The joyous occasion to bring together musicians.

Toward the end of August 2012, the glass tables (Tomas Bouda, myself), composer Chris Reiche of Victoria BC and vocalist Larissa Mason of Ottawa ON gathered at the Reiche Family Lodge to write and record four new tracks.

The Lodge is situated on 750 acres of wooded area surrounding Little Swawell Lake just outside Pembroke ON . It is a perfect place for quiet morning swims, nightly marshmallow roasts, venison and fish dinners, and music making day and night.

Run on solar power and making use of compostable toilets, the lodge is a window into another world.

I love it there.

pianos, keyboards, accordions, flutes, percussion instruments, guitars and voices guide our exploration of the space, the isolation, the season (and how it turns). We created four pieces. Here are the titles:

Ascension

Summer

Descension

Winter

We have arrived. And there are cabins to sleep in.

Prepared and ready. The recording space.

With the generous support of FACTOR, the four tracks will be released as an EP soon.

I look forward to sharing that with you.

Back in the city. Chris Reiche joined the glass tables at Somewhere There, Toronto ON August 31st, 2012 to perform as part of the Leftover Daylight series. You can view the video of the performance here.

Special thank you to Pam Lambert and Ron Reiche for the use of the Reiche Lodge.

Back to living in the city.

Deep breath.

Hi friends,

Welcome to my blog. I am a composer and pianist from Canada. I am excited to use this platform to share my activities (playing and listening)

Under a blanket of snow the soil waits patiently. This is January 2012. And it is a beginning.

This beginning is a place, and not a trajectory.

Thank you for visiting today.
