The Fourth Avant Music Festival


February 8th, 2013


It's that time again, and we're gearing up for the 2013 Avant Music Festival which begins next week. Tickets are on sale now through Avant Media. There is also a great preview video on the site with interviews with the featured composers.

I'm extremely proud to be presenting a new work Apparitions Of The Four Pillars In The Midwinter Starfield Under The Astral 789 Duet performed by Jen Baker, Drew Blumberg, Mariel Roberts, Will Lang and Myself. The performances will take place on Friday, February 15th and Saturday, February 23rd. This is a major new evolution of this work and it is coming together beautifully in a rich harmonic and powerful drone. I hope you'll join me.

On Saturday, February 16th, we'll again be celebrating John Cage, this time with an afternoon performance of Apartment House 1776 with some absolutely wonderful singers, and the largest instrumental ensemble we've ever put together. It should be pretty amazing.

The full lineup of the festival, including concerts from Kitty Brazelton and Nick Hallett is here. And don't miss the free roundtable discussion between all of us, and hosted by the wonderful Olivia Giovetti, at 5 on the 16th.

I hope to see you all for this fourth annual festival.
