Cellist Stephen Marotto gave the Massachusetts premiere of Islands, concerto for cello and electronics at the Mystic Brewery, Chelsea. The concert was presented by Original Gravity, an organisation that pairs contemporary music with uniquely crafted beers. www.originalgravitymusic.org
I was privileged to run the live sound for a host of local composers including Dan Tramte, Dan Van Hassel and Scott Barton with his robotic orchestra!
A snippet from the Chelsea Record, who reported on the event:
I was thrilled to join Transient Canvas as they performed Branches at the New York City Electronic Music Festival this year! Fantastic venue - the Abrons Playhouse - with superb 8-channel donated by Genelec.
In November 2014 I spent two glorious weeks at the Banff Centre in Alberta, Calgary as part of the Source and Inspiration programme. Whilst there, I collaborated with singer-songwriters Abby Swidler and Jodi Doidge to arrange their songs for classical ensembles.
