Upcoming events

Happy New Year!

2019 is kicking off with two events I’m very excited about:

January 10, I will be doing an improv set and also premiering a new composition at The Brower Center in Berkeley, as part of the Other Minds’ Nature of Music series.

February 10, I will be installing a multi-channel piece in the Fern Room at the Lincoln Park Conservatory in Chicago, as part of Experimental Sound Studio’s Florasonic series. The piece will run for approximately 3 months.

Fraufraulein show

Billy and I will be playing a show in Oakland on Saturday, Sept. 1 with Horaflora and Nurse Betty. My first show in SF since the move and our first duo show since the pre-parent days!

My piece, “Even the Stains Pale,” will receive a reprise performance by the Anagram Ensemble as part of the Infrequent Seams Festival at the Firehouse Space on June 11th (facebook event). Documentation of the premiere in 2015 at the Stone can be found on the Experiments in Opera website here. Thanks to James Ilgenfritz for organizing!

Shows October/November

Two shows coming up!

Anagram Ensemble will be premiering a new composition of mine as part of James Ilgenfritz’ residency at the Stone. The piece is one of several short vocal works on the program, each created using cut-ups by William Burroughs from the newly-released book The Travel Agency is on Fire, by CUNY Press. The concert is part of the Experiments in Opera Series.
