Known for drawing unusual sonorities from conventional instruments, Xenakis strangely left the piano's potential for novel sounds unexplored. In these works, Xenakis stays on the keyboard without so much as a plucked string or any use of gadgetry to alter the instrument's sound. Although that might make these pieces appear less radical, even "safe," Xenakis exploits every other option available.

John Cage's austere Four Walls was composed in 1944 for Merce Cunningham's dance play of the previous year, and marks the beginning of a long and productive collaboration between the two artists. Except for the dance's structure, which was carefully planned in advance, Cage's music operated fairly independently of Cunningham's choreography, and its strictly timed sections alternated between fragmentary, song-like passages in modal harmony and aggressive bursts of expanding and contracting patterns, often in bare octaves.

The Making of "It Takes Three" by David Barrett: In 2006 I approached Gary Smith (my mentor at age 16 and South Bay blues harmonica legend) about doing a recording project where the interaction between the harmonica players was the theme. Gary had done this type of thing before, most notably for Tom Mazzolini’s San Francisco Blues Festival and annual Battle of the Blues Harmonicas (this was THE premier blues harmonica show on the West Coast), but it was challenging to get the other harmonica players to spend the time required to learn their parts well enough to make the music really successful. I offered Gary my arranging and organization skills and promised that we’ll make it happen and he agreed.

Avant-garde, experimental and misogynist in the bargain, this oddball film is about 17 men named Frank who make their way through Helsinki in a commandeered subway car. Their goal is to reach the symbolically peaceful, perfect coastal town of Eira. Along the way they perform some pop music, one of them is shot, they split up, and finally two manage to reach the sea. Once there, they discover that the water is filled with dead fish, and a decrepit rowboat somehow becomes an object of contention.

The project 'Hotel Zauberberg' arose out of Aki Takase's and Yumi Paul's shared admiration for the writer Thomas Mann. It mostly consists of notated compositions, with some improvised parts as well. Eleven of the eighteen pieces were penned by Aki Takase, another five are collaborations with Ayumi Paul. Additionally, there are adaptations of a Mozart Minuet and a Bach Partita.
