July 22, birthday of Eve Beglarian: “In and Out of the Game”

Bingo! Here’s a wonderful piece by Eve Beglarian, who in 2009, started on a Kayak trip down the Mississippi river, saying:

“Part of it was a response to the economic free fall. Part of it was when Obama got elected, I thought, ‘This is my country, this really is my country, and I need to know what my country is.’” (NY Times 2009)

Her page on Wikipedia, Eve Beglarian (b. 1958), doesn’t say much about her education or influences, except to classify it as post-minimalist. Actually, neither does her blog. The following piece, was performed live on “Studio 360.” It’s scored for 4 trombones and if you hate brass music, please listen to this, it will change your mind. You can buy other tracks from the River Project here.
