Summer 2015 was wonderful, including work with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, an installation at Silo City in Buffalo, NY, two weeks working with outstanding and creative faculty and students at the Chosen Vale International Percussion Seminar, and two recording projects: with CAGE documenting the sound sculptures of Harry Bertoia at Cornell's Johnson Museum of Art, and four hours of new quartet music with Anthony Braxton, Holland Hopson, and Andrew Raffo Dewar.
In October I am performing with violist Wendy Richman during the Birmingham New Music Festival, presenting music of Chuck Mason and Holland Hopson. I will also be joining Stuart Gerber and members of Atlanta's new music community in performing Matthias Kaul's Wheeled as part of the annual Art on the Beltline festival.
In November I am presenting Resonant Spaces, a summary of and meditation on recent work concerning sound and place, as part of the 2015 Percussive Arts Society International Convention, held this year in San Antonio, TX.
Seth Cluett and I will be presenting an excerpt of his the deformation of figures as part of the 2016 New Music Gathering, held January 7-9 at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, MD. As in events past, we will be lulling a room full of percussionists to sleep, on an event the night of January 7 featuring LuSo, Mobius, and So Percussion.
News about other 2015-16 concerts and events involving the percussion studio at the University of Alabama forthcoming.
