Cloud of Sound; plus, In Rotation

I've created a profile on SoundCloud to dump off some of my music for your perusal . . . at this point, nothing that I haven't posted before in other places (including here), but it's a nice little sampler all pulled together in one place.  So far it includes a couple duets I did with Bart Galloway (circa 2009 or so), several Hoosier Pete tracks, several Black Kaspar tracks, and a couple Catkillers tracks dating back as far as '94.

Hopefully, I will get some new stuff going this year.  When I do, that is where the samples will be posted.

Still in full-tilt Glenn Gould mania.  Beethoven's piano sonatas are still the favorite, & I'm having fun doing compare and contrast between his Bach and his Berg/Schoenberg/Krenek.  Otherwise,
