I’m a part of a few groups/bands/organizations:
I’m part of this group with lovelies Cory Bracken, Amirtha Kidambi, Ellen O’Meara, Dave Ruder and Joe White. We present monthly events at Exapno in Brooklyn–playing our own music, covers, rep., etc. as well as programming other performers and composers.
Performers Forum is directed by Cory Bracken and involves the same crew of miscreants as The Sweat Lodge. We present monthly fora (also at Exapno) featuring musicians who speaking about their own music–equal parts lecture, performance and discussion.
I work for the BC-CCM running labs and helping TA for classes. We have concerts each semester as well as the Biannual International Electroacoustic Music Festival.
Since summer 2010, I’ve worked at The Walden School’s Young Musicians Program. YMP is a summer program for young composers to develop their musicianship, compositional skills and other musical endeavors. I’ve also attended all three levels of their Teacher Training Institute, a great intro to Walden for those too old to attend YMP.
Awesome New York label releasing albums by cool composers/ensembles/improvisers. Run by total badass Sam Pluta who I help out sometimes with interny work.
Jazz group with Lauren Lee, David Whitwell and Pat O’Reilley. We play almost every Wednesday at Kupersmith on the Lower East Side in NYC
In the past,
I’ve worked with these lovely groups of people as a composer or performer or other role. You should check out what they do!
Flute quartet from the San Jose area dedicated to performing repertoire and new works for the flute as well as educating young musicians.
New York-based new music ensemble with incredible musicians and a diverse repertoire.
Great percussionists making great music, doing interesting programming and hitting things good and hard.
A great ensemble in Philadelphia that has been performing new music for over 25 years. They’re really been a boon to Philadelphia’s composers and music audiences, and they have consistently focused on supporting local and young composers.
Run by the inimitable Andrea Clearfield, my former teacher and mentor in Philadelphia. The Salon has been going on for over 25 years, and it has served countless numbers of performers and audience members over time.
The Three Wise Men
An Organ trio I used to be a part of in Philadelphia with my friends Joe Chernus and Dave Cifelli
This was a project led by the AWESOME artist George Ferrandi during her residency at the Fleischer Art Memorial in Philadelphia. It involved all sorts of interesting elements and culminated in a night parade through the streets of South Philly. Check out George’s current studio/gallery/miracle space, Wayfarers.
Octet of musicians who performed Dave Ruder’s Why Lie? – 100 pieces for unspecified instrumentation written in 4-stave diamond clef scores.
I also performed this year at the Electronic Music Midwest festival.
