I had a great time at this year’s E&P. Two nights of great programming. It was particularly cool to have so much involvement from outside Austin this year. Below is a photo of the performance I did with Nate Bartlett of Madison, WI. He performed Anchialine.
On Friday & Saturday November 14th & 15th NMC will launch its third annual fusing of instruments and voice with and cutting-edge (and classic) electronic technology. This year’s presentation features twice as much great music as in years past with special guest marimbist Nathaniel Bartlett and a rare performance of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s four channel electronic work from 1960 “Kontakte.”

I’ll be performing with Nick Hennies, Josh Ronsen, and Henna Chou Sunday November 9th at Salvage Vanguard. We’ll be playing Michael Pisaro’s piece “Sometimes” [harmony series no. 1] for four musicians playing sustained tones.
I’ve been working on the piece this week and I’m really excited to hear how it turns out on Sunday evening. The score is fairly open, and pretty long — coming in at a little over an hour. Although it looks simple, the score is deceptively challenging in that the performer is required to make critical decisions of pitch and duration within the form.
