Craig Hultgren will premiere my work Snakeskin (verso) for cello and live electronics tonight at Georgia State.

neoPhonia is presenting Craig in a program of contemporary music for solo cello. The concert includes works by three Georgia State faculty: Nickitas Demos, Robert Scott Thompson, and Marc LeMay.
I’m excited to premiere a new work for invented instruments and electronics on Saturday as part of the Birmingham New Music Festival. Crow Chases Red-tailed Hawk uses bullroarers and other instruments that make sound when swung overhead on the end of a string. I’ve been working on prototypes for these instruments–whistles, buzzers, hummers, swoopers–for the last few months and this will be their first public outing.

Here’s something to puzzle over
Here‘s an engaging snapshot of poet Hank Lazer. Hank and I have been collaborating for the last few years. We have three new pieces that will be released soon, and our multimedia version of his Brush Mind 2: Second Hand will be presented again this fall. Stay tuned for details.
Not sure how I missed this video when it was posted. An alap. A song about a catfish. An elegy for a late-model Chevy Impala.
