First Music Sale!

No Comments

1987.08 First sale of music: “California” pieces to Stanford AEA Electronics Ed foundation $100. Tape available.

That track is long-lived; in 2009 I used it for the same purpose; intro and outro for the Entanglement Science videos.

“Stanley–the feeling I got from your music was reminiscent of Weather Report’s Mysterious Traveler album. I was amazed at the spontaneity you accomplished playing with drum machine patterns. I was also impressed with the way you play synthesizers. Very tasty rhythms and sounds. I hear your influences as being similar to mine: Miles, Weather Report, Chick, Coltrane, … Did you play a Rhodes piano through a Mutron bi-phase or was that a sampled sound? That was the sound that made me think of Mysterious Traveller. What drum machine did you use? The patterns were great! Easy to jam with and sophisticated enough to add to the improvisational approach you choose. I think this music is releasable. “

My First Jazz Casual

Jazz wedding casual; Bach Dancing and Dynamite.

No finer setting. This was the first time I performed with the Prophet-5—borrowed from the Service Dept. It had taken me a while to get used to it, but I managed to get the right sounds at the right time.

The question of context plays back into the synthesizer player’s duties. In other words, the syntheteur should be able to make appropriate gross selections but also appropriate subtle adjustments so that the instrument is as (expressive & compelling = musical) as possible. So from this experience on I became keenly interested in problems around how to use the programmable synthesizer in performance. Recordings of this typical jazz exists only to document a baseline against which to compare MUSIC for the INNER FILM [CD] which was my answer to those problems.
