After a minute or two, the tempo changed, and the drops became dense and percussive. For all of the cold and goosebumps that we felt, it was a beautiful sight. The river a street of mercury that shimmered with black and white kaleidoscope all around us.

Of course, I did my improv first. Definitely has elements of both Petrushka and the Dante Sonata. Both had been on Wael's program. It's interesting how you cannot deny the immediate influence.

Very Bartokian, if you ask me.

And... 24 days to go. Or am I going for exactly 365 days? Didn't think that one through too well. It is a leap year, as well.

I start to feel the same way, here. Even after five hours of teaching, I'm still surprised how the time flies when I get to the sixth lesson.
Here we go, Day 340: https://ia600309.us.archive.org/18/items/Improv71912/20120719204014.mp3
Well, I'm getting this one in early. The first improv is yesterday's. So at least I've still not missed a day of that.
Here we go, Day 338 (very Rzewski material, after listening to Akiko practice the Winnsboro Cottonmill Blues): https://ia600801.us.archive.org/8/items/Improv71812/20120718163627.mp3
and Day 339: https://ia700800.us.archive.org/7/items/Improv71712/20120717083935.mp3
Can you tell that as pleased as I am, I'm also starting to lose it?
