Gradus (269) for Fux, Tesla, and Milo the Wrestler - Neal Kosály-Meyer
Chapel Performance Space, Good Shepherd Center, Seattle

each ovoid mark was made to memorialize a played note, relative size representing locally perceived dynamic of attack. the vertical marks are the boundaries between rungs. Neal's score for the evening is printed below. Stop by in a week or so and the graphic won't collide with the side bar.

Guitar Hell - Incredibly Strange Guitar - Pete Comley

Post Fripp, post progpunk (with undertones of Charles Dodge), all mastered with that FarTooClose® digital feel. Picaresque, but complicated by sudden interruptions. Getting his jollies with wrecked up sound.

On September 23, 2002, I wrote: "aside from being generally entertaining, what's fun about this is the flatfooted gadgetry of it. All segues are transparently what they are - no fooling here. It just is garbage."

Invention in C Minor - Billy Joel

Utterly unremarkable.

Vampire Mustache - Steaming Wolf Penis [from The Funhouse Comp Thing]

Its bald assertion of presence is as though it were clinging by fingernail to the edge of a precipice.

Donne III.19 -  Benjamin Boretz

as gently done as begun

an eternal residue suspended in an interior, limitless space.

Felicissomo sono - Gesualdo - Consort of Musicke, Anthony Rooley

the commentary seeps in the window opened between D and E-flat.

Konzert in D Major BWV 1050 - Bach - Festival Strings Lucerne, Rudolf Baumgartner, Aurele Nicolete, Josef Suk, Christiane Jaccottet

Processes ripen to states. From states emerge processes.

Keyboard Sonata in C Wq. 48 #5 - CPE Bach - Miklos Spanyi
Keyboard Sonata in D Hob. XIV:5 - Haydn - Christine Schornsheim

In Session at the Tintinabulary

Duet 150614 - Keith Eisenbrey
Going into this session I was uncertain what I wanted to pair with clavichord. Among the most intriguing possibilities were washtub bass and tin whistle. In the end I did my best to play both at the same time.

Gradus 268 - Neal Kosály-Meyer

Chapel Elevator 150619 - Keith Eisenbrey

I had a free moment before Neal's Gradus performance to record the sound of Seattle's most sonorously engaging elevator rides.
