Microeconomics, featuring Ben Redwine on clarinet, Jon Matis on piano, and myself on double bass, is now officially out.
Microeconomics is a set of music clarinetist Ben Redwine pianist Jon Matis and I recorded live in the studio in February 2015. It officially drops on June 30, but you can download a free track from All About Jazz. The track, Microeconomics Part 3a Graphics 5, is a section of our realization of a graphic score I brought with me to the session.
Last year, the Greek new music/improvisation ensemble 6daEXIt solicited compositions from a number of composers. I was fortunate enough to have been one of them. They’ve just uploaded their realization of The Principle of Paradox, a combination verbal/graphic score that I wrote for them. It’s a gratifying interpretation that embodies the score’s concern with timbre and space, and I thank them for bringing the piece to life in such a dynamic way.
