    we’re raising money for a new album! 

    A few days ago, an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign went live, with the aim of funding a recording of quartet for piano and for four, as performed by the remarkable pianist Stephane Ginsburgh. The album will come out on Maria de Alvear’s label World Edition in 2016. Before the CD has been released, contributors will be able to receive a digital download of the entire album, along with an audio file of the world premiere of quartet for piano from June, 2014, personalized scores of the works, etc.

    So if you’d like to help make this album a reality, please donate. It will really bring you good karma.

    i pollute the web thanks to a podcast 

    Dr. Philippa Kennealy is a business coach for physicians who assists doctors with building their businesses, which is more critical now that so many of us have left clinical practice and are trying to find our niche in the business world. She also uses twitter, and we’ve been following one another through twitter for some time now. Anyway, she decided to tape a podcast with me this morning about the application of social media to medicine, which is a topic near and dear to me. I hope I didn’t sound too ridiculous (it was hard to tell over the phone, in large part because Philippa is just too nice and I don’t know if she would tell me if I were being bombastic or whatever). In any event, the podcast is here. I really hope I didn’t say anything stupid (I haven’t listened to it yet, so it’s very possible, if not likely).

    obviously, the French have great taste in new music… 

    I’m getting some hits to my music page through here, and recently received a few nice e-mails from a composer involved in this site who seems to like my music. Yup, obviously deranged.

    I don’t speak French, although lord knows I tried to learn it when I was at MedCases, since our sister company was in Montreal (the Montreal company survives to this day, and I still am in touch with many of the great people I knew in Canada as a result). Anyway, thanks to OS X’s translator widget, I can get a sense that it says something favorable about my music. If you speak French, feel free to translate in the comments section—undoubtedly it will be much more precise than OS X’s widget.

    ECOUTEZ AUTRE CHOSE (Commentaires aux amis blogueurs)
    posté le dimanche 25 janvier 2009 20:10

    Petite indication aux amis bloggeurs. Je suis tombé d’abord sur un visiteur étrangé à notre plate-forme (béni soit-il par les dieux du plaisir) nommé Dionys. Cet individu commet une émission de radio fm qui diffuse des musiques inclassables va-t-on dire. C’est très riche et ça change des mièvreries qui dégueulent de nos radios fm si familières. C’est là : http://inactuelles.over-blog.com
    Et puis il m’a dirigé vers un blog américain, celui d’un certain David Toub qui compose. Mais qui compose merveilleusement bien. C’est un véritable explorateur et, qui plus est, d’une infinie gentillesse. Son domaine, la musique… minimaliste. Rendez-lui visite ici: http://homepage.mac.com/dtoub/dbtmusic.html
    Pour ceux qui saturent de mes compos sombres, glauques, démoniaques et j’en passe, vous allez passer de longs bons moments. Je ne parle évidement pas aux zappeurs fantômes de la plate-forme…
    Tcho à tous, et si vous saignez des oreilles, z’inquiètez pas, ça cicatrise vite…

      From Google’s Translate tool. I like the part about saturating demonic compost, or whatever it says.

      Posted on Sunday 25 January 2009 20:10

      Early indication friends bloggers. I fell first on a foreign visitor to our platform (it may be blessed by the gods of pleasure) named Dionys. This individual commits an FM radio, which broadcasts music inclassables we going to say. It’s very rich and it changes the insipid claptrap that dégueulent our fm radio so familiar. That is: http://inactuelles.over-blog.com

      And then he directed me to a blog American, that a certain David Toub who compose. But that makes up beautifully. It is a true explorer, and moreover, an infinite kindness. His field, music … minimalist. Make her visit here: http://homepage.mac.com/dtoub/dbtmusic.html

      For those that saturate my compos dark glauques, demonic and so forth, you will spend long moments. I do not obviously zappers ghosts of the platform …
      Tcho to all, and if you are bleeding ears, z’inquiètez not, it heals quickly …
