I’d like to invite you to join me this Thursday, January 21 at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, where I’ll be performing a full concert of works involving guitar.
In addition to a couple of solos, I’m looking forward to being joined by percussionist Jude Traxler in the NY premiere of my Lutoslawski meets Pink Floyd- inspired “Unraveling” for electric guitar, vibraphone, and looping machines. I’ll also be performing my own realization of Steve Reich’s seminal work for electric guitar, “Electric Counterpoint.”
Rounding out the program, The Knells — featuring myself, Nina Berman, Charlotte Mundy, Blythe Gaissert-Levitt, Paul Orbell, Joe Higgins, Jeff Gretz, and Jude Traxler — will join forces with software artist Joshue Ott for a full set of 21st century amplified art song. Augmented by Josh’s swirling, realtime graphic animations, we’ll perform several new tunes in addition to some material from our eponymous 2013 release.
