Album Notes
"Music From The Kitchen" is five tracks composed for performances held in the mid 1990's at The Kitchen, the world renowned avant-garde performance space in New York City.

The first four pieces, the "Basetime" series were composed for "Hybrid #1," an evening of experimental performance, music, and visual art that was curated by Kathryn Greene.

The final piece, "Prisoners of Grace," was created for a dance piece of the same name, choreographed by JoAnn Fregalette Jansen.
