Wow, this is a wild ride that you will need to approach with a full open mind and adventurously open ears! With the erudition of a musicologist, Dave Lake is interested in all facets of the music scene. So in his exploration of my journey to becoming a composer it made total sense to add music from my early downtown NYC ensembles, Zone and Hizohi into the mix. Then moving on to some of my first notated instrumental duos and on to some pivotal orchestral pieces! It’s a journey for the adventurous for sure! On WRUU Contemporary Classics 107.5 FM Savannah, GA.
(The core Zone ensemble was bass Mitch McNeil, percussion Mustafa Ahmed, sax Charles Compo, guitar Mark Worthy, Susan Smith Compo adding some occasional vocals & me on a very basic early Casio keyboard. The Roulette performance is a duo gig with vocalist Jill Burton and me on synth. Music tracks also feature 2Flutes: Pamela Sklar & Laura Falzon; violinist Moonkyung Lee, & pianist Martha Locker; cellist Petr Nouzovský, conductor Petr Vronsky & the Moravian Philharmonic; and a shout out to cellist, Carmine Miranda and PARMA Recordings.)
