Album Description

Donut Music is an extended piece for solo guitar. This performance is by Keith Calmes and is on his CD All We Know Is Now. It is available at itunes, cdbaby, and www.keithcalmes.com. The composition is in 9 movements (or bites). The movements have varied lengths, from miniatures to developed pieces, and a diversity of roots-based musical styles including blues, Appalachian, tango, jazz, and samba. Miniature compositions have been an interest to me for many years. With Donut Music's imagery of streams of thoughts and memories, it gave me an opportunity to have several miniatures with the longer pieces. The miniatures represent random and quickly changing thoughts. Above all, this piece is meant to be fun and playful — especially, in how old and new styles are juxtaposed.
