Space Between - The Space Between with Matthew Sperry

SKU 482-1020
Philip Gelb (shakuhachi), Pauline Oliveros (accordion), Dana Reason (piano), Matthew Sperry (bass).

"Matt and I first met while we were attending the music school at Florida State University. We became roomates in 1990-91 and remained close friends since. I have always been in awe at how warm and kind he was to every person and every living being he encountered! Matt truly lived a very spiritual life that is a model for how the rest of us should live. Our musical careers grew together from being students to both attaining a certain amount of reputability in the international new music world. Through the years we were duet partners as well as being in numerous trios and larger ensembles together. As friends we saw each other through so many different experiences and relationships, watching and helping each other grow. We inspired each other to begin exploring organic gardening and further our culinary interests from the kitchen to the garden. Matt was someone I always considered a close friend for the rest of my life. You will notice that, on the piece with Matt (Lila), towards the end as a very interesting section is about to begin, the piece is cut short suddenly as the tape ends; a seemingly appropriate way to end this recording. The Space Between offers this CD as a tribute to the beautiful life that Matthew Sperry lived." – Philip Gelb June 24, 2003
