Rough Matinals

image: Joshua Dumas

April 2013 to June 2013

website

A sound and video series.

Some mornings, when I am very lucky, I get to start my day at the piano. I'd been writing these small rough sketches that sort of feel like nocturnes, but since I work early, I'm calling them matinals. From April 26 - June 14, I recorded a new piece each Friday accompanied by a video experiment.

Now available on cassette from Horror/Fiction Tapes!
