So it seems Massachusetts has more in store for me as I will be spending 3 weeks, starting mid July, making music and attending classes at Mass MOCA as part of the Bang on a Can Summer Festival! I am incredibly grateful for being selected and I'm ready to jam out and party down.
But before then we will have the next installment of Friendly Music here at the Fox Hole. 4 local composers will be featured and this time I'm sharing the wealth and not performing on every single piece!
We will be featuring a good amount of bass with 3 works by Meredith Gilna, 2 for solo bass and the return of Fight/Flight. If you were around last year you heard Fight/Flight by a quartet of untrained voices, but now you get to hear the instrumental interpretation.
I am continuing my quest of works for saxophone and strings with a return to the program of Matt Primm's music, Obsessions 2 which we have been toting around a bit this year and can be heard on his website. And we're work shopping a fabulous new quintet by Jesse Alexander Brown.
And lastly, but certainly not least, a work for indeterminate ensemble and 3 narrators by my neighbor James Nicholson.
Care to follow my ramblings?
