Recording and videotaping individual performances is the backbone of this piece. So, I decided to do a few test runs before leaving Seattle. The first took place in my garage, which is appropriate given that the piano has lived there for years. It’s also the first time I actually sat down and recorded the piano. This video is of me playing Thelonious Monk’s “Round Midnight”. I think he would have liked it.
While you’re at it, here is Monk himself.
