Things are crazy hectic these days.
I’m working on nine new pieces that will premiere at my Senior Recital on May 15th in Lotte Lehman Concert Hall at UCSB, is that really a premiere though? While I’m very excited about all the music I’m writing, nine pieces is a lot to focus on at once, or at least a lot to focus on with an impending deadline, and I’m looking forward to getting them all finished so I can start work on my Double Quartet, which will be for String Quartet with Fender Rhodes, drums, double bass, and electric guitar.
The Polaris Quintet is doing well, still gigging about every week, and they will be performing four of the pieces in my recital as an ensemble and will be augmented by other musicians for the remaining pieces. We also intend to record those four pieces soon, so be on the look out for that.
In the meantime, here’s some Andriessen.
Take it easy.
