New Commissions and Upcoming Releases!

On April 24, 2015, the Emory University Wind Ensemble will be premiering Astrarium, a concert opener commissioned to open the program featuring the premiere Joseph Schwantner's new Concerto for Wind Orchestra.

Transverse Fractures, a short piece for flute and piano, has been recorded by Orlando Cela and Christina Wright-Ivanova. It will be released this season on New Dynamic Records.

I've received a General Commission from the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition to compose a new piece for Boston-based EQ Ensemble. The new work will be premiered in the 2015-16 season.

Hivemind

Hivemind (commissioned by the Sydney Conservatorium Wind Symphony) received two stellar premiere performances in July in Verona and Venice. Check out the recording on SoundCloud:

Keep an eye out for more performances of Hivemind in the USA this season!

HackPolitik

HackPolitik, my electroacoustic ballet based on hacker collective Anonymous and the rise and fall of splinter group LulzSec, had a great run of performances at HERE Space Manhattan in July, 2014. It was dubbed a New York Times critic's pick (not bad, eh? They even called the piece "refreshingly relevant"). A huge congrats to choreographer Kate Ladenheim and The People Movers dance company for putting together a fantastic show.

I was recently interviewed by the American Composers Forum about HackPolitik, my process, and composition in general. You can read the interview here.

The HackPolitik CD has been released by Innova Records, and is now available through most major online music distributors. Visit the HackPolitik Page for more info, video, press, and all things HackPolitik-related.
