I think we must have recorded this around 2002. This was made in a basement studio on the Gelderskade in Amsterdam. Just an afternoon session, reading through some tunes and improvising.

Here are a couple tracks from one of my favorite bands. We didn't last long and we only gave 4 or 5 concerts, but the energy, creativity and musicality of Steve Heather and Tim O Dwyer continue to haunt me and feed me with ideas.

Here are two tracks from the live show in 2001 at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.

1. Carmen
2. Terco (with the voice of Elisa Santiago)

I'll be uploading more of pUPPy in the future.

Brian Ferneyhough, Time and Motion Study II

Here is the American Premiere performance of Brian Ferneyhough's piece. There are before and after' moments in life. This was one. I abandoned notated music for 5 years after performing this. Lost all interest in the struggle with the page, went to Holland and learned how to use my ears and improvise. This piece came back to haunt me a year or so ago when I was asked to play it at the Spark Festival in Minneapolis. It was even more difficult to come back to the piece, knowing it already, but I had a fantastic crew at the University and the performance was ecstatic. I don't think I'll ever play this piece again, but it has rearranged my thinking about music production
