For those interested -

I am currently traveling by sailboat (Singlehanding 33' Gaff rigged cutter) from NY harbor to Melbourne, FL.

I am currently close to the SC-GA border.

I am blogging the trip and creating musical sketches as I go along. I seldom have enough Internet access to post to Contrebombarde, but since this evening I do, I will upload some of the pieces. In general, they are quasi-improvisatory, for HW organ, synthesizers and found audio.

The salt marsh at first seems a vast expanse of flat uniformity. Long grass. No trees. Little sign of animal life. But with patience it reveals itself. Birds, fish, reptiles, insects - a complex ecosystem, perfectly in balance.
This piece is impressionistic rather than programmatic. If anything I try to imbue a fairly static form and harmonic structure with undercurrents of subtle motion.
