50 years ago, it was actually a Sunday and I watched Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin take a giant leap for mankind. I was 9. It was an amazing moment that has never ever left me, even though the technical feat of landing a 1st stage (or two of them) is somewhat more amazing now.
I don’t actually have any equipment in my studio that old, although the 2600 comes within a few years. It’s probably a good thing too. Because I’m not going to play a celebration of the moon landing anyway. Everybody else is doing that this week.
The Ephemeras are more about moods and vignettes describing emotions of the moment, and I might try to describe a few emotions that crop up on big anniversaries, or more likely I will let my mind wander a bit and describe the summer’s heat, or the feel of a summer shower (we’ve had a lot of those past few days). I’ve been developing some ideas out and we’ll see how they work together to make up two hours.
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
