The Useless Lesson

The Useless Lesson includes collaborations with Leo Abrahams, Dwight Ashley and phonographer Anode. The CD is comprised of structured and unstructured pieces juxtaposed to emphasize the importance of recognizing sound as music. The structured pieces are mostly for string trio and are traditional and surface-oriented, placing their emphasis on the interaction of separate voices, set in contrast with collaborative, steady-state and hybrid pieces which are heuristic, synthetic and primarily timbral.


To force closed our eyes
Failing need of more
Music that conceives of itself as music
Trio (sentimental music)
Long after dowland
Declension of need
