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.
Really excited to hear Maria Chavez and Sandy Ewen together again! I had the privilege of playing with them once in Austin, TX. I remember the chalk dust left on the floor after our set from the chunks of sidewalk chalk Sandy used to bow her guitar strings.
This is great news for those of you who are quite happy with the status quo. For anyone looking forward to the new paradigm promised by the Reality Shift online art exhibit (as I am), we’ll just have to live with the current state of the world for a few more weeks. Word is the exhibit will be live in early March.
These new practices transcend the linearity of the musical score and recording, not by rejecting them, but rather by including and opening them up, introducing interactivity, agency, interpretation, exploration, collaboration, and environmental factors.

This list goes a long way toward explaining tendencies in my work: interactivity, agency, interpretation, exploration, collaboration, and environmental factors.
I’m moving my blogging onto my main site and retiring the Field Guide blog. The blog has been great–full of good posts and activity–and it has developed into a nice resource and record of my work over the last decade (plus!). But it’s been harder and harder to maintain, so I’m pulling the plug.
