Misc. Comments

The scores displayed here figure seven consecutive improvisations in a single real time session. Accordingly they cannot be read back as if they were honest to goodness compositions. The composer may have transcribed or intended to transcribe some of them, but the work involved is so tedious, that he has not found the patience to accomplish this task so far, and possibly never will do so, in its entirety. The pieces stand as they were played and have not been 'corrected' in any way by the composer, despite the latter's shortcomings as a performer. However a transcription attempt was made upon the last piece : a version can be found in the no.4 piece (Rumor...) of the collection entitled Left Overs. It is typical that the audio recording of the piece in the latter volume if contrasted with its improvised therefore spontaneous predecessor reveals a great platitude. A live performance would of course alleviate the effect.
