Cosmic Crossings Show-Trenton NJ April 14

Here’s an event I’m playing this Saturday in Trenton NJ. I’ll be using my Aleph and a few other pedals to process the sounds from an instrument which is very new to me, the Chapman Stick. My partner will be doing visuals combining Resolume and Vuo. The other group that is playing is called the Tangent Project. I have played before with the guitarist in that group, Harrison McKay. His explorative guitar music is very enjoyable. Here is a link to the site with the info:

The piece I’m playing is one of the first ‘compositions’ I’ve done in a while. The end of the piece is a short etude I’ve written with a working title of ‘harp piece’. All of the previous sections are expansions and combinations of small bits of the ‘harp piece’.
