Creative Music with Miff Mole 7/9/15
Blog Name: Progressive NightsAuthor: Miff Mole Posted on: July 9, 2015
I do not multi-task well. My multi-tasking is more stretched out linear-like, not stacked. Some might say it's not multi-tasking if it's not simultaneous but I would ask "how simultaneous does it have to be?" Right now E.S.T. is rolling "Still" from Leucocyte. This piece is certainly one mood of Free Time, but next is "Summer Song/Two/Evening" by Bill Dixon. Similar, but very different from each other. In the scope of things, there's going to be something around the corner that could change everything.
