Three Regular Axioms
for solo piano, Op. 2 (2007)
dedicated to Kevin Kelly
This early piano work, in three parts, represents an experiment in transcribing and codifying a series of improvised recording sessions built upon a small set of pre-determined thematic fragments, which recur throughout in various iterations. The result is a ‘fixed’ score which embodies ‘un-fixed’ principles; capturing extemporaneous musical material into something unified and static.
The release of this set of pieces was postponed due to a master print that was previously thought to have been lost. Despite being in possession of lossy reference files, these lacked the requisite fidelity for publication. A copy of the original master was found in late 2014.
released December 16, 2014
This recording was made at Kerr Hall,
