I played for a composer faculty concert at Longy School of Music tonight, with my trumpet player friend Spencer Aston. Spencer asked the composer John Morrison to write him a piece for one of his recitals coming up on Monday, before he leaves for the National Broadway tour of Porgy and Bess.
The piece was called Hollow Box and had Spencer play into the resonances of the piano, and me plucking the piano strings and pushing keys with my elbows.
Holding on one heel (the other busy with the pedal).
