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.
My most recent release, Orbit, is now online at a few more locations:
Stream it on Spotify
Purchase it from Boomkat
And, as you always could, grab your vinyl copy, art book, and/or download on bandcamp.

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.

Mark Swed’s large piece on John Luther Adams in the LA Times has a portion devoted to the Redlands Symphony’s April concert. The whole article is centered on Adams’s recent work, and pays special attention to our performance of his there is no one, not even the wind.
