Very exciting to bring an art & technology Professional Development session to the Performing Arts Exchange! Come see me Tuesday at 1030 in Orlando!
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
Looking forward to playing some tunes with Roger Ruzow and 4WAKO in Atlanta at Gallery 992! We start at 9 opening for the amazing Paal-Nilsen Love Large Unit.
I will be a guest artist with Roger Ruzow’s 4th Ward Afro-Klezmer Orchestra on Wed June 13. It’s been awhile since I have played free jazz and I am really looking forward to it. Roger and I played and recorded together a number of times with Gold Sparkle Band and as a duet back years ago in Atlanta and Chicago.I remember having a lot of fun on live radio as well on WREK. Excited to be joining him!

I will be speaking about grants and also demo-ing a project or two at the Tenn Craft meeting this Thursday. Come say hi if you make it! You don’t have to be a member to attend.
It was an amazing evening! I may have programmed too many knobs to control…or just enough. It’s hard to say but controlling visuals and sound input cues with a chamber ensemble is pretty thrilling.
Eclipse went very well and I hope to have some video up soon.
Here is a link to the wonderful Critic’s Pick from John Pitcher at the Nashville Scene which came out the day of the concert.
I had a lovely time talking with composer and Classical 91.1 radio host Kara McLeland! She has just published an article about Eclipse.
Many thanks to @91Classical and @karamcleland.
