Birthday update

Here’s more good news:

  • After 6 months of breast cancer analysis and treatment, I am cancer free!
  • 4Culture has awarded me a grant to compose and present music for a gifted 15-person chamber ensemble called Ancient Future!  The premiere will occur in November, 2017 at the Chapel Performance Space in Seattle.  The evening will be entitled ‘Truth Is Up For Grabs’; the pieces are inspired by contemporary events.
  • A crew of 25 people under the direction of Wilson Milam premiered the first act of The Nikola Tesla Projekt: The Light at On The Boards’ Northwest New Works festival last weekend.  Composed and written by Kultur Shock singer Srdjan ‘Gino’ Jevdjevic, it went splendidly.  Performers included members of Kultur Shock, Dunava (Balkan women’s choir), a brass band, Zeus, Prometheus, and the Tesla family, not to mention the village women, and the first sighting of Thomas Edison… We’ll keep you posted as we continue work on this beautiful piece!
  • Recently spent the day at Robert Lang’s beautiful studio, improvising with an international group of musicians organized by Steve Ball.  A gigantic pleasure!
