Immersion Composition Society, June 2015

IMG_6868

I participate in the Immersion Composition Society when I’m home and available.

The ICS is comprised of ‘lodges’ all around the world who endeavor to compose twenty songs in the course of one day, and share results at the end of the day.

I composed 4 new pieces on Sunday, June 7, including the commissioned piece ‘Prostrate Before a Periwinkle’ for patron Kai Weber.

EZID for Lalish

The Cabiri‘s spettacolo EZID is premiering at Cornish Playhouse (former Intiman Theater) at Seattle Center 12-20 June.  Event Info

I’m honored to play bass, theremin, clarinet & sing with YESOD.
The acrobats/atheletes in The Cabiri are fearless flying around above.

EZID is created by Calibri founder John Murphy, who describes his 3 recent visits to the holy city of Lalish, Kurdistan.

EZID is inspired by Murphy’s time in Lalish.

We hope to stream our tribute to the people of Lalish, or even better to bring EZID there.

OU: SCRAMBLED! + Upcoming Concerts

Greetings!
I’ve laid a new egg in my cozy nest of Spoot Music, in collaboration with Public Eyesore Records!

SCRAMBLED! is the second recording by OU (‘egg’ in Sardinian dialect), my beloved and lively Sardinian/Italian world music sextet.  It comes out on Spoot Music on 30 May, 2015!

4PAN1T

 

This stunningly beautiful collection of new compositions by trumpetist/ukeleleist Ersilia Prosperi is sung in Italian, Sardinian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, English and Pygmy, and features a guest brass band and chorus on one of the pieces.  SCRAMBLED! blurs the boundaries between jazz, world music, irony, ferocity and tenderness.

Please join us at the CD Release Party at Solo Bar in Seattle on Saturday 30 May, 8-10pm.  You can hear the new tracks, watch videos, enjoy a slide show, and even join in on a SKYPE conversation with our friends in Rome!

Stream SCRAMBLED! on SoundCloud  / Download SCRAMBLED! from Bandcamp

CD Baby will soon be distributing the physical discs!

Meanwhile, I’m playing lots of music with Ama Trio; collaborating with YESOD to create a sound score for The Cabiri aerial/gymnast company; and I just started a new duo with drummer Tarik Abouzied.  And on the horizon: visionary choreographer Pat Graney has commissioned me once again, this time to compose the sound score for her new dance piece & installation Girl Gods, which premieres at On The Boards from 1-4 October.

Stay tuned for more!
