Ron Athey and Sean Griffin’s Gifts of the Spirit: Prophecy, Automatism and Discernment was reviewed in ArtForum.
I’m glad to have been a small, bass-playing part of it.
My next album, Orbit, will be released in March 2018 by the label IIKKI. Each of IIKKI’s releases pairs musical artists with visual artists and my work will be paired with the photographer Renato D’Agostin.
Here’s a preview of the opening track, featuring Rachel Beetz‘s incredible flute playing.
The music is available as an LP and the art as a fine art book, intended to be enjoyed both together and separately. For the turntableless people out there, the music will also be available as a download (or if you just prefer bits over grooves).
I’m off to the ISB convention Tuesday morning (at 3am!). I’ll give a little talk on Saturday morning at 9am about recording the bass. Of the many things I’m excited about I’ll be looking forward to playing a lot of basses and bows by from all the major US shops; concerts by Eleonore Oppenheim, Mark Dresser, and Matthew McDonald; lectures and masterclasses by Matthew McDonald and Megan McDevitt; and of course seeing old friends and mentors and meeting new ones. The full schedule is here.
If you’ll be around and want to say hello, please send me an email so we’ll be sure to make it happen!
