Brandon Bell did an amazing job premiering my piece 500 Great Things About Wichita for percussion and computer. It was commissioned by Brandon with the support of a Presser Graduate Music Award from Rice University.
Rara Avis for piano, computer and video was commissioned last Thursday at the Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology at Connecticut College. It was a wonderful collaboration between Carmen Montoya, Scott Marosek, and myself. It was great to meet the staff at the Ammerman Center and the other commissioned artists.
I performed my piece Secret Society for the Jean Gebser Internation Convention held at Rice University on October 19th. Here’s the video (a tripod and luck, no separate recording!). There were some really cool pieces on the concert by Hsiao-Lan Wang, Dave Gedosh, Dan Zajicek, and Bryce Ingmire. I plan to record and release a DVD of these types of performances this summer with much higher audio and video standards.
