Refractions

I’m very excited to announce that my new album Refractions will be released by Populist Records!

Refractions features performances by guitarist Jeremy Kerner, the Isaura String Quartet, and myself.

I hope you will join me on the evening of May 6 for an album release show at Automata!

Automata
504 Chung King Court

Ticket info coming soon!


Refractions is a 44 minute electro-acoustic chamber piece that expands on my 10 years of exploring the sonic and sculptural possibilities of music boxes. Composed for string quartet, electric guitar, and electronically processed music box, Refractions combines ethereal ambient electronics with contemplative acoustic timbres.

On May 6, Refractions will be performed live by guitarist Jeremy Kerner, the Koan Quartet, and myself.

I am also thrilled to have Rahman Baranghoori (vocals and violin) and Timothy Maloof (violin) perform a duo set of improvisations and songs based on Persian Mugam and Arabic Maqamat (modes).


The album features fantastic performances by guitarist Jeremy Kerner, the Isaura String Quartet, and myself.

The artwork is by Joyce Nojima, with graphic design by Jennifer Bewerse.

Refractions was recorded and mixed at Catasonic Studios, and mastered by Mulholland Music.
