I just discovered the facebook group for toy piano performers so I thought I’d add a link to this audio and video.

This is a piece for toy piano and glassharp that never got on my New Albion cd Song + Distance. It was recorded back in 2000 in Oakland by Myles Boisen. I am playing glass harp with my left hand and toy piano with my right. (There is no overdubbing.)

The timing of finding this facebook group is auspicious in that I just had a rehearsal with toy pianist Phyllis Chen for our concert together in two weeks. April 11 @ Barbés, 7pm.

Here’s a video of my present keyboard collection (toy pianos, analog synths, small keyboards).
