Bruce Hodges review of the Cage 102 show.
Frank Oteri and Molly Sheridan and I had a fun conversation together; you can watch and read it here.
Mr. Faiman also gave a lovely account of Eve Beglarian’s “Night Psalm” (2009), an appealing meditation in which velvety descending arpeggios morph into a quietly rumbling harmonic haze. Ms. Beglarian’s “I’m Worried Now, but I Won’t Be Worried Long” (2010), though composed only a year after “Night Psalm,” inhabits a different universe: electronic sound, a droning cello line and tactile, rhythmically solid harp writing form the backdrop for a soulful, almost folk-song-like soliloquy for the violin, played here with a rich, deep sonority by Miranda Cuckson.
Eve Beglarian uses more tactile, inventively morphing sounds in “Robin Redbreast” (2003), an odd but evocative setting of a Stanley Kunitz poem for tenor (Martin Bakari) and piccolo (Henrik Heide).
While searching for references to the seemingly obscure hymn tune Mear (don’t ask!), I found out that the often really interesting California-based journal 21st Century Music is now online! This may not be news to anyone but me, but I’m taking this opportunity to link to Michael Dellaira’s in-depth interview with me in the August 2002 issue.
this from The Villager: get your tickets right away if you want to go: it’s selling out fast!
I wrote music for trombones, frogs, and electronics to accompany David Neumann’s dance, FeedForward, which is sort of about sports, but the verbiage says the “contest of disciplines is danced through the mind and its tragic strategies.” Check it out!
I like this review of Dollhouse very much…
Nice review of the CD here.

The piece I wrote for Marya Martin’s Flutebook for the 21st Century will be played again by Marya at the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival on Sunday August 5th at 6:30 pm. She played it very beautifully at the premiere this spring, so it will be great to hear her do it again.
here’s a link to a demo where I am singing the flute part:
