Today I was in a New York state of mind. I started the day going to Carnegie Hall and meeting with the booking manager. Carnegie Hall is one of my favorite concert halls and I am looking forward to doing an upcoming sample project there.
I then met with Ravi Dattatreya, president of Jasmine Music which produces Onyx Style Enhancer.We then met at a coffee shop with Stuart Koll Morgan, composer and GPO user.
Then off to a recording session with Andy Brick at Reed Robin's studio near Union Square. Andy was recording woodwinds and brass and also preparing a surprise. After the session we went to Wendy Carlos' apartment and visited for a few hours. It was so good to see Wendy again. What a brilliant mind who understands music and technology (did you know Wendy helped program some of the GPO update?) Wendy is about the release a new album of her film scores which sounds fascinating.
Then it was off to Penn Station to catch a train to Boston (wonder who won the Yankees/Red Sox season opener?) I am writing this post on the express train to Boston. Nice comfortable train ride after a hectic day.
The clattering rhythm of the train tracks has a somnabulistic efect.
Very (yawn) slleeppyyyy...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
