ICF 2022 Summer Festival Features Snakeskin

Cellist Craig Hultgren will perform my piece Snakeskin (verso) for cello and live electronics on Saturday, June 4 at 3pm during the Iowa Composers Forum 2022 Summer Festival of New Music. The festival will be held at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.

I wrote Snakeskin (verso) for Craig after traveling to Iowa to work with him on the piece. Along with Craig’s invaluable input, the piece owes quite a bit to the region. I worked out most of the structure while sitting on a hop-covered patio at a brewery in downtown Decorah. And the title was inspired by visits to Effigy Mounds National Monument in Harpers Ferry, Iowa and Cahokia Mounds in Collinsville, Illinois.

It’s nice to see that some of my previous Badstar collaborators, Charles Nichols and Zach Duer, also have a piece on the program.

Flyer for Miolina’s Concert

Violin duo Miolina (Lynn Bechtold and Mioi Takeda) will premiere my piece A Long Line of Clouds Just Above the Trees in a concert Monday March 28 at the Moody Recital Hall in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

The work is for violin duo with live electronics. It was created with the support of the Collaborative Arts Research Initiative (CARI) at the University of Alabama. We workshopped the piece during a Summer 2021 residency at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute in New Hampshire.

Also on the program are compositions by Lynn Bechtold Cecilia Franke, Mark Lackey, Jessica Meyer, Alvin Singleton and Geni Skendo.
