1) The recording session with Stuart and Sylvia Smith went off very well-- Stuart was able to give me some wonderful insight into his work in general and into Links No. 3 in particular, and we put the whole thing in the computer in about 2-1/2 hours. Stuart and Sylvia host an excellent three-day intensive program every summer for anyone who'd like to get a similar in-depth coaching from Stuart on his music (without the attendant pressures of a recording session)-- this year it runs June 2-4 in Baltimore. You may very well see me there.
2) My KSU colleague Joan Meggitt has a blog up for her Cleveland-based company, Antaeus Dance. You should go check it out-- both the blog and the company. Joan's work is excellent!
3) The new Gutbucket album was released last week or so, and it's really killer. You can order CDs or top-quality vinyl from their website. Check them out too!
4) My next performance is at the Akron Art Museum on February 8 at 2pm-- my first concert as a member of the Akros Percussion Collective. I'll be part of a quartet performing John Cage's Living Room Music, and I'll also be performing Stuart Smith's solo percussion/speech piece Family Portraits: Delbert. It's free, it's fun, and you're a very short drive away from Angel Falls Coffee Company for a beverage and snack afterwards. Couldn't think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon...
