Summertime

Here is a nice review of the recording of Zoophilic Follies by Times Quotidian columnist Alan Berman.

“That he is comfortable drawing from the whole world of music is no surprise given his musical pursuits, nor that the results are entertaining, beautiful, and interesting.”

You can still stream the entire album online or purchase it for only $5 on Bandcamp:


A few things coming up this summer, including an awesome show this Sunday with Timur and the Dime Museum, Dorian Wood, and Maesa! Almost the whole cast of Zoophilic Follies reunited for an indelible evening of incorrigible music!

In late July, I’ll be conducting Pauline OliverosTo Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe in Recognition of Their Desperation… at REDCAT’s 2012 New Original Works Festival. Masterminded by Opera Povera impressario Sean Griffin, this will be an amazing performance!

Besides that, this summer is for regrouping and rebuilding after a long stretch of hard work… hoping to get outside and see some sunsets/sunrises, and write some music with this Dali quote in mind: “Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.”
