And the band gets played

Is the name of my new piece for clarinet, string quartet, and audience. It gives five volunteers a good bit of control over what the players do onstage throughout most of the piece. A score will be posted here after the premiere concert, which will be given by L’ensemble Portmantô on February 23 at OFF Interarts in Montreal. I’m really looking forward to it.

If you’re here in LA, I have two shows coming up, on January 27 and 28, as part of Listening Alive!, a project put on by Synchromy, The Symbiosis Chamber Orchestra, and Music on Argyle. They’ll be premiering my piece Tiny Machine Designed to Make Altocumulus Clouds, which is for flute, viola, and bass.

That’s about it for now. There’s other big news on the way. Hope everyone had a good New Year.
