Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly
Thursday, April 26, 2007
So, a friend and I went out for a little culture in the middle of the week last evening. We attended the "unofficial" CD launch party for my neighbor (hopefully, soon to be next door neighbor!) and fellow blogger (that many of you know) at An Die Musik.

What a terrific evening! Three of the composers who collaborated on compositions for Brian and whose work he performed were present. Two of them performed with him. A mix of wildly different avant garde contemporary classical compositions, they ranged from a lyrical piano and sax piece based on the short story, Walamai, by Isabele Allende, to a Hip Hop Groove improv session of DJ turntable sounds and sax, to a true blend of what a "conversation" between electronic music generated from stuff in your attic and an instrument might sound like, called "Tourmaline". It was very progressive. I would have loved to have seen some of the sheet music to see how some of the musical contours and "notes" were represented.

Afterwards, everyone headed downstairs to congratulate him, have some wine, buy a CD, and visit with each other. It was just a really cool evening.

Keep an eye on his schedule. He's a busy guy, but if you get a chance to hear him play here in town or in NYC - make sure you check him out. You won't be dissapointed.
