” kprs” is a suite played as four discrete parts; “seven dreams about
time” is seven parts played as a continuous whole.

Written as an hommage to Hector Berlioz and inspired by his writing for woodwinds.

A four-part hommage (mahoning; alchemy; light cloud, dark cloud; 1956-j no. 2) to four of my favorite painters: Franz Kline, Jackson Pollack,Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still.

dynamite’s dionysian dance
Inspired by Frederick Neitzsche’s “Also Sparch Zarathrustra.”

cold green mystery
After a line in the “Thousand Nights and One Night” – –
also known as “The Arabian Nights” – – describing the sea.

our lady of the illuminated hand
A little requiem of sorts.

seven dreams about time
Based on a book that explains Einstein’s theories of time through fictionalized accounts of his dreams.

My idea of a musical illustration of the concept of
“render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s . . . ”

secret one-hand shake
A basic rhythmic idea stolen from a piece by
Herbie Hancock.

knowledge is gravity
An attempt to write something inspired by a little reading about String Theory.

  1. 0 out of 5

    For our last offering in this wide-ranging grab bag of musics, we turn to STEUART LIEBIG/STIGTETTE and their CD DELTA (pfMentum 33) …This is absorbing Third Stream music composed for and improvised by the unusual instrumentation as listed above. Mr. Liebig’s contrabass guitar blends interestingly with the winds throughout. All players are quite skilled and the engaging music is composed with room for “blowing” in a freely structured way. This is chamber music that is rooted in modern concert music as much as it is in Improv. I found it a delight. You may also—as long as you don’t mind the lack of Blues choruses or searing layers of multiphonics. This is a quieter kind of music.
