What's ahead for 2011

On Monday January 10th, the Kickstarter Campaign to fund the release of Aqua Madoraa closes. This nearly fifty minute piano solo is one of my favorite works, and I'm really looking forward to finally making the recording available.

Then, also next week, tickets for the 2011 Avant Music Festival will go on sale. In addition to curating the festival with Megan Schubert, this year will see the premiere of a new version of my major work, Apparitions of The Four Pillars, the recent London performance of a section of which was described by Liminal's Scott McMillan as "a moment of relative calm, of stillness, and of pleasingly soporific and mind-emptying purity."

The full title for this new version is Apparitions of The Four Pillars with Their Lowest Additive Primes as limited to the 3rd, 7th, 9th, and 11th New Primes chosen Cyclically, The Toll of Premonition, The Memorial Connector over the Outlying Primal Abyss, and The Mid-Winter Ending - I'm being joined in the performances by Will Lang, Drew Blumberg, Catherine McCurry, and Mariel Roberts.

Here's to a happy and creative 2011
