about

This week was an example of things being what they're going to be. Something (maybe an OS update?) changed on my laptop from last week to this week, and some normally reliable software stopped working. By the time I'd figured this out...it was 45 minutes into what would have been a normal performance, so I canceled. These pieces are from the following evening, and are what I had hoped the livestream would be. For everything else that was going on, Music did appear for this one.

This collection is dedicated to Russ Van Rooy.

Thank you for listening!
