Long overdue post! So many new happenings and goings on. I am extremely lucky to have such a varied artistic experience. Over the past several years, I have gradually transitioned in my art life from feeling mostly like a bass player to feeling more like an improviser/composer/performer. As life happens, I had the honor recently of having my first-ever 'world premiere' of a piece written for someone else--the marvelous percussionist Chris Sies. The concert was on February 14th at Trinosophes, Detroit, put on by Aepex Contemporary.
The piece, 'moved by ambition, but also by an obscure loyalty,' was written as an environment for Chris to perform within, and involved amplifying/affecting a snare drum and cymbal through three other snare drums. The title comes from Jorge Luis Borges' short story, 'The Dead Man.'
I send emails occasionally about upcoming performances. They're very cordial.
