Cluster! Progress!

Well, HELLO there!

I am so excited to announce that I will be performing at Cluster New Music and Integrated Arts Festival! I’ll be around for several of the festival events; most markedly will be a split program of solo works with the incomparable Lori Freedman on clarinet. She will present pieces by composers Ferneyhough, Barrett and Cendo as well as a work of her own creation.

The concert will be on Friday, March 15th at 8pm at the Urban Shaman Gallery, 203 – 209 McDermot Ave in Winnipeg. I will be premiering two works from this project at the concert! Cautionary Tales #1 – In This World by Sally Norris, and Aquarelle délavée by Elyze Venne-Deshaies. I’ll also bringing The Blue Book (Mason Koenig) and a brand new Re-organization (Luke Nickel), this time modeled on a Bikini Kill song and an attempt to capture Kathleen Hanna’s delivery style and mannerisms. 

I will also have the great honour of finally presenting Andy Costello‘s Smiles from Miles, a piece that is very dear to my heart in content and construction, at the Manitoba New Music Conference on Sunday, March 10th. The conference runs from 12-5pm, and I’ll update here once I have an exact schedule.

In the works (business-wise): Halifax at the end of March! Details to follow!

In the works, music-wise: Choreography with Lilian Belknap on Cautionary Tales this afternoon. Learning a LOT of solo music, which can be quite lonely, but this whole thing was my idea so I probably shouldn’t complain!
