Is a composer/pianist with a number of albums out, including Revelation, Time Loops, and In Flight. He apparently has this piano that can switch in and out of just intonation. I like his stuff, so took a wild shot and asked him via email where I could find sheet music - get this, it's not published but he's going to send me a copy of the score for his entire album Revelation!

I'm impressed. I don't know how many artists would do that.

Yes. But I'm not sure he's in the piano business any more. The business still carries his name, though.

Here is his website which gives lots of information about him:
http://www.michaelharrison.com/

I heard an performance of one of his major works(possibly Revelation in an abbreviated version) at Faust Harrison Pianos during a PW "piano crawl" of the stores on NYC's Piano Row. He gives a lot of information about his specially adjusted pianos on his website but it's fairly difficult to understand(at least for me).

It happens. Just a week or two ago, I read a similar anecdote. I forget who the composers were, but remember the gist of the story, which is that a budding young composer wrote an admiring letter to an older one, and, a while later, without warning, a huge bundle of scores arrived from the older one.
