Bewitched by turning leaves, Summer’s sunburnt cheeks lose their treasure to invigorating slices of chill wind. There is much to do before Winter. Much to move in this season of transition. Move with me?
On Tuesday, November 18th I’m making a return to the annual Philly Sings Philly event at The Fire. Not sure which Philadelphians I’ll be covering this year, but with such a wealth from which to choose, how can we lose?
A few days later on Saturday, November 22nd I’ll perform a set of new original songs I’ve been working on at Ardmore Music Hall with Hezekiah Jones & Mutlu. I’m opening the night, so get there by 8 sharp.
Friday, December 5th at Studio 34 in West Philly I’ll be performing my computer-based soundscapes as my friend Angie Norris leads a special fundraising yoga class. The proceeds from this class will benefit the world’s first elephant hospital! For examples of the type of music I’ll be performing, check out my Raise The Dead Language Volume 1 (more on Volume 2 in a second!).
In the “Home For The Holidays” category, Thursday, December 18th marks a return to my beloved West Chester, PA for an evening of oldies, newbies and holiday classics at the borough’s newest club, Sprout Music Collective. It’ll be a 3 set evening, so I’ll likely be dipping way back into the repertoire on this one. Gonna be a good time, for sure. Maybe some special guests?
Finally, Raise The Dead Language Volume 2 will see the light of day on the longest night of the year, Sunday, December 21 (The Winter Solstice!). This collection of soundscapes and audio collages will feature some source material from compositions I wrote for the Clark Park production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest last year alongside other meditative drones and aural explorations. My good buddy and percussion master Tom Bendel sprinkled some of his special spice over a few of these tracks, as well. Super psyched for you to hear this.
