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.

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

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.

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.
