For those who aren't currently following my audio works, I have been at work for over a year now on a series of "commissioned audio" pieces ordered by, and specifically tailored to, the needs of individual listeners.
I've posted information about the most recent of these on the gallery page relating to these works. The piece in question - yet another collaboration of sorts with the inestimable Rachael Arrighi - is titled "Un Amore di Oggi," and is a journey into the genre of "confessional" music without - I hope - the sort of overly melodramatic trappings that normally accompany that kind of work. If Rachael consents to having the entire piece published elsewhere, or chooses to do so herself, I think you'll find this to be a fairly unique piece by my standards.
Oh, and- those who have been visiting the TBWB Typepad page since December already know of the loss of my valued friend and influence, Zbigniew Karkowski.
Although I did pen a brief eulogy here, I am much happier with the lengthy career-retrospective essay I wrote while Zbigniew was still alive. Followers of my news pages over the past couple of years will know that I planned to publish this in a DVD / book package edited by Zbigniew, although this still hasn't come to fruition, and - though there are claims that it will happen sometime in June of this year - I no longer want to withhold this information at a time when people are curious to know more about Zbigniew's life legacy.
Therefore, I've posted it on Zbigniew's artist page at the Spanish SONM site, where there will be an ever-growing archive of his works, writings, and past activities.
I've also contributed a new track for the massive "No Bullshit" tribute compilation that will feature works by friends of Zbigniew's, composed solely from his own back catalog of sound materials. This is entitled "KokoroZashi" and I feel is one of the best, most effective things I have recorded in recent memory.
