This is the first in a series of piano/guitar duets that I recorded with Eleonor Sandresky. The piece was originally composed for a documentary film based on the Electromagnetic Spectrum called “Radiate” and was performed by a small chamber orchestra. I like the sound of the piano and guitar together. It’s a little tricky.
Thanks Nan Goldin for the powerful photographs and to Aperture for putting on the event. And thank you Laurie Anderson, Martha Wainwright, The Bush Tetras, and Samuel Rohrer for helping with the soundtrack. It was a one night stand. Fader published this interview.
I’m looking forward to working with Laurie Anderson, Martha Wainwright, Samuel Rohrer, and the Bush Tetras at the Aperture Benefit on October 26 at Terminal 5. We’ll be providing a live soundtrack to Nan Goldin’s “Ballad Of Sexual Dependency.”
It was great fun being part of the Ten10 Gallery Musicians Series and the LIC Arts Open. Photo by Jesse Winter.
I’m looking forward to performing with J. Walter Hawkes (trombone & electronics) on Saturday, May 16, 7:00, at the Edison Price Gallery in Long Island City. We’ll be part of the LIC Arts Open, now in its 5th year of celebrating the arts in Long Island City and will be combining music and light with neon artist Kenny Greenberg (http://www.neonshop.com.) The Edison Price light factory is the perfect place to do it. 41-50 22nd St., Long Island City, NY 11101. Walter and I both have a long history of composing music for film and t.v., particularly cartoons. You can check out Walter’s handiwork in the PBS show “Peg + Cat.” When we play these LIC shows we get to combine our musical sensibilities with a love for eccentric electronics.
Season 7 of Nurse Jackie will be on the air April 12 on Showtime. Hold on, it’s a bumpy ride. I’ll post some of the score soon.
I’m looking forward to performing with Phillip Johnston and Ed Tomney on Saturday, March 7 at 10:00 pm at the Stone on the Lower East Side. We’ll be without a net. The concert is part of Phillip’s residency celebrating a glorious history of making music in New York City. The Microscopic Sax Quartet will be on at 8:00. I’m thrilled to be a part of this.
We’ve just completed mixing the final episode of Nurse Jackie. It’s been a wonderful run with a great crew. Edie Falco is fantastic. Season 7 starts on April 12 at 9:00 on Showtime.
