words about music and a best-of

Tokafi, a fine international web journal of sound art, contemporary composition and improvisation, has just published some brief thoughts of mine on space and timbre as elements in improvisation.

And I’m delighted to see that The Rationale for a Space Telescope, the If, Bwana release that includes my bass on a few tracks, has been named one of Avant Music News‘s best releases of 2014. A well-deserved tip o’ the hat and bow to the artistry of Al Margolis. Augmented Landscapes, my collaboration with Chris Lynn, was given an honorable mention.
