>Live performance by The Patrick Grant Group<

Composer/keyboardist Patrick Grant is a regular performer with Gamelon Son of Lion, and has written for chamber ensembles and choreographers. Grant performed a new keyboard-based piece, "Under The Influence" which is written in non-tempered, pure C major tuning (otherwise known as "just intonation", sounding microtonal in nature). The group also included Paul DaSilva (keyboards) and David Simons (percussion).

Grant recently relesed an album of chamber works, entitled "Silent Treatment" which is available for $15. by writing 1173A 2nd Avenue, Suite 322, New York, NY, 10021. For more information, send Patrick Grant an email.
