Frank CarlbergSing Bemsha Swing and Newton’s Law
This is my piece for the Hoosac Journal Issue 6. It is a AIFF audio file.
Below is a piece of music which is part of a series of things that I've worked on during the COVID madness. The series is inspired by the work of Thelonious Monk, and his invaluable contribution to American and World culture.
The piece is called SING BEMSHA SWING AND NEWTON'S LAW, and specifically draws inspiration from a seminal Monk work from 1952.
This piece is mostly executed in isolation on my computer with additional assistance by Priya Carlberg on voice and Avery Logan on drums.
