It has been forever and a day since I’ve updated this News section. It’s about time! If you haven’t already, check out the updates on the Audio and Projects pages to give an idea of recent activities.
The Fringe Festival was great fun as usual. Devotedly, Sincerely Yours and Volcano, My Love were both a great way to connect with audiences. The audience seemed to “get it”. Great thanks to both Kate Galvin and Keila Cordova for having me aboard their respective teams.
I have just finished a fast-tracked composition for Krista DeNio, of Edith & Me fame, for use at her residency at Ursinus College in Pennsylvania. There she’ll be directing a dance production investigating the aspects of trans*i*tion. The eighteen minute piece passes through dense strings, Tibetan gongs, minimal beats, and scratch samples of Steve Miller. The formal showing is at Ursinus on November 17th, 2012. Tick-tock…
In other activities, I am developing sound score material Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers’ 2013 Spring . The show dates have just been announced: March 22nd and 23rd, 2013, Friday 8pm, and Saturday 3pm and 8pm respectively, at Drexel University’s Mandell Theater. It’s never too soon to get tickets for this event, they sell out in advance.
And last but not least, I have joined the double bass section of the Abington Symphony Orchestra. Its a five-concert season, and its a joy to be part. Special thanks to my bass teacher and music mentor Stephanie Patterson for getting me involved. Next showing: December 16th, 2013, Sunday at 4 and 7pm. They are great concerts, as the standing-room only crowds will attest to.
