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
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 am thrilled to have ConCentrics 3.0 installed at Nashville’s Adventure Science Center. I have recoded it to include 4 Wii remotes (which I encourage you to use all at once) and it now includes additional shapes and fills if you hit the A buttons on each unit.
The White remote controls the triple theremin and the color wave.Tag with #concentrics so I can find you and if you have a group going, let me know and I will try to meet you down there.
Interactive installations celebrating
Women in Music Technology
April 21st at Georgia Tech’s Ferst Center
On April 21 I will be visiting Georgia Tech to install several
interactive projects at the Ferst Center for their Women in Music Technology event. My plan is to bring the robotic drum, Constellation and ConCentrics. Please tell your Atlanta friends!I am making plans for a beginning creative code workshop here in Nashville also so please let me know if you might be interested. I think it will be late April but I’m still firming things up.
Thanks for tuning in and Happy Spring!
Many thanks to Joseph E. Morgan for his review of Eclipse!
After intermission Robbie Lynn Hunsinger’s Eclipse was performed. Hunsinger’s work “draws on traditions of free improvisation, Appalachian fiddle techniques, and contemporary classical influences” to create a programmatic collage accompanied by visualizations projected on the screen behind. From the strange instrumentation (music box piano, Tibetan singing bowls) to eerie electronics, the performance was mesmerizing.
