From AnAccordion, The Double Run, a new music track and video.
Clairvoyance, the first recording by the superb improvisational group Clairvoyance Trio, is now out on Amirani Records. The trio is Gianni Mimmo on soprano saxophone, Adriano Orru on double bass, and Silvia Corda on piano. The music is freely improvised and sublime, and I’m proud to have been asked to write the liner note.
Many thanks to Chris De Chiara of Avant Music News for the kind review of Transparent Points on Four Axes.
And, Open Set I, a track from the album based on a graphic score of mine, has been included on a new compilation released by the Unexplained Sounds Group.
An excerpt of Sunday evening’s performance of December 1952 will be played tonight on Matt Testa’s Coda show on WOWD-LP, Takoma Park’s community FM station. Tune in at 6 PM on 94.3 FM or stream at takomaradio.org. (And if you aren’t already a regular listener of Matt’s show, you really should be…)
In the new issue of Perfect Sound Forever, I have a piece on composer Makoto Nomura’s Root Music–its concept, execution, aesthetic, and what it’s like to realize it. (My recording of one version of the piece can be heard here. That performance is part of a current project of recording works for solo double bass by contemporary experimental composers.)

With thanks to everyone who played and listened.
