I just wanted to let people know about a show that opens this Saturday (June 5th, 2021) at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha. The show is called “All Together, Amongst Many: Reflections on Empathy” and has a really wonderful group of artists presenting work. I have a tape loop piece in it and will also be performing at the opening. I don’t know if there are any lines folk in Omaha at the moment but the show runs until September and the performance is supposed to stream over Twitch via the Bemis Account (3pm local time).
In addition to “All Together…” there is also an installation by Charlie Friedman called “Soundtracks from the Present Future” which includes 60 acoustic bass, guitars + mandolins that have servo plucked strings performing a selection of works. I was able to compose a piece for it and heard the installation running this morning. It felt like being inside a harpsichord.
Anyway, it’s my first time getting out as an artist or musician since before the start of the pandemic and I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed but hopeful. Thanks.
