More than a few concerts...

One thing that is certain in Tokyo - if you want to go to a concert any day, practically any time, you can. The rich assortment of musical styles, ensembles, and performance venues is quite extraordinary. I thought I'd kick off this category with a little summary of events I have enjoyed over the last few months.

Yaddo Artists Retreat

During the summer of 2013 I spent 4 weeks at the Yaddo Artist Retreat in Saratoga Springs, New York. What an extraordinary place. Located on the Trask Family estate, artists from around the world gather to spend time working on creative projects.

Interstitial Traces (2012)

Interstitial Traces for alto and baritone saxophone, computer soundscape, and animation is a collaboration between French animation artist Celia Eid and myself. It was created while we were living on different continents – she in France and myself in Japan.
