I’m playing at Barking Legs in Chattanooga tonight in an event co-hosted by the Shaking Ray Levi Society. I haven’t been there since 2001 with James Keepnews, so it’ll be great to return.

Barking Legs Theater 1307 Dodds Avenue
Along with playing some solo music for banjo and electronics, I’ll be collaborating with dancers and improvisers on a piece with video similar to the image above. I created the video my modeling the behavior of particles interacting with gravity using Processing. After the concert will be a short demo of my sensor-augmented banjo.
I’m participating in a panel discussion on unusual sound sources at Southern Sonic today. The panel is moderated by Dan Sharp and includes Andrew Raffo Dewar, Tim Feeney, Taylor Lee Shepherd and Rick Snow.

Cleaning and organizing for the new year; a place for everything and everything in its place. I’m loving these neoprene cable wranglers. I’ve added one for all my input devices (instruments, pedalboard, sensors) and one for the bundle of USB cables that runs to the laptop. A little dab of hot glue on all the power connectors for the finishing touch.
I’m a little disappointed that the city fixed the potholes on the street by my house. It means people in cars will feel ok driving faster. I was fine slowing down, plus the potholes were easy enough to dodge on my bike.
