Excited to have permission to use Ms. Dillard’s powerful text for my lyrics in Eclipse. Here is an excerpt from “Pre-Totality.” We are looking at maybe recording this later in the summer. Many thanks to chatterbird for the commission!

I re-orchestrated this and added a Baritone Sax line that I am now very attached to! Very fun playing with #4WAKO – the 4th Ward Afro-Klezmer small ensemble. We opened for #paalnilsen-love’s Large Group which was absolutely terrific!
many thanks to Unknown Vincent for his great documentation

A newly expanded version of my Wii remote drawing composition is at Nashville’s Adventure Science Center through May 13.
I developed the code to include 4 remotes instead of the usual 2 and there is now an option to fill in the circles and square animations. I am liking the improvements!
If you post any pix please tag with #concentrics so that I can see your lovely artwork!
