2 strange interesting pieces of music

http://www.alansondheim.org/zurna.mp3 double zurnas (tracks overlaid)
http://espdisk.com/alansondheim/etc1.mp3 mirage ensoniq with grand organ
samples from 1998?

the zurna has a shenai mouthpiece; i'm working on intonation which is
incredibly difficult for me, but fascinating. these were two short
independent solos; mixing them shows how similar the envelopes are.

the etc1 piece was recorded at the experimental television center in
owego, new york. i was on a residency. i hadn't heard the organ for a long
time; i'm amazed by the strange quality of the sound and chording.
