Current ProjectsI'm currently composing a trombone concerto for the one-and-only Joe Alessi (well, I think there's only one Joe Alessi. . . at the rate he's premiering works, it's possible cloning and/or genetic engineering is at play). The piece was commissioned by American Chamber Winds, and will be premiered at the 2017 WASBE Conference in Utrecht, Netherlands, under the baton of David Waybright. Very grateful to the Willson Center for the Arts and Humanities for supporting this project with a faculty research grant for the 2016-17 year.
Also working on a new piece for horn, violin, and electronics, for Joshua Michal. Josh will be performing and recording a series of newly-commissioned works next winter. Other upcoming projects include a new piece for viola and electronics for Kurt Rohde and a new collaborative electroacoustic work in collaboration with guitarist Dan Lippel, poet Olivia Clare, and choreographer Kate Ladenheim. We started this collaboration at the Pocantico Center as part of a Creative Residency from Composers Now, and hope to present the new piece later next season. More on these projects soon!
I am composing a new work for the Atlanta Chamber Players for their 2017-18 season, which I will be working on at a residency at Copland House in June 2017.
