Performing with Next Ensemble, Morris Rosenzweig’s 2005 and Counting: Katrina

Next Ensemble at ALLEGED, Ogden, Utah, January 28, 2017

Tonight I’m performing Morris Rosenzweig’s 2005 and Counting: Katrina for solo clarinet and electronics with the Next Ensemble at Alleged in Ogden, UT. The piece includes the voices and stories of the victims of Hurricane Katrina, victims natural disaster, the gov, themselves. Protest music, critical music. Also a new percussion & electronics piece by Devin Maxwell, Cloudseeding 5, which is about lying about the weather, the fifth installment.
