Tech Support Tales

To my readers, especially the professional ones, waiting for reviews, articles, etc., an apology and an explanation.  For the last two weeks or so I’ve been working on getting past a pernicious technical obstacle, drilling down through system hangs, disk I/O errors, Firewire Bus resets, mdworker crashes and the like.  At the moment, I’m confident I’ve found the root cause and have a solution in process, so expect the usual pace to resume within the next 48 hours.  In the meantime, amuse yourself with a back issue of something I used to subscribe to, in the good old days.


I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
