Plans for 2014

I have several performances in the works for 2014!  Starting with a January premiere of Premises for soprano and percussion at the Avant GaRawge.  This work has a really brainy extramusical element to it:  every movement is a musical manifestation of a logical fallacy.  This was seriously entertaining for me to write, because I found a lot of similarities in how we argue and musical rhetoric.

Also in the works is a performance of a few movements of my dissertation piece that never made it onto a concert stage and more extended voice works and performances.  My extended voice new year’s resolution is to learn to beat box, I’m going to try to make some avant-garde   pop-a-cappella fusion electronic pieces.    Hooray!
