Savanoia
It's a song... many ways to listen.

2017-09-07
Savanoia... It's not a word, just a noise you can make with your mouth. I was noodling around and ended up with a sorta swell opening and then became distracted with other things, leaving the intro collecting dust on the virtual shelf. Some time later I wanted to to write something with more repetition. I had been listening to some drone-type stuff and thought it was kind of cool. "I should give that a try."   ...Read more

Also known as the spelling Les Barricades Mysterieuses This is a harpsichord piece from 1717 by the French composer Fran├žois Couperin. I arranged it for 8 wind instruments. For some reason I used the spelling from the original music for this release.   ...Read more

It was late September 2005. I was walking through Monticello, Idaho. Small town, warm evening. Almost no traffic sound. I could hear kids playing a few blocks away... dogs barking on the other side of town.It really sounded great, so I recorded it. A number of years later it was time to start the next thing. I had just finished a few things that were quick with really tight timing. So I wanted to take on a "Loose Hand" piece. And then I wanted it to sound like it was recorded in a living room with the windows & doors open. Thank you Montpelier!   ...Read more

It's a song... many ways to listen.

Imagine yourself walking down the street, minding your own kind of business. Perhaps you are one of those who like to pull on their ear as they walk, or stroke the soft fur there. Perhaps you like to pause now and then and twitch your whiskers at everything. Down the street you hear the "thump-de-dump".   ...Read more

I wrote this one while in San Francisco... Nice little town, I love it here. Winters are particularly nice... then again Autumn & Spring are pretty good too. San Francisco is a great walking town. I took a lot of long walks at pretty much any time of day or night, often with a camera.   ...Read more

It is serious business piloting these steam ferries around the San Francisco Bay... shoveling coal, watching gages & twiddling valves... the fellows have to hustle to makes sure everything runs on time. For the passengers it is a different story. They arrive in 3/4 time, serious in their demeanor, on their way to work in the Tall Buildings. They are thinking about the upcoming deals and business of the day. They might not be shoveling coal but it's still a work day.   ...Read more

This one is actually part of a larger suite that I call Parlor Passages. It is intended to recall the frenetic energy energy of a children's playground. It is quite short, just over a minute a bit of brightness to be inserted in a longer ensemble. The Mondrian-esque artwork.... Well I think it represents everything about a playground. Blue & white for a Summer sky with fluffy clouds. Green for grass, brown for the dirt and red for the skinned knees and whatnot.   ...Read more

Ah, Teddy's Tango... Exciting, dynamic... People seem to like it.... and you an dance to it! There is a softer interlude in the middle where you can make closer passes with your partner. Like all Tangos this one entangles the passion, romance and mixed messages that are love.   ...Read more
