Each Friday when I recap at 6 p.m. PST I start it off with a quote.
“I’m going for the brevity award this year, … To receive this award among so many great artists is in deed an honor.” – Steve Reich
Ten weeks, phew. First, let me make it clear to everyone that ImprovFriday is an online event set around improvisations, but isn’t limited to just that. We also share new works and old works and personally I like to post works of great composers like Terry Riley, which I did yesterday in honor of his In C performance last night at Carnegie Hall.
Yesterday marked the biggest turnout yet. Jeff Harrington is working on an mp3 player. Participants included Charles Turner, James Ross, Paul Bailey, David Toub, Steve Layton, Jeffrey Harrington, JC Combs, Renato Borges, Joseph Benzola, and Jukka-Pekka Kervinen.
I want to make special mention of Jukka-Pekka. He has consistently showed up with very nice improvisations for seven straight weeks, I believe. Great work, Jukka!
