January 17-18: Epístolas for string trio, performed by InConcerto + Sonus at the Bienal de Cuenca, Ecuador. Simón Gangotena and Rodrigo Becerra of InConcerto have really made Epístolas their own since 2017. It's immensely satisfying.
February 17: Touch for solo mezzo soprano, performed by Kayleigh Butcher at Constellation in Chicago.
June 14: Touch, performed by Kayleigh Butcher at the Connecticut Summerfest in Hartford. It's a really good performance!
June 15: improvised performance with Sóley Sigurjónsdóttir at the Studio Loos June Impro Meeting in The Hague. Sóley and I were experimenting with a very physical form of improvisation--I am provisionally calling these "sound and movement duos".
September 1: moise, a solo performance for voice and Arduino-operated, motor-driven percussion presented at Goldsmiths in London. This was a huge undertaking technically and theoretically as well as performance wise. I have so much to say about it; I'm still working on the best format in which to say it.
November 14: 60//40, sound and movement duo with Elise Knudson at Dåncēhølø in Brooklyn. They made a lovely recap video of the performance.
December 17: 60//40, sound and movement duo with Elise Knudson at at Dixon Place in New York.
60//40 grew out a little from my earlier experiments with Sóley, but it has quickly become it's own creature. Elise is primarily a dancer, so we are trying to push our voice and body in multiple directions. The first performance, at Dåncēhølø, was completely improvised. The Dixon Place show had a detailed structure while still leaving a lot of room for improvisation. Oddly enough, both performances lasted about seventeen minutes.
There will for sure be more 60//40 in 2020. Stay tuned!
