Here’s a lovely performance of my piece A Long Line of Clouds Just Above the Trees for violin duo and live electronic. The piece was played by Miolina: Lynn Bechtold and Mioi Takeda, violins, at their recent concert at The Skyscraper Museum in New York.
See more Miolina videos–including other works from the same concert–on their channel on YouTube.
The violin duo Miolina will perform my music at The Skyscraper Museum in New York City this week. They’ll perform the piece we developed together last year, A Long Line of Clouds Just Above the Trees for violin duo and live electronics. I’ll be there to help with the electronics and enjoy the view of lower Manhattan from the museum windows.
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.
