I had a great weekend hanging out with my sis in snowy D.C. and with Justin Massey & Jason Charney at the U.S. Navy Band’s International Saxophone Symposium at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. Justin premiered a work in progress sax solo of mine, and performed Jason’s killer “Scrap Metal.” Check out this little video and a few pics from my weekend:
Fantastic concert last night by Miranda Cuckson! It was such an honor to have her interpret my music, and to have it alongside great pieces by Daniel Fox, Charles Rudig, Emerson Sudbury, Forrest Tang, and Matthew Thomas. Here are a few pics from the soundcheck.
Tomorrow evening at Hunter College, the incredible Miranda Cuckson will perform my new piece Pole, Steam, Tree, Glass for violin & electronics. My piece will be alongside pieces by other CUNY composers, including Daniel Fox & Charles Rudig. From what I’ve seen in rehearsal, the pieces are thoughtful and adventurous, and the interpreting/performing will be excellent. Very excited.
My video “Marble Words” will be presented at the NWEAMO festival in Tokyo on Sunday, November 13, 2016 (So, to remind myself, 12am in NY) The festival is held at Koen Dori Classics on Saturday (7pm) & Sunday (2pm). Info here: NWEAMO / FACEBOOK / SAT / SUN / KOEN DORI CLASSICS / DIRECTIONS
