Recorded at EMPAC at RPI in Troy, Surface Image, the new hour-long composition for solo piano and 40-¬≠channel 1-¬≠bit electronics by pianist Vicky Chow and composer Tristan Perich, has been released on New Amsterdam Records. The album was produced by EMPAC’s Argeo Ascani and mixed by engineer Jeffrey Svatek. The album is currently available at iTunes and Amazon.

Hudson artist Chad Weckler is hoping to bring a series of 10 free concerts to Hudson next summer, but he needs your help. He’s applied for a $25,000 matching grant from Levitt Pavilions, and his proposal is one of 26 projects participating for a Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Award. An online public voting process is now in progress through Sunday, November 30 to determine the Top 20 finalists, and you can go here to register your vote. Levitt Pavilions will then review the finalists, and 10 grants will be awarded in December.
