Pale Fire (2015) Premiered on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Commissioned by the Piano Spheres Concert Series, my new piece for solo piano and electronics written specifically for pianist Vicki RayPale Fire (2015), is to be premiered next Tuesday at REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theatre)!  The recital consists of, in addition to Pale Fire (2015), solo piano works by Luciano Berio, Toru Takemitsu, John Luther Adams, a song cycle by Vicki Ray, and another commissioned piece by Dominique Schafer, Aufwind (2015), all of which were conceptualized around the idea of one or more of the four elements (earth, water, air, fire).

Please also join us for a workshop/panel discussion in preparation of the concert on Saturday, February 20th (13H00) at Boston Court Performing Arts Center in Pasadena, CA.  Vicki, Dominique, and I will be joined by guest moderator John Schneider (KPFK, Microfest) to talk about and present the two commissioned pieces in a relaxed, open atmosphere.
