For the closing night of the Open Embodiments conference in Tucson, I will be playing an electro-acoustic set to accompany a shadow puppet dance by my outrageously creative friend Kimi Eisele. Saturday, April 18, 2015, at Steinfeld Warehouse sometime between 8:30pm and midnight.
With friends and colleagues from Movement Salon, I will be taking part in a presentation/performance entitled “Written With the Body” as a part of the international conference Open Embodiments: Locating Somatechnics in Tucson taking place April 15-18, 2015. Our portion will be at 7:30pm on Friday, April 17 at FLUXX, 414 E 9th Street.
Yesterday, I made a long-anticipated trip to Caramoor to take in the Garden of Sonic Delights, curated by my good friend Stephan Moore. It was amazing in myriad ways, and I’m so glad that I was able to go. Pics and sound to follow soon. The exhibition runs through Novermber 2 – if you have the chance to go check it out, you will not regret it.
I’ll be playing the live accompaniment for Amleto (Hamlet), which has not been performed since 1871, under the baton of Anthony Barrese in its U.S. premiere at Baltimore Concert Opera on Oct. 2 and 5. I will also be the répétiteur for its fully-staged production with orchestra at Opera Southwest in Albuquerque, N.M – performances will be Oct. 26, 31, and Nov. 2.
New sound art, about to be published (details soon). I’ve mixed and manipulated several recordings I’ve made during Tucson’s monsoon season over the past few summers, have a listen:
