On Thursday, Oct. 29 (1pm), I’ll be giving a lecture/recital/masterclass for the University of Toronto percussion studio. As a long time fan of U of T’s work in percussion from their faculty, students, and alums, it will be an honor to present there. Bev Johnston’s recordings on CMC were certainly an inspiration for this project!
I’m promoting and presenting pieces on my Points of Departure CD, released by Centrediscs this year. If you haven’t heard it take a listen!
The real hard goods from CMC!
During the 2015-2016 year, I will be giving a number of lecture recitals to share some of the repertoire from my Points of Departure CD.
In late September, I gave the recitals at Queens University and the University of Ottawa.
On October 29, I will give the lecture recital at the University of Toronto.
2016 appearances include University of Michigan, University of British Columbia, University of Oregon, Portland State University, Western Washington University and more to be confirmed.
I greatly enjoyed attending and presenting at the Transplanted Roots Percussion Research Symposium at McGill University in Montreal in September.
My talk, “Compressed Orchestrations and Dilated Spectral Conceptions: Francois Rose’s Points d’emergence” included an analysis and performance of the work and detailed the use of Spectral composition in unpitched compositions.
All of the concerts and presentations were greatly enjoyable and inspiring.
