What's been playing lately?

Update: 1/22/15

Live: Chicago Symphony. Elgar: In the South (Alessio). Tone poem with a lovely viola melody in one section. Written on an Italian vacation, reportedly the composer's "sunniest work. Beethoven: "Emperor" Concerto. His more raucous and fun Fifth, though no less serious than anything else he composed. A lifetime favorite for these ears. Rachmaninoff: Symphonic…

2014 in Review: Afterimages and Transitions

Posted on December 30, 2014 at 11:00am 0 Comments

It's that time of year again... time for the dreaded Year-End Review. An attempt to make sense of 2014 and formulate an idea of where 2015 might lead.

I'm a little embarrassed to note that I didn't even do this last year! But 2013 was a quiet year, and I didn't work on anything solo. I recorded my parts for The Rage of Reason (see below) and Afterimages (from Memory Palace, below), and arranged my…

I saw your name in passing when I was cruising through the site just now, and I laughed at myself a bit, as when I came to this site I didn`t know anything about ambient and I didn`t realize that eyes cast down was a play on the shoegaze genre...gosh, I was such a newbie! LOL I Hope you are well
