Transition By Season

Transition By Season is an abstract catalogue of the music I’ve performed in a recently completed season.  It allows me the opportunity to reflect upon my musicking with open yet categorical coverage.  Here is the transition that is my 2014-15 season.

Focused energy; Frenetic compilation of sound and spirit.
