With another year of school beginning, I thought I'd take some time to recount all my adventures from this past summer!
Certainly my most active summer so far, this time around I:
–Hit the road with my friends Aaron Butler, Knee Play (Sam Ferris-Morris and Justin West) and Andrew Seivert to play Steve Reich's "Four Organs," Julius Eastman's "Gay Guerrilla," and Knee Play's color projection improvisation piece in Louisville, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Detriot
–Began playing shows with Andrew Seivert as Neutrals, including a date at the International Noise Conference 2016: Cincinnati
–Participated in the 2016 Chosen Vale International Percussion Seminar, where I worked with Doug Perkins, Amy Garapic, Tim Feeney, Jim Culley, and other esteemed faculty, as well as premiered/recorded a new work by Feeney entitled "Breathing Box"
–Continued my east coast traveling to Princeton for a SoSI 2015 reunion!
A very exciting summer full of old friends, new friends, and great new experiences. I thank everyone who helped along the way (especially Rob Funkhouser in Indy, Tim Barnes at Dreamland, and Zac Brunell at Detroit Bureau of Sound for help booking the Four Organs tour!) for a wonderful few months!
