I had been reading the excellent book Gödel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid, and I became very interested in the idea of musical palindromes. For this piece, I used the image of the Penrose Stair for inspiration, as an homage to both the work of M.C. Esher, and also this wonderful book.

In the video below, take a sneak peak as I rehearse the timbre trills and bariolage bowing that is featured in the strings. These techniques are very unique to string instruments, and are very difficult to replicate in a computer demo. In the bonus content, check out the original computer demo of the piece to hear how much the live instruments shape the sound of the piece.

Get the Album first

The first 3 tracks on the new album will be released on 3.20.2020, but the rest of the album will not be available until this summer on the streaming platforms and stores. These platforms favor singles over albums for playlist placement.

So I will be sharing the entire album for email subscribers in a 7 day album experience. (Don't worry, it's just about building a community, not about spamming you with emails!).

On album release day, you will receive 1 email a day for 7 days that leads you to a behind the scenes look that details what each piece means, how it was written, and how it was recorded. You can download the high res audio (available nowhere else), stream the music, look at the scores, and learn how it was recorded.

Thank you for joining me on this musical journey! Check your email inbox (and Junk Mail!) for the Welcome email.
