October 28th, 2010 · Comments · Bliss Street Studios, Music Studios

I’m sweeping off the dust on my notes from this summer during the composing of Trigger’s Broom. This post wraps up my journal entries from my residency sponsored by ConEdison. Corona Songline 1.10 (7/22) thud of cases of Goya beans dropping on top of each other as they are unloaded from a curbside delivery truck […]

Trigger’s Broom 1.9

October 27th, 2010 · Comments · Bliss Street Studios, Music Studios

I’m sweeping off the dust on my notes from this summer during the composing of Trigger’s Broom. 6/25/10 After savoring the top-notch lunch buffet Jackson Diner (PS: what’s up with the sink placement in the men’s bathroom?), I swung by the piano outside of the Jackson Heights Post Office as part of the Play Me: I’m […]

Trigger’s Broom 1.7-1.8

October 26th, 2010 · Comments · Bliss Street Studios, Music Studios

I’m sweeping off the dust on my notes from this summer during the composing of Trigger’s Broom. Corona Songline 1.7 (6/3) whirr and beep (concert D) of Q23 MetroCard machine – “psst” of A/C and electric whine of bus motor – concert G ping of stop request – aroma of (¿)chorizo wafting past – canned […]

Trigger's Broom 1.3

June 5th, 2010 · Comments · Bliss Street Studios, Music Studios

On this visit to Corona, I took a slight detour from the train and walked up 99th St (instead of 103rd).  I felt restless and eager to discover new avenues and courses, looking for variations on a theme.  Upon entering the community center and plopping down in front of the piano, I pulled out the […]

Trigger's Broom 1.2

May 24th, 2010 · Comments · Bliss Street Studios, Music Studios

Recently, I stopped renting a studio space in DUMBO and moved my piano into our apartment (thanks, Paul).  With an upright sitting proudly in our home, keys inviting my touch, a fair question to ask is:  “Why the heck should I go to the trouble of getting on the 7 train and head out to […]
