Transformation Of Perception Revisited

As most of you know, I was fortunate to perform a work on the Kestrel 920 during a lecture event at The Arizona Senior Academy, nestled in the foothills of Rincon Mountains east of the city. DOWNLOAD SOLO TRACK. The show, part of the Chamber Music PLUS Arizona Cultural Forum series, had a turnout which included a diverse group of people with a life-long passion for sound and music. Following the sound sculpture and a brief question and answer period, I encouraged the audience to come up and give the Kestrel 920 a try. Which they did. Enthusiastically. Much too often life and art is compartmentalized. This is for the young. This is for the old. This is for those who are neither of the above. And so on. And so forth. And etc. And blather. But at the ASA gig I was honored to see everyone's enthusiasm and interest in sound/music/instruments transcend that artificial barrier. Post gig I think I may have enjoyed the subsequent conversations with the audience about as much as the opportunity to create a sound sculpture. There was also a fun opportunity to do a duet with Steven Romaniello on Theremin and see how the two instruments meshed without a net. DOWNLOAD DUO TRACK. Much thanks to Harry Clark and James Reel of Chamber Music PLUS Southwest for pulling this all together and including the Kestrel 920 in their vision of transformation. Something is going on indeed...
