New VIA Records Albums
This season is a big one! Many new works are in development. I am still working on the opening of Original Music Workshop, a new space and arts incubator that will open its doors Fall 2015! This season marks the culmination of my residency at the Watermill Center and at the Park Avenue Armory for my work, Aging Magician with the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Rinde Eckert and Julian Crouch, and we will have a final workshop presentation January 2015 at the Park Avenue Armory for three nights, as part of the Prototype Festival, and as part of Opera America’s New Works Forum. I am looking forward to releasing Oceanic Verses and the Labyrinth Installation Concertos on VisionIntoArt’s new label, VIA Records, and we will be having the Oceanic Verses release at the Dillon Gallery November 20th. I will also release Union for Sing for Hope’s Aids Quilt Album (a collaboration with Royce Vavrek and Isabel Leonard) and my work, Listen, Quiet for cellist Jeffrey Zeigler and percussionist Jason Treuting will be co-released by Innova and VIA Records on Jeffrey Zeigler’s debut solo CD. Other premieres include a new work with Hotel Elefant, the expansion of the Hubble Cantata with Nathan Gunn, and works in development: Gilgamesh with librettist Cerise Jacobs and director Michael Counts for Arts Emerson and Beth Morrison Projects, Epiphany with the Young People’s Chorus and director Michael McQuilken for a Fall 2015 NY premiere, and filmmaker Murat Eyuboglu’s The Colorado, a new documentary/live performance work for Roomful of Teeth, Glenn Kotche and Jeffrey Zeigler.
