Two-Week Blogging Break

Starting today, I’ll be taking a short, holiday break from blogging.  I’ll resume on January 3rd. Happy holidays, thanks for reading!

Taking a Break!

If you’ve been reading my blog lately, you’ll know that I’ve been reading and writing about Stravinsky’s Poetics of Music.  So far, I’ve written fifteen posts! A considerable amount of energy went into these.  I have a few more posts in the works, but I need to take a break and come back to them […]

Recording Studio Pics

I was in the studio (The Driveshed) on April 21 recording the new album.  I was fortunate enough to play on one of the best pianos in Toronto (from Remenyi). Here are some pictures, check out the signatures inside!

A New Project

I have a number of books on my shelf that I’ve been meaning to read or meaning […]

Blog Upgrade

I know it looks the same, but the software running this page is completely different. I’ve upgraded to WordPress! If you use RSS, please switch to this feed.  If your website links to my blog, you’ll have to change the link. I’ve added a few lists to the left sidebar including popular posts, categories and […]

Facebook Purge

It’s getting out of hand; I’m averaging one “stranger” request every day. Not from people who are interested in me, mostly from people interested in promoting themselves. Along with their requests, I’m receiving their event invites, multiple page invites and desperate messages with links to their music. So in two weeks, I’ll be erasing my Facebook […]
