The first group show of Burlington’s experimental music incubator Community of Sound (of which I am a proud founder) will feature music performances by myself, Lauren Costello, Adrienne Cooper Smith, Benjamin Mayock, Toussaint St Negritude, Jane Boxall, Monique Citro, Clyde Powers, and Adam Ploof & friends. The local arts paper gives a preview on it.
It will be a night of diverse sounds and we’re very excited to get the Community of Sound: Improvised, New, Experimental (CoS:INE) Series launched in our Pine Street Burlington location.
The piece I will be playing, with their I you your fuse, is a work for solo double bass that I commissioned from leading composer-performer Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti (followers of my work will be familiar with her from our work together in The Yes &). This work features a variety of extended techniques–one of her specialties–as well as vocalizations and some genuinely tricky rhythms. I’ll have a few copies of the score available at the show as well.
Come hear me nail this!
