We've shot The Exchange, half in my family's home in the Bronx, half in a blank space at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn. It was a transformative experience, and I am eager to see what Mark makes of the sound, the raw footage, and the old VHS/Super8 transfers. Watch this space for information on an upcoming launch for the film and for some other things.
While compulsively checking the internet for mentions of my name I came across this video of a recent performance of Babybot. I've never heard it with this sort of pitch content before (the players choose the physical materials, so the contour of the melody is really up to their ears). It's a really nice performance all around, and I'm grateful that these "Bot" pieces are making the rounds.
It would be great to see you at one of these...or both of these...it's my set from Wassaic but with acoustic drums incorporated. Makes it harder to play and better to hear, I think.
I'm pleased beyond my ability to blog that I have joined the composition faculty for the Summer 2013 edition of the So Percussion Summer Institute! I'm in esteemed company. Look. It's going to be so real. As an enticement, you can view PROFESSIONAL QUALITY video of my SoSI piece from last summer's session here.
I'm pleased to announce that a short piece of mine was selected for inclusion on the SEAMUS Electro-Acoustic Miniatures series! This year's theme was "Re-Caged," in honor of John Cage. Check it out on CDbaby here.
The Exchange Project is live! Please visit/contribute/spread the word! Many thanks.
