Still have some work to do here, but it was fun hacking together a Processing program to test out phrase lengths as they relate to the overall structure of a composition.
Looking forward to trying the Nigori saké at Proper Saké in Nashville Friday night when I play a solo set for banjo and electronics. FMRL is presenting the event which also features Drunk Doctor. Nigori seems about right: unfiltered, slightly cloudy, a touch more texture…

Tomorrow night Jack Wright rolls through town again with his pants leg rolled up and Ron Stabinsky rolled into the mix. They’re playing together as Minimally Disturbing. Also on the bill is a duo of Scott Bazar with drummer Charles Pagano and a new incarnation of Chris Davenport’s Lvmber project. Lvmber features Davenport on drums; Will McGavin, didgeridoo; LaDonna Smith, strings; and myself, electric guitar and electronics. Opening is modular synthesist and former student, Gabe Rosser.

Happy to be playing at Rhizome in Washington DC for the first time this weekend.

This will by my first time sharing the stage with Jeff Barsky (Insect Factory) and a welcome reunion with Eric Hardiman (Rambutan). Rhizome looks like my kind of place–great concerts, residencies, exhibits, youth programs, and DIY workshops on everything from electronic instruments to fermentation to visual arts. In that spirit, I’ll be performing Crow Chases Red-tailed Hawk–a newer piece for invented instruments and live electronics– along with other works. No Appalachian banjo this time out.
My Dad saved this workbook for me. There’s no date inside but the fonts suggest early 1990s. #ArtsEntrepreneurship
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.
