!

This is a full-on exploration of vastness, yet it is also quite pretty. I think you'll enjoy it.

Music with Words and Pictures Episode 45!
Early Spring in Durham, NC woods - 2009

I recently found a folder of photos I thought I had lost, taken near the Catsburg Bluffs region of Durham, NC by the Eno River (also called the Willie Duke Bluffs). Early April, with friends Alice Zawadsky and Ulana Stuart from the NC Native Plant Society (where I am webmaster). It was a wonderful day! I hope the music does it justice.

Enjoy!

IGANBAYCDTI Episode 48 - Rock Improvisations!
Mid-Term Elections in USA - a few impressions!

I tried very hard to not go all "We Won't Get Fooled Again" like The Who in today's jams, and I think I kept it pretty mellow. Maybe more like a "We MIGHT Get Fooled Again" vibe, I don't know... Anyway - it rocks! Enjoy!

Melodies in Search of Chords - Episode 51
Key word: "Pretty"!

This show started late because I overslept from a morning nap (forgot to turn on my cell phone with the alarm on it...) Once I got there, had a sound issue (trimmed off the video's beginning now). Well, apparently it was worth it, and I must have been having some nice dreams when I woke up!

I liked listening to it even as I was making it - very pretty! :-)

Enjoy!

Wayout Sounds Episode 50 - Sequencer Improvisations!
Some fast, some slow - all energetic this week!

Back I am from WEEKS of illness keeping me down. Well, the energy is coming back, as evidenced by this week's Wayout Sounds sets! Had fun playing - and even my kitty Frisky wanted to be involved in it all!

Enjoy!
