Well, for spelling my name right you should be rewarded! Though I have nothing to offer but the gift of music. And, actually, I am trying in most cases to sell that, so it's hardly a gift...anyway...
Come on in and have a look around -
surely I can't charge you for that!
got back from Scandinavia - vacation
mostly, but I did manage to hook up
with my friend / staggeringly good
percussionist and nice guy
Anders Åstrand, who invited me to
play a little improv with him at a
St. Jakobs summer music series
Heard back from Tapspace
- very happy to announce that I signed
a contract for Smoke
that they have begun working on it.
Look for it soon!
Description from last year: The
work was designed as a companion piece
to the old stand-by, Bicksa
However, this piece differs in
the following respects: It's almost 10
minutes long; it has keyboard
percussion for contrast, and since it
was written for the Vienna
Conservatory it somehow feels more
"European" if that's at all an
adjective - It recalls some of the
textures I used in the 2006 comission,
by N. Zivkovic for Ensemble
dress - rehearsal of the piece is on
youtube if you want to check it out!
If you are interested in getting a
copy, contact Tapspace
feverishly on a new concerto for
Symphonic Orchestra and percussion
soloist - and I arrogantly intend
to premier the work here is
Pocatello with the Idaho
State Civic Symphony
Keep posted for more updates!
