Instrumentation: Fixed Media

Rhythm -- Tonight I found myself thinking about a piece I wrote in 2004 called The Rhythm Variations. It's a series of variations on George Gershwin's I Got Rhythm for solo piano. It occurred to me that this 60x365 is not my first exploration of short forms. One variation lasts only 20 seconds.

So I pulled out that variation (cleverly titled The Shortest Variation) and made three quick recordings of it. These are heard back-to-back over a collage from another piano recording of mine. Enjoy.
