Here’s a video of the premiere performance of Birds of Passage in an Egg-shaped World performed by students at CalArts under the direction of Tim Feeney.
Performers: Abigail Whitman, Eliot Burk, Bar Landau, Margo Harms, Matthew LeVeque,Victor Sintchak,Alexander Reyes, Nestor Gonzalez and Tim Feeney
I created the instruments using generative design techniques. They were produced using digital fabrication: 3D printing and laser cutting/engraving. I’ll post more info about the instruments later, including OpenSCAD code to produce them yourself.
This work was supported in part by a grant from the University of Alabama Office for Research and Economic Development (ORED) lnternal Funding Small Grants Program.
So happy to be returning to Houston, TX on Monday night. I’ll be playing a solo set with video and an improvised set with bassist, Thomas Helton. Helton will also play a solo set. The concert is part of the They, Who Sound series presented by Nameless Sound and Lawndale.
It’s been almost 10 years since I’ve played in Houston. The last time was on another They, Who Sound event in September 2012(!). And it’s been at least that long since I played with Thomas, so this duo performance is long overdue. In fact, the last time I played with Thomas, I was performing on soprano sax–that’s how long it’s been.
