My Temporary Public Artwork Constellation won a place on the #nashvillescene ‘s Best of Nashville 2017 list!
Here is the article for Best Projected Artwork.
Many thanks to Joe Nolan at the Scene and to the Metro Nashville Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts for their support of this project.
I cannot express how excited I am to be selected for a funding award to create temporary public art in Nashville! It is a dream come true! More details to come and if you are interested in having me bring this interactive projection and sound install to your neighborhood or community, please let me know!
Funding Awards to Learning Lab Artists
What an amazing honor to meet Dr. Jane Chu this morning!
I was tapped along with three other lucky Learning Lab artists to attend a small meeting this morning with NEA’s Chairman Jane Chu and Ayanna Hudson, the NEA Director of Arts Education. Ann Pope the Executive Director of the Tennessee Arts Commission was there and the discussion was hosted by our amazing Nashville Metro Arts Commission.
Chairman Chu hosted a Town Hall Meeting this afternoon and shared a little more of her personal story as a classical pianist, instrumentalist and artist.
What an inspiring spokesperson for the importance and power of art.
I was interviewed by Nina Cordona for Nashville Public Radio last week and the interview and article are now online.

I really enjoyed meeting her and this project has been a blast.
Tool Fire Rain sound file coming soon!
I am thrilled to have received a composition commission from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission, the Bonnarroo Works Fund and the Community Foundation of Tennessee.
The call submission dictated creating a new work based on one of our many great public art installations in Nashville, TN. I chose Chris Fennell’s Tool Fire, a sculpture made of shovels, picks and other tools used to clean up after our devastating 2010 flood.
I played the sculpture with mallets and a bow, added bowed cross-tuned upright bass and recorded a rainstorm that came through during my work sessions to create Tool Fire Rain.
Link coming soon!
