Banned Rehearsal 249 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Aaron Keyt [February 1991]
Begins with righteous plunk on toy piano. Throughout: a microscopic attention to intonation, liberated intonation, bending cymbal pitch by angle of stick. If there's enough of it, it must be real. (Quick Quaker Quotes). If there's enough of it, and it's night, it must be surreal. On radio intonations of Desert Storm, Dark Hole. When all the candles go out the tape will be over.

Banned Rehearsal 425 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Anna K, Neal Kosály-Meyer [May 1996]
Bells of various whistle and guitar through synth (wahwahtech). This band is at work on stuff, dragging a muck rake into low sinking murkwood. CONCH! Deep bass blow. Relax the grip.
Ms. Found In A Bottle - Keith Eisenbrey
A composite 20 years in the making, digitally recorded textsound (Confessions of a Polyphonist) with aged magnetic tape of synthesized sound (the rotted version of AKU). Wobbly flangiform synthesizary diphthongs.

Being, Hearing, Knowing Now - Stephen Dembski - Christopher Taylor, piano
Each sound resets, proceeds only from the immediate. As memory intrudes we don't go back. Back just comes back.
Banned Rehearsal 785 - Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Neal Kosály-Meyer [February 2011]
How: to design an attack envelope for piano reverb.
How: sounds persists.
What: A bestiary with bell kit beast guide.
What: Gathers at the bottom of the beaker.
What: beings to react, and converse.
Your Face - Denise Glover [from Pathways]
A song can be a face of word time pitch time melody time tine time. Is what it says.

Die Kunst der Fuge, Contrapunctus XIII - J. S. Bach - Lionel Rogg, organ
Triplets trip the trap. Bits, hints, and teasers.
Die Jahreszeit "Winter" - Haydn - Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Karl Böhm, Gundula Janowitz, Peter Schreier, Martti Talvela, Wiener Singverein
". . . lange dauert." Held back, even the dire chorus building forces underground. Rhythmic hiccups. Nonmotion, a hurried up slowing down. Waiting for, not being at.
In Session at the Tintinabulary

Remlinger Farms Steam Train Ride - Keith Eisenbrey
At a corporate picnic out in the country we took a miniature steam train ride. Too many conversations to post in public.

Gradus 316 - Neal Kosály-Meyer
Some are interior spaces, the caverns of swiss cheese. Some are incrustations, barnacles. Some are iron rigid bars.
