Upcoming Recording Releases

  • New Dynamic Records will be releasing an album on April 24, 2016, with a recording of Transverse Fractures, a short flashy piece for flute and piano, recorded by Orlando Cela and Christina Wright-Ivanova.

  • The EMPiRES label will be releasing a recording of Pyromancer (my third piece for bassoon and electronics) in April 2016, alongside a bunch of cool electroacoustic music by Cody Brookshire, John Hennecken, Adam Scott Neal, Hanna Lisa Stefansson, Rob Seaback, and others.

  • The Sydney Conservatorium Wind Symphony recorded Hivemind in the studio back in October, and will be releasing it later this year.

Current Projects

I'm currently composing a trombone concerto for the one-and-only Joe Alessi (well, I think there's only one Joe Alessi. . . at the rate he's premiering works, it's possible cloning and/or genetic engineering is at play). The piece was commissioned by American Chamber Winds, and will be premiered at the 2017 WASBE Conference in Utrecht, Netherlands, under the baton of David Waybright. Very grateful to the Willson Center for the Arts and Humanities for supporting this project with a faculty research grant for the 2016-17 year.

Also working on a new piece for horn, violin, and electronics, for Joshua Michal. Josh will be performing and recording a series of newly-commissioned works next winter. Other upcoming projects include a new piece for viola and electronics for Kurt Rohde and a new collaborative electroacoustic work in collaboration with guitarist Dan Lippel, poet Olivia Clare, and choreographer Kate Ladenheim. We started this collaboration at the Pocantico Center as part of a Creative Residency from Composers Now, and hope to present the new piece later next season. More on these projects soon!

The Composers Now organization has nominated two composers -myself and Jin Hi Kim- for the 2nd annual Composers Now Creative Residencies. I will spend a week working on a new project in collaboration with choreographer Kate Ladenheim (who I previously worked with on HackPolitik) at the Pocantico Center, at the Rockefeller Estate in Tarrytown, New York.
