lots to talk about….

Tomorrow, I’ll be heading to Kittery, ME for a special performance as part of Sean Reardon’s Unique States series. This is an exciting opportunity to play in another section of New England with some great musicians.  Here’s the deal:

“*- UNIQUE STATES -* an event series which investigates the strategies of group dynamic with music and sound, composition and improvisation. Each event will feature three artists who have lived or are living in one of three states – Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts; each of the artists will represent one of these three states. With an initial list of over fifty artists willing to participate, a list randomizing program from random (dot) org was utilized to curate a triad of performers for each event. Each group prepares to perform by sharing contact information, and is encouraged to communicate in the time before their event to create a conceptual framework. *UNIQUE STATES* could be considered a platform for artists to exchange information together, interacting in a way they might not have otherwise, and possibly emerging with creative and innovative ideas.”

The show will consist of three solo sets: myself, id m theft able and Nat Baldwin.  We will then play as a trio. If you are in the area, come by and say hello!

Details: Unique States at BUOY – 2 Government St. Kittery, ME 03904.  Should get going around 8.

Bhob Rainey and I played our first set as a duo at the Outpost in Cambridge last week.  Thanks to all who came out on a cold night.  Bhob and I were most pleased and you’ll be hearing from us again.

The 2009 release schedule is getting a little bananas. So be it.

I’m happy to announce that my duo cd with NYC sound artist Richard Garet is out now on Unframed Recordings.  Details are coming together for a March release show in Brooklyn as I type, watch this space for information.

My new, self-titled/untitled solo cd on Students of Decay is heading into production.  The first 100 copies are being offered with a bonus cdr for a special price.  The bonus is a live recording from the Swedenborg Chapel in Cambridge, MA last year called “The Cold Piano”.  Also out on Students of Decay in the coming months is a rethink of some soundtrack music I did a few years ago for the film Human Heart Explodes.  The cdr is called “Exploding Heart Mixes” and is an expansion of some of the cues I developed along with string players Vic Rawlings, Mike Bullock and Katt Hernandez.  I’m pleased that this music is seeing the light of day.

There’s lots of other stuff in the works.  I shouldn’t talk about it too much.

As mentioned previously, I will be making my first trip to the West Coast in April to be part of the Activating The Medium festival in San Francisco. Tony Conrad will headline the bill and  I’ll be collaborating with film maker Paul Clipson on what is shaping up to be an exciting piece for sound and video.

I’ll be in SF/Oakland for a few days.  It will be all about record shopping, burritos and omokase.  Pretty psyched.

Speaking of SF, Jefre-Cantu Ledesma had me do some Q and A for his great Root Blog recently. Check it out.

As always, get in touch if you like.  See you soon.
