Upcoming Concert: Seattle Improvised Music Festival One-Minute Solos, next Thursday (1/19/12), 8:00 PM

I’m going to be playing in this (thanx Bruce and John!). I’ll be playing the piano for sure, and maybe bring along my hammer dulcimer. Anyone interested in hearing my particular contribution (small as it is – only one minute) to this concert can check it out. Huh? Only one minute? What’s the point? It’s a mosaic of sound – if every piece is only one minute, then what you get is a collection of miniatures, a book of sonic haiku. And since it’s all improvised, some pieces will undoubtedly spin off of the previous pieces (and some won’t). Spontaneous, in the moment, and a lot of fun.

Here’s the vital info:
