Here’s a great photo (by Michelle Tarailo) of Noiseborder Ensemble performing outdoors at the W.A.V.E.S. Festival on the Windsor waterfront. We premiered Brent Lee’s Signs & Symptoms (video: Sigi Torinus). We also performed the classic NBE pieces “Superstars of Wrestling” and “Lonesome.” Martin Schiller’s Pitch-A-Sketch also made a strong showing!
I’m looking forward to finally seeing the finished film. Me and friends from the Detroit Symphony, New Music Detroit, and the University of Michigan School of Music appear in Part 2 of the film.
This link contains a video clip of Keith Aleo playing Summons with The Ohio State Percussion Ensemble. This performance is from a 2010 festival at OSU. Keith and ensemble sound really great.
Program from the film River of Fundament by Matthew Barney and Jonathan Bepler.
Myself and my University of Michigan and Detroit Symphony percussion colleagues appear in the credits as the Percussion Ensemble in Part II: KHU.
Not to mention the fact that Keith’s site is just plain cool all around!
I pleased to announce that as of July 1, 2014 I will receive tenure at the University of Windsor and will be promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in the School of Creative Arts – Music.
It’s been a long road with many successes and challenges along the way. Thanks to all of you who have sent well wishes!
Lots activities in the last month. I greatly enjoyed the two recent Windsor Symphony cycles: our concert performance of Bizet’s Carmen and the recent pops concert featuring our assistant concert master Tino Popovic.
Noiseborder Ensemble is gearing up for a residency with the Sandeep Bhagwati from Concordia University’s Matralab. We’ll share a performance on April 1 at the University of Windsor.
I was pleased to have a masterclass and recital at the University with Philip O’Banion from Temple University on March 5. His new program is really enjoyable with some innovative technological interactions. I look forward to setting up my appearance at Temple in fall 2014.
More to come!
