But for this post I am choosing to feature one of my favourite Canadian composers, Alexina Louie.
Soon after using my Blue Snowball mic to record Martha Hill Duncan's Winter Skates I decided I wanted to learn Music for Piano by Alexina Louie. If you are unfamiliar with Louie's style, it often has many changing time signatures or a lack of time signature (senza misura), frequent changes of key signature or the use of accidentals instead of a key, and uses the absolute full range of the piano. Here is a sample of the piano score (the first page of the third movement).
