1-8-13: Songs in the Key of Survival

Stewart Mostofsky is a pediatric neurologist with the Kennedy Krieger Institute and an associate professor of neurology and psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. But he’s not here to talk about neurology—he’s here to talk about experimental music.
Stewart is a member of the Red Room Collective and High Zero Foundation, co-owner of Baltimore's True Vine Record Shop, and he runs Ehse Records, a label that has put out some of Baltimore's most experimental music, and...some of its biggest regional hits, like 2011’s White Life, a pop record made by Jon Ehrens and his sister Emily.
Last Labor Day, Ehse released Songs in the Key of Survival by pianist Leo Svirsky. Svirsky is a classically trained pianist, but this record ventures into improvisation, poetry, and revolutionary politics.
Tom Hall talks to Leo about his record, and to Stewart about what's behind the way he's curated the Ehse label.
Leo performs tomorrow night at a venue called Paperhaus in Washington D.C.
