The Super Short Avant-Garde Marimba Solo Series
In February 2019, I had a call-for-scores on Facebook for a solo marimba series. It was for anyone, regardless of experience, to submit any type of short composition (graphic score, video, western notation, etc.), as long as they put little to no effort into creating the score. Submissions included alphabet fridge magnets, a picture of a pet cat, and instructions for a puppet performance, amongst others. At least one was technically tricky, and some required me to speak or sing. You can view all 23 short videos of me performing these pieces here on my YouTube channel!
This is an avant-noise rock-ish duo with guitarist/skronk-artist, Greg McMullen. It combines noisy, crunching chords, dissonant ambience, driving rhythms, rock, and Balinese-gamelan inspired motifs, with improvisation. We’re currently working on recording an album, to be completed at the end of 2019.
