It is now dark in the morning when I get up. The sunrise has been later and later and finally is well past when I get up, showered, dressed and check my email, phones and wander to the bus stop. The leaves here have not turned yet – that’s in another month or so – and they are not at all like the New England fall color that made me love autumn there. But the slowing of growth, the beginning of autumn where the plants die back or go to sleep, has unmistakably begun.

Musically, this has been a very busy summer and with the change of season, my creative mood adjusts. I’ve been working on today’s Ephemera with my thoughts turned to my emotional reaction to autumn, which every year contains both hope and longing. I hope you have a chance to listen in, if only for part of it, there will be a few different vignettes to paint, in music, my mood at this time.

As is typical for a 2 hour show, much of the studio will be in use, depending on where in the programme I am. After having pulled some of the pieces out to go to 3eee in Portugal, I have the chance to put things back a little differently and try some different approaches.

As usual it’s 2 hours of more or less improvised music, performed solo.

The show starts at 3PM PDT/6PM/EDT/22:00 BST/23:00 WST
