It was my great pleasure to have Cristiano Bocci over for an exhilarating afternoon of music this past Saturday. Cris was in the US to work with a mathematician colleague at Auburn, and decided to stop by the Washington DC area on his way back to Italy. I’m delighted that he did. (And it was by an auspicious coincidence that his plane touched down at Dulles Airport the day Avant Music News named our forthcoming Non-places as a pick of the week.)
Great thanks to Mike Borella of Avant Music News for a nice, pre-release review of Non-Places. It’ll be out on 30 September, so stay tuned…
I’m happy to be included on three tracks of Gary Rouzer‘s new Bandcamp collection of recent solo and small ensemble work. It’s a nice snapshot of some of the ideas Gary’s been exploring these past few years, and includes fine performances from both local and international artists.
Many thanks to Avant Music News for selecting Lunge as a pick of the week.
Michael C. Heller, the author of the recent Loft Jazz: Improvising New York in the 1970s, joins me for a conversation in the current issue of Perfect Sound Forever. (My review of the book for Avant Music News is here.)
Thanks to Slovenia’s Radio Student for playing Rusted Boats in a Foggy Harbor, a track from my 2016 collaboration with Chris Lynn, Doubting All Things Aligned. (I don’t understand Slovenian and can’t be sure, but I think the host introduced the piece by reading from my Notes on Field Recording, which appeared in Percorsi Musicali in May 2016.)
A new collaboration with Cristiano Bocci, forthcoming on the Acustronica netlabel.
