putting it out there
So the improv I recorded on Sunday gave me great momentum and I decided to completely rearrange my piano studio and move my computer down from the office into the studio and actually hook up my keyboard and have a home for the playpen for the little guy... so now I can upload recordings right away and play piano while I'm waiting for stuff to load and have all the creative juices flowing in one place. I was so motivated and a dangerous woman on a mission that I even managed to move the Steinway off of the casters by myself, whoaa. Picture here was taken with my computer's webcam this afternoon... yay! That means I might even be inspired to do some webcasting or recording some video. In the meantime I recorded another improv tonight. The editor in me wanted to "try again" and record another. Well, not only do I not have the time because baby will need me soon, I figure that's not in the spirit of me letting go of the editor. I almost didn't upload this file because it's not in "finished" state and wouldn't really be on a recording somewhere... but there are some really nice moments in it. And I'm putting it out there. baby calling gotta go.
