Syrinx Journey Day 362: “Syrinx” with strings

This is a double version of Syrinx, featuring one performance with violin improvisations by Nigel Armstrong, and double bass improvisations by Matthew Weber. They are two of the wonderful musicians I am having fun playing with at Lake George Music Festival in New York. Nigel is a fellow Curtis alumnus who also plays jazz, and Matt is a New York-based and plays in several orchestras. These are my first forays into Syrinx with the timbre of string instruments, and I think the contrast of the high and low strings provides an interesting range of sonorities.


Syrinx Journey Day 287: “Syrinx” with Eileen and Ren doing improvisation

Violinist Eileen Kosasih from Calgary, who participated in Curtis Summerfest’s Chamber Music for Adult Musicians, and violist Ren Martin-Doike, a Curtis student who was a Curtis Artist Teacher at the program, brought their talents and imagination to Syrinx. We continued into a fun free improvisation.
