Well here we are at the cusp of the Summer Solstice. I have to say I love this time of year, even if the birds are waking me up at 4am and we’re in a heat wave and it hasn’t rained in a few weeks so the garden is needing attention. Still, I won’t complain about weather for once.
The vignettes for this show were composed just under a year ago except for the main theme which is about 12 years old now. Seems by this time last year I was really starting to expand on things, maybe it was in preparation for all new themes, which did happen, so I guess this is alright in retrospect. With all Ephemeras a lot is never able to be repeated because it’s made up for that particular Ephemera, this is no exception.
also new idea, instead of filling up my server’s hard disk with hundreds of old shows, I’m going to just post the last 10 in reverse order, so if you miss a show you can hear it. They won’t be up longer than 20 weeks that way.
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
