Much has happened since the end of 2014, so here’s a rundown.
Back in May of last year I wrote an ambient piece, entitled Days Will Come, for the newly born daughter of a friend of mine, Kyle Hovatter. An 18 minute excerpt of that almost three hour work will be coming out on an album of music all written for Kyle’s daughter. Also featured is a remix Kyle did of an electronic piece of mine. You can check out and order the album here. (Keep an eye and an ear out for my own bandcamp page coming soon, where you will be able to stream the entire piece.)
The New Music Gathering had its inaugural event here in San Francisco. I was in attendance for most of it and had a fantastic time meeting with friends old and new. A lot has been said about the event already, and I urge you to check everything out. For now I will just say I look forward to this hopefully becoming an annual occurrence to help make our community that much stronger.
Areon Flutes did a stellar job of Spirals Slinkies Staircases at the SFCM Alumni recital last week, you can check out a review of the concert here.
Keep an ear on Music From Other Minds. I have produced about three episodes so far and will be hosting this week’s. Tune in Fridays at 11pm (PST) on KALW 91.7 FM.
Lastly, the video of the I Smoke My Pipe is now up. Enjoy.
