I’m afraid that I’ve fallen behind with my artistic ruminations, updates, and posts. Just a quick note to say that I will soon post some recent works, including a large ensemble work performed here in Berkeley in April as well as some earlier documentation of collaborations that took place with the Performance Studies Dept. here in Berkeley.
This coming fall there are a few collaborations in the works with artists and a choreographer. I’m teaching one last course at UCBerkeley (before dissertation is filed!). I have been selected along with composer Mark Ackerley and Joe Lin as the ‘Under Construction’ Composers in Residence with the Berkeley Symphony. This project, beyond everything else, is how I will be spending my time and energy.
I hope soon to write about yet another fantastic performance by a Russian theatre troupe at the SF international Arts Festival . Their name is Derevo. I’m told they are very influential for AKHE Group (who I saw and wrote about last year). It was extremely encouraging, not least because of the music. More on that soon hopefully. Heres the best link for their work I can find, titled Harlekin.
