On May 14th, 2022, Cascadia Composers put on a big Spring Concert: “Collaborations 2022:Re Emergence“. The closer of the concert was the premiere of my piece “Homage to bell hooks” for baritone voice, violin, piano and Krump dancer. Please check out the whole concert. My piece begins at 1:54.
The wonderful Greek pianist Panos Demopoulos performing my Three Bird Intermezzi. Enjoy the flights of the geese, heron and hawk in his hands!
Cascadia Composers first live concert since the start of the pandemic, Crossing Paths took place at the Leach Botanical Gardens in fall 2021 and was a lovely event in a beautiful outdoor setting. My short piece “Danza Domestica” for violin and clarinet begins at 57:09 minutes.
As part of the New Music Gathering 2021, Leslee Smucker created a collaborative score for this old silent short film about Minnesota. I was thrilled to lend a hand(and melodica, piano and percussion) to the sonic backdrop.
