(Note from Laurie: In May and June, Hilary and the prepared-piano artist Hauschka will tour together, presenting duo improvisation concerts to reflect the worldwide release of their recent recording, called Silfra.You can find that schedule right here, as the dates are announced. Next week we'll be giving away some of these CDs on )
