Charcoal Notes

Michael Robinson

About this work:
Charcoal Notes is music which came to me while riding one afternoon on the Long Island Railroad from Manhattan As soon as the musical phrased crystallized, I was at a loss without any pen or pencil. Looking down at the floor, I noticed a book of used matches and some paper. I made the fortunate discovery that I could write down the musical ideas using the charcoal of the burnt matches! - Michael Robinson, Lahaina, December 2000 © 2000 by Michael Robinson All rights reserved
