  • Lydian Chromatic Concept Update: new video "The Consonant Nucleus" split-screen Performance and Transcription - Lydian, Lydian Augmented, Lydian Diminished Scales +

    A new video of me playing my original compositions of the first 3 Lydian Chromatic Concept Scales from my "Seven Vertical Scales" album is now live on YouTube on Chris Bandy's channel! It captures a split-screen where you see me performing the instrumental works from the solo piano album live on my 1924 Steinway "M" on the left, and a note-for-note transcription scrolling on the right. You can follow along by watching the music notation to get a better idea of these first three scales in the Western Order of Tonal Gravity. Notation and video produced by Chris Bandy, and original performance live stream concert produced by me for TransMedia Sound and Music, my production company. The Lydian Scale, The Lydian Augmented Scale, and The Lydian Diminished Scale are part of the nine-tone order called "The Consonant Nucleus" for their chord-producing qualities, which encompass the five fundamental chord categories of Read More
  • Giving +

    As we observe and celebrate on this day, Thanksgiving day 2020, it is my intention in this blog post to share with everyone a list of the qualities of giving that we can nurture moving forward, pressing onward and upward. These internal attitudes of character and behavior represent the antithesis of narcissism. Thanksgiving is a time to feel grateful and connect with gratitude, but besides the first part of the word "thanksgiving," the second part is more important, especially now with all the challenges we face as Americans and as human beings around the globe. Giving is what makes us human - whereby we feel that others are more important than ourselves. When our own needs take a backseat to feeling empathy for the needs of others, we discover what being human can be. Let's listen to the silence (within and without) today and everyday as we keep on keepin' on, Read More
  • Review of Andy Wasserman Benefit Live Stream Concert November 21, 2020 +

    Here's a review posted on Facebook from this past weekend's Live Stream Concert Fundraiser to benefit the Sussex County Food Coop: THIS WAS TRANSFORMATIVE! An Editorial Note: Last night we hosted a lovely concert by Andy Wasserman, and I just have to say an amazing thing happened. I took an hour to just "BE" and relax and enjoy the show. Not only the music, but how the music made me feel. It was relaxing and an almost spiritual experience as I set aside an hour for myself to enjoy this. Maybe it's because it's been such a busy few months and there's been so much at stake this past year. Whatever your reason, I urge you all to take a moment and spend it on yourself. If you're so inclined you have the opportunity to watch last night's concert as Andy is leaving it up on his site and accepting Read More

Please make an online donation (any amount you wish) on the day of the concert by clicking the secure “Virtual Tip Jar” donation button link on the live stream page while you are watching the concert. 100% of your donation will go to providing the much appreciated assistance to this important long-running local community oriented institution which provides a unique and valuable service to northwestern New Jersey.

It was an honor to be invited to join the Board of Directors of the Food Coop in 2019. We had planned a live, in-person concert for last June, which was cancelled due to the public health crisis. Now that I've given over 20 weekly livestream concerts, we thought it might be nice to offer something virtual to bring people together and show our support for the Food Coop. It's a place where very loving, hard-working and dedicated people have been bringing healthy, organic food and earth-friendly, affordable products to the northwestern New Jersey area community for the last 40 years.

Here's a short description of the Sussex County Food Coop, from their website:

Originally formed as a buying club in the 1970s, the present co-op was established in 1980 as a not-for-profit natural foods consumer cooperative with a brick-and-mortar retail store open to the public.Our patrons include about 300 member households plus members of the public residing in surrounding counties in New York state and Pennsylvania as well as nearby areas of New Jersey.

SCFC members have been working together for more than thirty years to supply themselves and their neighbors with access to high quality natural and organic foods, including locally-produced foodstuffs. Among other items, SCFC offers locally-grown produce in season, honey, eggs, chicken, and seasonal baked goods. Handmade pottery and textile crafts from local artisans are also for sale.

Many of our members and patrons have special dietary needs. Our shelves are stocked with specialty foods free of dairy, gluten, wheat, soy, tree nuts, and other allergens. In addition to food and personal care products for humans of all ages, SCFC also offers pet food for cats and dogs.
