Molly Joyce @ Porgy and Bess

One of my dearest friends and amazing collaborators, Molly Joyce, is going to be premiering a piece I wrote for her for her toy organ, voice, and electronics, at the legendary Porgy and Bess jazz club in Vienna! I am bummed that I can't be in one of the coolest cities ever to experience it, but honored that she will be playing it there.

Silence is a looking bird --- an evening of new percussion works

I'm so honored to have been asked to write a new percussion piece for the fabulous Tyler Cunningham. I've based it on poetry by one of my favorite writers, Heather Christle; though the piece takes on a life of its own and is something quite new for me. A bunch of people I admire are also contributing pieces to this wonderful project, including Jack Giulilmetti, Jack Frerer, Jon Cziner, and Julie Zhu.
