All musicians owe so much to many irreplaceable mentors. One of mine is Maestro Robert Moody, conductor, who commissioned my 1st orchestral piece when I was only 16. He's wrapping up his tenure with The Portland Symphony Orchestra with a performance of "Alternative Energy." Always adventurous & approachable, a great American maestro! Thanks Bob!
Congrats to Nicolas Blanc and The Joffrey Ballet for doing such an outstanding job with "Beyond the Shore," based on my piece "The B-Sides." Their Modern Masters program runs through Feb 18 and includes a host of other cool pieces - check it out, Chicago!
Spent the weekend prepping for Mercury Soul's Feb 23rd show Prismatic: The Color of Sound. Worked out the DJs sets, polished up the electro-acoustic interludes for classical musicians / DJs, and wrote some all-new music that I'll talk about more as it develops. Stay tuned and be sure to RSVP!
So excited for this: I'm coming back to DNA Lounge Feb 23 with Mercury Soul for our killer new color-and-light themed show, Prismatic: The Color of Sound. We're pushing this production to the limit through an array of intricate lighting, projections, and art installations designed to enhance the music experience. We'll have a program of all color-inspired compositions woven in between DJ sets by Justin Reed, JOill, and me. Get your tickets while they last! Can't wait to see everyone out there.
Thank you so much to everybody for the birthday wishes!
I'm re-emerging from asocial media, ie my studio, where I've been finishing up an oratorio called "Children of Adam" about, well, makin' babies.
Creation and recreation and yes, procreation. For example, next to sacred texts like Genesis, this line by Walt Whitman: "Singing the phallus!"
