Of course… most of my music is not on-line…
Dave Matthews recently put up a few items from my concert late last year with the vocalist Sarah Wilmot. One of the absolute joys of an improvised spontaneous gig, is that no-one knows what is going on … including the performers. In Duet for One, I am assuming that we are about to perform a duo, and Sarah is assuming it is a shakuhachi solo. I make ‘offers’ to Sarah, who has her eyes closed, in listening mode… I was structuring it as a conversation, but only ended up talking with the seagulls … (and momentarily the toilet cistern, that happened to be at the same pitch I was playing) and I quite liked the result. Thanks Sarah! Without you there, this piece would not have come into existence.
