In the Hands
Paul Cantrell’s music
blog & podcast
Piano music old and new from a devoted amateur,
all free to listen to, download, and share.

First post!

As part of my general mission to increase the flow of bits hither and thither (and, from time to time, yon) across the Internet, I’m starting a music blog. (That would be this.)

My initial goal is to post new recordings twice a week (!), every…oh, let’s say Tuesday and Saturday. Sometimes they’ll be recordings of compositions I’ve been learning (and, in some cases, writing), and the rest of the time, they’ll be pure improvisation. Hopefully the variety of old/new and polished/spontaneous will be enough to keep things interesting.

And yes, for the time being, it will all be piano solo. I’d like to post collaborations with other people on other instruments, but I don’t really have the means to much such recordings at home, at least not yet.

I’ll also be using this blog to post the programs of my concerts, and give audience members a chance to post their feedback. Other creative suggestions for what I might post are, of course, quite welcome.
