Piano and percussion duo Sole Nero (Jess Johnson, piano; Anthony Di Sanza, percussion) is using my video for their performances of John Luther Adam’s Red Arc/Blue Veil. The two performances take place on February 22nd in Madison, Wisconsin, and on May 5th at the University of Iowa. When Jess contacted me about using my video, I was so excited. In addition to these performances, I am now slated to compose a new piece for them. Look forward to that and some other projects in the coming months.
On Wednesday, November 16th, University of Houston’s new music ensemble, AURA, gave a repeat performance of their concert at Sam Houston State University. Below are some still frames from the video. I hope to post the complete work online soon.
Next Monday, November 14, 2011, the AURA new music ensemble will be having their fall concert titled VOYAGES. I’m excited, because a new video work of mine will be adding visual counterpoint to John Luther Adams’ Red Arc/Blue Veil for vibraphone, piano, and electronics. Rob Smith, their director, graciously commissioned me to create this work, and I’m totally stoked about it. Below are more details. Also, make sure to check out the promo video!
