New Year, New Record

Starting off the new year just right, my friend Nat Evans released a new recording today on his bandcamp page. “Two Functions in Three Dimensions: music for meditative cooking is a new ambient work by Nat Evans for electric bass, gong resonated by subwoofer, and field recording.” I provided the electric bass sounds which helped resonate the subwoofer.

You can listen to the piece using the player below, and read the rest of the description by clicking through to the album’s bandcamp page.

New Videos

Two new videos are now online! They’re both long microtonal chamber works in just intonation.

The slower-paced, more peaceful of the two is Christine Tavolacci and my performance of Cat Lamb’s muto infinitas at Cal Arts: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/117577768

A more maximal work for brass, strings, soprano, and recorded poetry, wasteLAnd‘s performance of Wolfgang von Schweinitz’s THE CANTATA or, You are the star in God’s eye on Microfest:

2018 Ojai Music Festival

It was so much fun to get to perform as part of the 2018 Ojai Music Festival. The opening night performance of Nono’s La lontananza nostalgica utopia futura was reviewed in the LA Times and Ventura County Star.

I was also one of the eight (!!!!!!!!) basses for Ustvolskaya’s Dies Irae on Saturday night. Steve Smith wrote about his experience of the festival here (and includes a couple notes and photos of the Dies Irae performance).

Full festival reviews also appear in the NY Times, LA Times, and The New Yorker.
