This is the first blog from my new website. Due to changes at Apple I’ve had to move my content to a new site…..here @ WordPress.com where it will reside for the time being.
This coincided with the release of my new CD…”Modern Dance Environmets 3″ that is a compilation of music recorded by myself and Erik Leckrone with several incredible music artists like Craig Kupka who produced the original vinyl of Modern Dance Technique Environmets 1-3 in the late 70’s early 80’s to Nana Simopoulos and Paul Carman, former member of Zappa’s band.
I will add pages in the near future regarding my improv workshops and teaching schedule and will enter new blogs on Facebook.
Thank you !!
The June 2012 Santa Ana Artwalk concert at the loft of Robert and FLorence Estrin was a memorable success. On June 2nd, Norm joined nephew Austin Beede on drums, friend Steve Grom on electric bass and pianist Rita Rowe for a well attended two sets of jazz, bookending a wonderful performance of “Music for Three Pianos” originally composed and recorded thirty-two years ago by Norman Beede, Craig Kupka, Kenny Sawhill and Roland Tripp for vinyl recordings of music for modern dance choreography and classes. Music for Three Pianos is available on CD “Modern Dance Environments 2” on asgardprod.com and as a single track download available on asimplesound.com.
