A Busy Week!
It's been a wonderfully productive summer, and I just want to remind the world about the exciting things I've got going on this week. I am especially excited about Dislike, which will be at REDCAT's NOW Festival August 8-10! Dislike, which is based on the most disliked video on Youtube, is a 21st century operatic testament to the breadth of emotions swirling around the Internet. However, there are also several other events this week that I'd like to tell you about.
Tonight will be the outdoor premiere of LA Canon, a piece of mine for many suspended cymbals! This will take place at Moon Canyon Park in Mt. Washington at 7pm. I am excited to be part of this concert curated by Archie Carey.
Next is Dislike, which will be at REDCAT as part of the 2013 NOW Festival from Thursday through Saturday! Dislike exposes the dark side of online anonymity and open-forum communication by deconstructing 24-hours worth of comments on the most "disliked" video on YouTube. Members of experimental choir People’s Microphony Camerata will speak and sing a text taken from comments left on the video’s YouTube page while experimental accordion orchestra Free Reed Conspiracy will create a post-ambient soundscape with 8 accordions.
Then on Sunday, I will be part of a panel for James Klopfleisch's Society of Experimental Musicians. This will take place at 1pm at Artshare!
That's all for now. I hope to see you at REDCAT, and possibly at one of these other exciting (and free) events!
