After an incredible spring and summer of touring all around the east coast, middle Atlantic and southern states, it feels good to stop moving and great to be back out west. Specifically Joshua Tree, CA, where I shall be the entire month of September at the home and soon-to-be recording studio of Mr Scott Rosenberg (Pink Mountain).
The magic desert light and utter silence is altogether awesome and energizing. And when the wind picks up and comes through the trees, it’s like a million conversations. The range of people you meet out here and the eccentric characters keep things socially interesting. And don’t get me going about the stars. Much inspiration comes from all this.
I’ll be working on a goodly number projects in need of attention and completion, including new music for the next volume of Music for Driving and Film, scores for an upcoming microdecibel recording, audio edits from this summer’s Roaming Residency collaborations, an upcoming solo improv release and a long overdue finalized full score and audio demo for Piece to Celebrate the Proximity of Pearl Harbor Day and the Death of John Lennon (in order to hopefully present this piece on a grand scale at some point in the not to distant future). And if things work out schedule wise, my LA colleague Emily Hay and I may even get a gig together up here, we shall see.
I will be play a string of shows in the SF Bay Area, Sacramento and Reno the first week of October, featuring some Music for Driving and Film and a set at the NorCal Noise fest, before I head back to NYC to host another Avant! Guitar! Night! and play a few select shows tba. Onward.
