I’m not performing but I did curate this night of electroacoustic improvisations. Musicians from the East and West Coasts (Vancouver to Baltimore to Philadelphia to New York City) converge for three sets of subtle, textured, and sophisticated musics. The primary mode of the evening is the exploration of the various sonorous and intimate excitations in electronic and acoustic instruments. Be prepared to you have your ears opened.
