Performances and Upcoming Release

Another year goes by.........

Well this is shaping up to be a fun and interesting summer! I have some performances coming up and my new album should be out by the fall. And a few interesting projects of note.

On Thursday August 7, I will be perform at Quinn's In Beacon, NY as part of their "Extreme Thursdays" series. This series is curated by my old friend and comrade James Keepnews.
Currently, the plan is to do 3 improvised pieces, each one representing a different phase in my lengthy body of work. There will be a performance with live radio, an expanded guitar piece as well as my more recent adaptation of Mozart's Magic Flute. The latter two pieces will include a projected media component. Showtime is at 9pm. Thanks James! For more info on Quinn's have a clicky here

In keeping with the upstate NY theme (I am a native, afterall!!) I'll be heading further north to Acra, NY on Friday August 8 for a performance at the Wave Farm that will be broadcast on WGXC 90.7 FM. This 2.5 hour broadcast will be similar to the Quinn's show (minus the media component) but will also consist of a collaborative piece with poet Patricia Kositzky and perhaps a few more surprises. Thanks, Galen Joseph Hunter and Tom Roe for this fun opportunity! Showtime will be at 7pm.

My next album of tortured Baroque music is finally done and slated for a September 2014 release! Baroque Treasures consists of my algorithmically improvised interpretations of pieces by Handel. Vivaldi, Albinoni and Scarlatti. This will be out on my Praxis Classics label. I must say that I have not gotten sick of this album yet, which could be a good sign. More info to come...
