So Cold…

The New Year’s here and I’m wrecked from shoveling snow. So, I’m updating the website.

Awesome and thoughtful review of Documents by Michael Durek in the Brooklyn Rail, in which he listens to the album 10 times.

That album also made some great best of 2014 lists (Magnet, Village Voice, Big City Blog)

Colonic Youth also received this amazing review in All About Jazz

Just built a bunch of new circuits. They do not work yet.

But hopefully they will by Feb 9th when I open up for Dither and Hypercolor at JACK on Feb 9.

I’m with Dither again and percussion quartet Mantra on 2/27. We’re all performing Paula Mathussen’s new piece at the Wild Project.

Chris and I are dropping Paroxysm on March 1 and will be doing a tour of the eastern US in May before I take off for some European dates…all info coming up.

December/End of the Year Roundup

2014 has been great. Recently finished up a run of Ralph Lemon’s Scaffold Room up at Bard with this nice NYTimes review

Chris Pitsiokos and I are releasing our debut album Paroxysm on Carrier in 2015, so keep an eye out. We’re shooting for March 1.

I also just got commissioned to compose the music and do the sound design for Urban Bush Women‘s new Coltrane based project. NYC premiere at the BAM Harvey in Dec 2015.
