Dark Days – CVS

Hello Friends!

CVS, my concerto grosso for loadbang and string orchestra has been released on New Focus Recordings.

The recording of CVS features an all-star cast of NYC new music heavy hitters. The music was recorded at Oktaven audio.

Manuscript of the first draft of CVS.

On April 23, 2021 my third album, Dark Days was released on New Focus Recordings. The album is milestone in my collaboration with pianist and beloved friend, Karl Larson.

Karl also performed the complete album of Dark Days at the Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival at MassMoca in North Adams Massachusetts.

July 21, 2021 – After the concert with Michael Gordon, Julia Wolfe, Karl Larson, Scott Wollschleger, and David Lang.

Dark Days has generated lots of good press including Best of Bandcamp and a mention from Alex Ross. A recent profile in The Road To Sound documents our collaboration and dives into the ideas behind Dark Days. The album release show took place May 6 at Roulette. It was my first concert with a live audience in over a year! Here’s the live-stream from that night.

I’ve recently published some new works; Outside Only Sound for socially distanced string orchestra and percussion, the title track of the album, Dark Days, and solo piano works, Lyric Fragment and Tiny Oblivion.

Lost Anthems for viola and piano has also been published. The UK premiere was given at The Turner Contemporary as part of Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti’s The 20/19 Project. It was presented in the UK by Studio Will Dutta in 2019. The video is beautiful. Check it out!
