Upcoming Deadlines and Projects

An update on the projects I’m working on at the moment…

Animas Perdidas is this amazing documentary I’m writing music for, written by a friend of mine, Monika Navarro.  (The song “Grand and Sand” in the SoundCloud player is a sketch I’ve put together for the film.)  Anyway, this film is starting to really come together.  I’ve been fortunate enough to see it many steps of the way, and I have to congratulate Monika and everyone working with her on a job well done.  It looks like in the next few months I’ll be finishing the final recordings of the music and putting it all together.

I was fortunate to be selected as one of the Composers awarded commissions in Carnegie Hall’s Professional Training workshops.  In October I’m headed to Bard College to workshop some music with an ensemble of instruments and two of my favorite singers ever.  Unfortunately I have absolutely no idea what the piece will be about, so wish me luck on that deadline.  We will be heading to Carnegie Hall in May to perform the final versions.  All of you NYC folk, I hope you can come check this out…

Also, I am totally psyched to be writing a piece for WNYC’s opening of their performance space.  I’ll be writing the piece collaboratively with accordiopimp Michael Ward-Bergemann and geniusman Osvaldo Golijov.  I just took delivery of 8 or so CD’s full of 1930’s and 1940’s Radio Broadcasts that I’ll be using as source material in the piece.  This piece will be performed January 14th at the new space located at 160 Varick Street in Manhattan.

After that, I’m performing as a laptopper on some new pieces on the LA Philharmonic’s Green Umbrella series, headed to Europe with Klezmer Madness and working on my Chicago commission that I mentioned in a previous post.  There’s also a European tour of Ayre in the works.  So. Much. Music.
