Dang, I just learned that my beloved friend Guy Klucevsek is going through another bout of cancer, this time pancreas and liver. He's an astounding accordion player and composer. Please send your thoughts and prayers in his direction!
He just posted a video of a beautiful piece he wrote for 4 accordions in honor of Pauline Oliveros here:
I've been wanting to create a piece for him.
Today I got a chance!
I employed my usual method; I assigned my special scale to the alphabet, wrote out Guy Klucevsek, and the notes/tonalities were revealed. Took out my big Crucianelli accordion, and started composing... I ended up notating the clarinet solo, and it took me a good hour to get close to being able to play it!
Thanks for your support! I'll check in again in early August.
