Poly Micro – Poly Tempic, Dr. Peter T!

screen-shot-2016-12-30-at-9-07-01-pmMeet Peter Thoegersen, Ph.D, whose name I have finally learned to spell.  Dr. Thoegersen is a composer, drummer, purveyor of all things microtonal and a witty satirical soul.  Paul and I caught up with him in his hometown of Ventura, CA, while I was out visiting Paul this past October.  We sat down with Peter in the relaxed atrium space at the Ventura pier.

In this podcast 4 of Peter’s works are featured – A Day By The Strand, Hypercube, Canto IV and VII.
