The Sound of Distance 4-day event takes over the HKW in Berlin this weekend!

This weekend from Thursday October 21 – Sunday October 24 an ambitious 4-day event titled The Sound of Distance, will activate the various spaces in and around the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) with an array of performances and installations. Curated by Jan St Werner and the HKW the event will feature two of my sound installations and two performances.

I am truly thrilled to bring two of Annea Lockwood‘s wonderful pieces to this event. Her gorgeous piece Dusk (2012) will be presented through loudspeakers outside of the HKW at dusk each day (17:55 – 18:05). I will also be presenting & performing in bayou-borne, for Pauline – a graphic score for six instrumentalists/voices based on a map of six bayou’s which converge near Houston Texas, where Pauline Oliveros grew up. Unfortunately Annea cannot be with us for the event but i am thrilled to be working with a wonderful ensemble created especially for this event which includes Oren Ambarchi, Sam Dunscombe, Werner Durand, Emilio Gordoa and Michiko Ogawa.

I will also perform alongside lovely artists David Grubbs and Andrea Belfi as part of a spatialized collaboration organized by David titled Three Simultaneous Soloists, .

My sound installations keeping the ball rolling, HKW, Berlin 2021 and filling a space with salt (for one listener) 2021 will be presented inside the venue from 4PM each day of the event.

So many other wonderful pieces and performances by Alvin Lucier, Diana Deutsch, Stephen O’Malley, Judith Hamann, Oren Ambarchi, Anthea Caddy and more will fill these days and I am really looking forward to it all!

Sonic Arts Union event in NY July 20 + 21

On July 20 + 21 there will be a special 2-day event at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, NY observing the legacy of late 60s-early 70s experimental music collective the Sonic Arts Union and its founding members: David Behrman, Alvin Lucier, Gordon Mumma, and the late Robert Ashley (1930-2014). Several important works by each composer will be performed with all of the living composers present at the events and in some cases performing in the works. The Friday evening’s program features later era works and premiere’s of new compositions (1993 – 2018), while the Saturday evening focuses on earlier works by the composers (1962 – 1969) as well as presentations of contemporary works from friends, colleagues, and invited guests who have been inspired by their approach.

I will perform twice on the Saturday night program, first in a performance of David Behrman‘s Runthrough (1967-68) alongside David Behrman & Cleek Schrey and then in a short performance with Oren Ambarchi referencing material from our 2017 LP Hotel Record.

It’s an absolute honour to be a part of this phenomenal event celebrating four composers whom i have long admired. Full program details and tickets are available through the Issue Project Room site here.
