"Live from the Cafe Annapura" is an actual liver performance, outside the confines of my home studio, with a smal audience. The Cafe Annapurna was a small Nepalese restaurant in Tallahassee and I performed there a few times. On this particular occasion, I took the recording devices and the computer and recorded the show. This is the hour.
"A Beautiful Tattoo" is part staring a person's tattoo and the title of a work of computer generated art. I'm not much on ever getting a tattoo myself, but some are quite lovely. This is a jam piece, improvs all the way.
"Let's Go For A Swim" is based on rythyms plucked out on muffled strings. The different patterns blend together to make a long sense of submersion.
"Those Little Men In The Ceiling Tiles Never Stop Working" I have no idea how many remixes I did on this one. I went for the subtle approach to the "situation."
"The Web Construction Kit" A piece based on a study about the effects of drugs on spiders. It's a great study, look it up. The music presented here is one of those rare ones that I thought came off very well. When I listen to it, the changes are subtle, but when I jump around in the piece, or leave it and return, ut changes.
"Rescuing Andromeda" I was totally overwhelmed by the artwork of Gustav Dore. The music in this piece is a journey through bits and pieces of the story "Orlando Furioso". Discover it, if you will.
