The Blues (2007)

from Symbiotica (a cross-cultural mixup)

(Conlon Nancarrow Study No. 25 from Studies for Player Piano, and Billie Holiday singing I Can't give You Anything But Love by Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields with Teddy Wilson and his Orchestra.)

The Nancarrow Study No. 25 is separated into naturally interrupted segments, then reordered. I separated the Billie Holiday track into short phrases or segments, numbered them, then rearranged the segments and inserted silences between them.

I have included enhanced electronics, mostly on the piano sounds.
