Detail from Still Yet Already Again

Violin duo Miolina (Lynn Bechtold and Mioi Takeda) will perform my piece Still Yet Already Again on a live-streamed concert March 10 presented by UC Irvine. The piece is for violin duo with live electronics, and for this concert I’ve prepared a video driven by the sounds of the instruments and the processed audio.

Miolina will also perform works by Lynn Bechtold, Jean-Baptiste Favory, Mari Kimura and Milica Paranosic.
