For just intonation piano and sine wave drones.

Aqua Madora comes from a special place and time for me. A turning point in my work, this composition contains most of what I had been working on up to this point: the early lessons from my Rāga studies with La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela, my rhythmic techniques from my time as a percussionist; and contains much of where I am heading now: the integrated sine wave drones, the prime harmonics, the space and time. Since sitting down and playing the first notes in early 2006, this has been one of my favorite pieces. Each performance was a journey into a new and deeper sound world. The New York City performance recorded here was transformative: I performed on a truly remarkable piano and the recording turned out fantastically.

I’m extremely proud to be able to share it with you.
