2 new works completed at the Millay Colony

Just finished two more works here at the Millay Colony (which I brought with me in progress) – one for the Chicago based Fonema Consort (mezzo-soprano, flute, percussion, and electronics) that will be premiering the work at the visiones sonoras festival in Morelia, Mexico in October and the second an electronic work for my colleague and friend video artist Jacek Kolasinski for a video work being premiered at his opening at the Frost Museum in Miami next month…Now I am busy working/re-working my interdisciplinary video opera parallel universes – spending a good bit of time thinking about which way to go – this is a great place to do that – quite beautiful – am here until next week so am taking advantage of every minute…

On my way to the Millay Colony

Traveling from Miami to Austerlitz, NY and the Millay Colony. Flew to La Guardia and from there on a train to Hudson, NY. Lastly a 30 minute cab drive gets me to the Colony. Will be working on several works with electronics including the new piece for the Fonema Consort, a work for electronics and video in collaboration with Jacek Kolasinski, as well as continued work on my next interdisciplinary video opera parallel universes.

Civitella and Assisi, Italy

July 17

Arrived at the Civitella Ranieri castle near Perugia, Italy yesterday afternoon and spent last night and spending tonight here. Have great memories from last summer’s residency – was extremely productive and I made some great friends. Had the pleasure of meeting many of the current group and enjoyed meeting them as well. After tonight I am in the hands of the Suono Sacro music festival in Assisi where I conducted the premiere of my new work Ascension tonight at the Sala San Gregorio. Was a very nice evening with an enthusiastic crowd and wonderful performers. Has been a great month in Italy…
