Performance Updates

Not much performing as of late. Been learning a ton of new music with Dr. Caterwauls, with the Wesleyan ensemble AND recently with Anthony Braxton's large ensemble, as well as for other miscellaneous performances. My brain is buzzing a lot as of late.

First and most prominent update - a date change. The Matlock/Rhodes/Slattery set with Emerging Voices Project has been moved to Friday, November 30th at Neverending Books. The start time is now 8PM. I'm very excited to have these folks in New Haven and it should be a fun evening.

Secondly, a new, last minute performance. I'll be performing primarily on accordion with Anthony Braxton's large ensemble (Compositions 100, 102, 147 and 169 among them, if you're wondering). The performance is at Crowell Concert Hall in Wesleyan's Center For the Arts in Middletown, at 8PM. The ensemble is quite varied this year and includes various woodwinds (including bassoon, bass clarinet and contralto clarinet to round out the low end), piano and mallet percussion, one student playing a very warbly but marvelous Yamaha electric keyboard, viola, trumpet, a vocalist and some others I'm forgetting too. It's been really wonderful to work on this stuff with this group over the last few weeks, and the concert should be a blast.

Finally, on December 15th, the quartet that has existed in theory for several months will cross over into the performing world. A quartet of Benjamin J.M. Klein, Anne Rhodes, Maura Valenti and myself will perform a set of improvisations and compositions alongside solo sets by Nick Millevoi and Keir Neuringer. The performance is part of the Uncertainty Series and is happening at The Big Room on December 15th at 8PM.

Finally, I'm very pleased to announce that Dr. Caterwaul's is opening for The Cankickers, who are back for a tour throughout the winter of 2013. We're joining them at Cafe Nine on January 2nd, with doors at 7PM. More details as they come.
