      i knew a bit what to expect, and I got a fair sample. there was some initial trouble with sound level but I listened with my i-Pad and good headphones and sound was enjoyable. As of course the music...plus the fact that this had an at-home-with feeling, David Thomas just playing with a bunch of us friends gathered around. A community feeling, though almost global.

Postmodernist composer, pianist, poet and multimedia visual artist David Thomas Roberts was born in 1955 and began composing, painting and writing at age eight. His first ambitious compositions date from 1971 and reflect the influence of such composers as Chopin, Satie, Ives and Joplin. Since then he has composed over 120 solo piano works as well as a variety of chamber pieces, art songs, choral music and electronic works. As a pianist he recorded five LPs between 1978 and 1985, and has appeared on some twenty CDs since, many of them devoted to his own compositions. His music has been heard on the major media venues of North America, from ABC's "Good Morning America" to National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" and across Canada on CBC Radio. He is the recipient of numerous Meet The Composer grants, and has performed from concert halls throughout Japan to New York's 92nd Street Y to Oslo Concert Hall. In 2005 Roberts accompanied the Oakland Ballet in original arrangements of American music. His eclectic suite for piano, New Orleans Streets (1981-85) was hailed by historian Al Rose in I Remember Jazz as "the single most important contribution to the culture of New Orleans in the past fifty years."
