The Meaning of Music - Corvallis Art Center

On Saturday March 18 and Sunday March 19, I took part in a really neat performance - a melange of story and music performed on the Corvallis Art Center stage. The program on Saturday night went so well I video taped the Sunday performance, which also went quite well. Bach, Bartok, spoken word, poetry and free Jazz were the order for the day. John Bliss and I performed a free Jazz piece that segued into a All The Things You are - fun stuff!

"Free Association" and "All the Things You Are" performed by Rob Birdwell and John Bliss.

Although we didn't do a piece with all five of us together, to my "audio montage" of all five of us performing. Bach, Bartok, spoken word and Free Jazz all re-mixed together! Maybe someday we'll actually do something like this live!
