Welcome to philcarlsen.com.

My recent blog entries (in the MUS(ICK)INGS section) are turning into a somewhat extended memoir about music copying. I just posted part 3 of “Ozalid Days,” this time focusing on the legendary music copyist Arnold Arnstein, a man I worked for in New York City in the late 1970s and early ’80s. In part 4, I expect to offer some transcriptions of a series of oral history interviews I did with him. Check back for that in early October (I hope!).

Also, please take a look at my son Eric’s video with scrolling score of Penumbra.

Feel free to email me if you have questions or suggestions, or just want to say hi. Thanks for visiting.
