I have a couple of exciting upcoming concerts. First are two performances with a brand new conductorless chamber orchestra, Kaleidoscope. We’re playing Copland’s Appalachian Spring and Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony in Pasadena and Santa Monica on November 21st and 23rd.
Second, I’ll be playing on the series Tuesdays @ Monk Space on December 9th. The concert features the Lyris Quartet, Gnarwhallaby, Sara Andon, Elissa Johnston, and me performing works by Marina Khorkova, Helmut Lachenmann, and Carola Bauckholt. Andon and I will perform Khorkova’s a_priori.
Here are some fall updates (via my email list): http://eepurl.com/1W5lL. It includes news about some upcoming performances, a new CD, and a tour.
Here’s a recording of my hot-off-the-press piece, With No Surroundings There Can Be No Path, which is part of Nat Evans’s months-long project The Tortoise and His Raincoat: Music for a Very Long Walk. It uses field recordings Nat made along part of his journey on the Pacific Crest Trail, roughly passing where I grew up to where I live now.

etc.’s recording of the piece just received another review over at icareifyoulisten which you can read here.
A new video! This time, one of my performance of Kurt Isaacson’s the way of all flesh from wasteLAnd’s April 4th concert this year.
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.
