Cynthia Hiebert and Julia Baumgartel play "Awkward Waltz" in Kitchener, Ontario on January 12th

Cynthia Hiebert and Julia Baumgartel play “Awkward Waltz” in Kitchener, Ontario on January 12th

When Cynthia Hiebert, the talented, sparky, Canadian harpsichordist emailed me a few months ago to ask if I had a piece for baroque violin and harpsichord, I almost drooled on my laptop.  Harpsichord and baroque violin are two of my all time favorite instruments!  They’re so sweet and tangy, nostalgic but also very modern sounding,...

In Stockholm for the SMC/SMAC Conference!

I’m here with Jascha Narveson in Stockholm, walking the adorable and/or design-y streets and seeing an amazing, giant, centuries-old ship.  I’m also eating REALLY GOOD HERRING SANDWICHES, thanks to the always reliable recs of Mr. Cameron Britt.

TILT premieres my piece Big Breath on June 27th

TILT premieres my piece Big Breath on June 27th

I’m was really happy when the amazing Chris McIntyre called me to write this piece to commemorate the 10th anniversary of all things TILT.  I love brass and I’ve been a big TILT fan for ages.  What I ended up making for them is a very theatrical piece called “Big Breath.”  It uses the fabulous...
