Upcoming! ELMS 2017 in Boston August 6!

I’ll be curating and performing a concert inspired by Luigi Nono’s Utopica Futura – in my mind experimental music that explores the recurring future by using sounds from the past.  ELMS (Experimental Listening and Music) will feature presentations and music by Nomi Epstein (composer/piano), Jennie Gottschalk (composer), Ian Power (composer), Colin Tucker (composer/cello), D Edward Davis (composer), Erik Carlson (composer/violin) and Katie Porter (clarinet).
