New Releases, New Projects

I'm excited to begin working on new projects for some incredible soloists: new electroacoustic pieces for flutist Orlando Cela, and pianist Keith Kirchoff are currently in the works. A short flute and piano piece of mine from 2009, Transverse Fractures, is being recorded by Orlando Cela and pianist Christina Wright for inclusion on an album of new works to be released by Indiana University Southeast's label, New Dynamic Records.

More news regarding the release of the studio recording (recorded at the immaculate WGBH Fraser Studio) is coming soon. Stay tuned . . .

HackPolitik in the news

HackPolitik, my evening-length electroacoustic ballet composed in collaboration with Juventas New Music Ensemble and the People Movers contemporary dance, received two fantastic premiere performances in November, and received this glowing review from the Boston Musical Intelligencer.

The ballet has been the subject of recent feature articles and interviews in Forbes, Boston Magazine, CNet, The Clyde Fitch Report, and The Daily Dot, among others. It's very exciting to see such a wide response to this ambitious collaboration, and follow up performances in New York City are currently in-the-works! Stay tuned for video recordings of the premiere . . .

Premiere by Solar Winds

Solar Winds premiered Danzas Mecánicas at Brandeis University's Slosberg Hall in November, alongside works by Reicha, Cage, Berio, and Fine. The Justice's review of the piece had this to say:

"[Danzas Mecánicas] was modern but not overly inscrutable, experimental yet cohesive . . . The harsh dissonances and rhythms, slightly more syncopated and abstract than tango, fit in nicely with the dark humor from the Berio piece -- a serious musicality, with a bit of humor in spite of its tone." - - full review here
