I’m headed to Austin, Texas this weekend to attend the Golden Hornet Project String Quartet Smackdown II. I won the first one with this piece (below) in 2012 (performed here by the ChamberLab String Quartet in 2014). Will there be a repeat?
This is a short video I prepared when I had the very great honor of being nominated for the Buffalo Exchange Arts Award (which I then had the even greater honor of accepting). Having put it together, I realized it’s a nice summary of my musical life in Tucson since moving here in 2007. This includes live clips by Tim O’Grady, Hairless Cactus, AZPM, Krishna Bright, and Mystery Dave, with new footage shot by Shelly Black.
