Tracking the Odds: "Blue" Gene Tyranny (Audio)
A performance by composer/pianist ”Blue" Gene Tyranny whose tonal yet asymmetrical compositions have inspired and tantalized artists from John Cage to Iggy Pop. He is widely known for his substantial contributions to the ensemble works of Robert Ashley and has also worked with Carla Bley, Laurie Anderson, Peter Gordon, Leroy Jenkins, and many more including The Stooges. This recording is one of his rare solo concerts presented at Roulette’s original Tribeca loft on December 1, 2004 playing songs from his CD, Take Your Time. A bonus track, X Marks The Spot (Daydream), from his 1994 Lovely Music album, Country Boy Country Dog, closes out the program.
