Hello world, here’s an update.
After an emotionally turbulent yet ultimately successful crowdfunding campaign, and a packed seven-week trip to Australia and New Zealand; my album is recorded. Not yet edited or mixed or mastered or promoted, but at least recorded.
In the meantime, there is an album already out with a piece of mine on it.
The Jade String Quartet is made up of players from the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. Their debut release is called Parlour Games. It’s entirely New Zealand works that they have premièred over the past few years, including my 2015 piece Fragments of Noir – written while inspired by Chicago, just as I was new to Chicago.
More info about the recording and how to acquire it at Rattle Records. There are also pieces by David Hamilton, Peter Adams, Kenneth Young, Peter Scholes, Leonie Holmes, Karlo Margetić, and John Elmsly – folks who’ve been my colleagues, my teachers, and my co-performers.
As for my own album… I wanna say February or March 2018 for a release. Stay tuned.
