New Video: Isaacson's the way of all flesh
This entire concert received a wonderful review in Isaac Shankler's Spring Concert Journal on NewMusicBox (I am a little biased towards the review because I was called "masterful" and "transfixing" which made me pretty excited). He also writes about three other Los-Angeles-area concerts by the LA Phil, What's Next Ensemble, and Timur and the Dime Museum.

New Video: Saariaho's Folia
I'm excited about putting some video online from a recent recital I played of works for bass and electronics. First up, Kaija Saariaho's Folia. Hope you enjoy it!
This was the first concert I played on a new bass that Barrie Kolstein built for me. It will be really lovely to play this instrument for years and years to come.

More on Even the Light Itself Falls
Textura and Sequenza21 have also written about my piece/album Even the Light Itself Falls. It's been very exciting to read about how people are enjoying the pace and space of the piece. Textura also did a Spotlight article on me which is a little mini interview-like piece.
