I’m not doing a show about the Coronation, which you might have heard was in the news today. Charles and I share a birthday, although 11 years apart, and although I have some respect for the man, the Royals are kinda boring to me. So long live the King. I do wish him well.
The Ephemera, meanwhile, should be kinda fun, I’ve been modifying a bunch of parts to develop some vignettes that saw some airtime 13 months ago. Definitely not sounding like it did then, and I’m still rehearsing it. I actually spent a couple extra hours trying to make some sense out of my third Mac, which is filling its disk with Spitfire libraries. This seems to have got somewhat sorted, at least, for now. More to do there.
The series is still an exploration of improvisation, although I’ve built up a small arsenal of little pictures to try to illustrate my feelings while I play for you. It’s still all me, although the studio changes around me, and my moods change in spite of me, and my emotions get tugged around by my own music.
I hope you listen in and share in the journey, my little stories painting scenes via my music.
The show starts at 3PM PDT/6PM/EDT/23:00 BST/00:00 WST
