February means it's once again time for the Avant Music Festival, and my largest and most comprehensive work Apparitions of The Four Pillars in The Midwinter Starfield under The Astral 789 Duet. This year I'm honored to be joined in this three-and-a-half-hour performance by Jen Baker on trombone and voice and Meaghan Burke and Mariel Roberts on cellos. It's a thrill to delve back into this world with these amazing performers, all of whom have played some version of this music before. Our rehearsals have been clear and focused, and we are arriving at a truly high level of development of this tuning and its possibilities.

Please join me on Saturday March 7th for the premiere of what will be my longest and most detailed work to date presented in a new immersive visual environment by my longtime collaborators Oscar H Scott and Kryssy Wright. Tickets are on sale now.

I've also been recently doing a bit of uploading to Soundcloud including a 25 minute excerpt of my latest solo piano piece written for, and performed by, R. Andrew Lee late last year in Colorado, which we'll perform again this April in Seattle.
