Greetings all, I am back after another blog hiatus to bring you exciting news as the year accelerates to an end.  I have wonderful things to share from each of my musical endeavors and from Zenph Sound Innovations, where I am on the R&D team.

For starters, the new Zenph website has just launched, and I invite all of you to explore it.  We are debuting a new logo, a new color scheme, and refreshed content about our mission, our technology, samples of our music, and much more.  We also have a storefront for our albums and eventually our software products.  In a week or so, I will begin writing for the company blog with a string of posts about the effect of technology on “liveness” so please check back here for that launch date.  Zenph also has a super-awesome social media coordinator, so please get involved in discussion with our Facebook presence if that suits your fancy.

Secondly, do you remember when I co-wrote and co-produced a show at the Apollo Theater in Harlem?  Well, Zenph is proud to announce a second run of that show, “Art Tatum: Piano Starts Here” in Raleigh, NC this coming December.  We’ve revamped the show with a new cast and crew, and are presenting it in an intimate black box theater at the Progress Energy Center.  Check out the Zenph show page and Facebook for information and tickets.  You won’t want to miss this compelling historical narrative interleaved with exquisite live performances from Art Tatum himself.
