A new collaboration including Tuscaloosa colleagues Holland Hopson, Andrew Raffo Dewar, and the legendary composer and saxophonist Anthony Braxton grew from his spring 2015 residency at the University of Alabama. In early August 2015 the quartet recorded four hours of new music, combining improvisation, fragments of music from older compositions, and a new system of performance logic and graphic notation, ZIM Music, unique in Braxton's output.
Feeney joined Braxton's 10+1tet for the 2016 Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee, for a performance praised by the Guardian, the New York Times, the New Yorker, and Rolling Stone. The Tri-Centric Foundation released a recording of this performance on its New Braxton House Bootleg Series in December 2016.
For Contemporary Chaos Practices Feeney was part of a large ensemble led by saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock, and featuring other soloists Mary Halvorson, Kris Davis, and Nate Wooley. Intakt released the record in November 2018, and it was featured in strong reviews by critics including Phil Freeman for the Wire, Nate Chinen for WBGO, and Peter Margasak.
Outside of Meridian, Feeney and Sarah Hennies work and record frequently, most recently in August 2016 on several projects for Buffalo's Silo City, the collection of abandoned grain elevators on the Buffalo River. Rhizom.es released Nests, the first piece from this collaboration, in November 2017.
Feeney and Dominic Lash recorded James Saunders's overlay (1) / overlay (2), for several layers of contrabass and bass drum sound. The Rhizome.s label released the piece as part of Lash's Performance in January 2016.
