Ayre tour finishes and it’s on to Ainadamar in Philadelphia

Yet another round of goodbyes wrapped up the most recent Ayre tour.

It’s always hard to say goodbye to the incredible people that I spent the last two weeks with. I have learned so much from them and love every moment spent making fun of ourselves, etc. I feel very lucky to have been involved with the project and can’t wait to do it again. Holland, here I come.

No rest for the wicked. I was in Boston for no more than 14 hours, and hopped on the train to Philadelphia. Wow. So Here I am, sitting in a fab 2br apartment. I can stumble out the door and eat at any one of the local establishments. (Today I ate at Little Pete’s an all nite diner stronghold in a truly gentrified neighborhood). There’s a Steinway in the next room begging me to write music on it. There’s the ubiquitous high speed connection that feeds me plenty of distraction and lets me sit on facebook for hours at a time. There’s even DirecTV satellite business happening.

But much more importantly there’s the Curtis School of Music around the corner. This school and these kids are pretty amazing. Every day things at the school stop dead for tea time. How cool is that? Anyway, I’ve been asked to man the laptop once again in their production of Ainadamar that’s going down at the Kimball Center here in Philadelphia. Good stuff.

In the meantime I am working on a couple deep techno tracks as well as formulating ideas for a couple big pieces that I will be writing this fall. More to follow.
