Musician Adrian Tenney (Badlands, ex-Spokenest and Gods Equals Genocide) is working on a project to record a piece of music composed by her late father James Tenney in 1985. Titled Changes: 64 Studies for 6 Harps, the work features 6 harps all tuned slightly differently. It will be performed for free in Los Angeles later this month, and Adrian is raising funds to produce a 3 CD recording of the material.
