NEW COMMISSION: Trio for amplified violin, viola, and narrator

I’m excited to announce that I will be collaborating with the Third Angle Ensemble on a new piece scored for amplified violin, viola, and narrator! The new trio will be part of “Heaving Voices 4.0,” a concert series devoted to works featuring spoken text against live music.

I’ll be using a text titled Frozen Smolder by Portland author and poet, Sandra Stone. The new trio will (likely) also be under this name.

Call for Scores Selection: Two Miniatures

I’m happy to announce that my sax quartet – TWO MINIATURES – has been selected for performance during Vox Novus’ 60×60 Mix in Louisiana.

From their website:

Vox Novus and Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts Dance Department are delighted to collaborate on a special edition of 60×60 focused on Louisiana.

Because of the structure of the concert, there will be no late seating and no intermission.

60×60 is a one-hour-long show made by sequencing 60 pre-recorded pieces of music by 60 different composers. Each piece a minute in length or shorter. 60×60 has been presented in many performance formats including TV shows, radio shows, multimedia and multidisciplinary events, as well as published several albums of works. Since 2003, 60×60 has received thousands of submissions from over 30 countries. Highlighting the work of a great many artists and composers, 60×60 testifies to the vibrancy of contemporary composition by presenting a diverse array of styles, aesthetics, and techniques being used today.

There will be two performances – April 10th and 11th – at the Louisiana school for Math, Science, Art and Dance.
