It was about 10 years ago that I started playing the Ephemera series, originally on, but after a long hiatus (about 5 years) I picked the series back up on RadioSpiral. It’s still, to me, quite a challenge to go for two hours more or less off the cuff. That’s even with my studio, although sometimes I think I’d be happy just playing piano for 2 hours.

Patterns, repeating series of events, or a visual series, or even moods, are prevalent more than chaos. It can be argued by some that there really isn’t any chaos, there’s just a lack of readily discernable pattern.

Anyway, music, obviously, is made of patterns, at least mine is. So this is sort of an acknowledgement of that. I could talk about the weather instead, but it’s in a fairly consistent pattern too.

As is typical for a 2 hour show, much (or almost all) of the studio will be in use, depending on where in the programme I am. I’ve got some patterns set up.

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

The show starts at 3PM PST/6PM/EST/23:00 GMT/00:00 WET

If you’ve missed shows or want to explore some of the past Ephemera performances, you can find them at which has the past few years of them. Beware, they’re all 2 hours long so there’s a lot to listen to (maybe 120 hours or so).

Thanks for supporting RadioSpiral. We all appreciate it so much.
