News on the recent and upcoming:

I am lucky to continue working with Bruno Duplant and Pedro Chambel's wonderful Rhizome.s label, who recently released my duo Nests with the great Sarah Hennies. Our work from a 2016 session at Buffalo's Silo City will also appear on an upcoming LP for Editions Blume.

Time to get another special recording into the world: this spring Weighter Recordings will release CAGE's work with the Harry Bertoia sculptures at Cornell University. Annie Lewandowski, Chris Miller, and Kevin Ernste have been my friends and neighbors for a decade and it's a thrill that this music will finally be available.

A busy fall: Strange and Sacred Noise and my own Gryllidae at Tippet Rise; a short Meridian tour including the Intersection festival in Toronto, at which we busked Yonge-Dundas Square; a new installation at the University of Richmond for the Third Practice Electroacoustic Music Festival; Sarah Hennies's Contralto at Issue Project Room and featuring all-stars Ashley Tini, Erik Carlson, Wendy Richman, Greg Stuart, and T.J. Borden; and a wonderful recording session of Ingrid Laubrock's new orchestral music.

Spring begins quietly - looking forward to a May installation at CACNO in New Orleans with friends Holland Hopson and Jane Cassidy, and reuniting with Vic Rawlings, sadly saying goodbye as OpenSound finishes a fourteen-year run at Boston's Third Life Studios.

Summer: it is always a privilege of my life to be a member of the family for the Chosen Vale International Percussion Seminar, at the Enfield Shaker Museum in New Hampshire. Also looking forward to a guest appearance at the Emory Percussion Symposium.

The University of Alabama Percussion Studio hosts Scott Pollard, Jorge Variego and the University of Tennessee Electroacoustic Ensemble, and Megan Arns of the University of Missouri. You can see and hear some of our recent work here.
