placing your feet in the sand by the ocean’s edge and watching, feeling, and listening to the waves gradually bury them”

la monte young’s well-tuned piano

I’ve gotten pretty into contemporary classical/minimalist music lately, which sounds kinda nerdy / possibly a shallow affectation, but hopefully dedicated followers of the blog will be swayed by the barrages of staggered loops and unconventional tunings i’ll offer. This first video files definitively under the latter characterization. It’s an improvisation on a piano tuned in 2nds instead of 5ths, I think is how you say it.  I don’t actually know music theory.
