A recent episode of Composer’s Voice featured my music played by Miolina and Craig Hultgren. The half-hour show was produced by Rob Voisey and aired this weekend on Manhattan Neightborhood Network’s Lifestyle channel. If you missed the broadcast you can see the episode on YouTube or Facebook.
The concert is presented by Culture Lab LIC at the Plaxall Gallery. It will be outdoors, weather permitting, but will move inside if necessary (in which case audience members must show proof of vaccination). I’ll play a few solo tunes with banjo and electronics and will join Miolina for trio arrangements of some of my original works.
We nailed down the big picture outlines of a new work for violin duo and live electronics. In fact, we pulled it into shape enough to present it on an informal concert for other residency artists.
We also arranged five of my original tunes for violin duo and banjo.
It was great to meet the other residents: Palaver Strings, Hint of Lime Brass, the Johnston brothers guitar duo and others. Also fun to walk the grounds (so many mushrooms!) and to try tomato wine from a local vineyard.
Tonight Miolina will celebrate the release of their latest recording a la BAMA with an online concert on the Hoover Library’s Live from My Living Room series. Appearing at the historic Greenwich House Music School, Mioi Takeda and Lynn Bechtold will perform violin duos by Mark Lackey, Kyle McGucken, Brian C. Moon, and Geni Skendo — followed by videorecorded works by Monroe Golden and myself.
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.
