I have been very quiet on here in recent months. Work and life in general ramped up in intensity, and it has become harder to keep up the blogging momentum, as I’m sure many of my fellow participants in blogging101 January 2015 would agree! I’ve also been very busy over at Making Waves, a new music listening project I’m co-curating with composer Lisa Cheney on the WordPress platform.
In the meantime, I’m delighted to share the news about the latest digital album release from Kammerklang. It’s called BETA, and is now available for streaming or purchase via Bandcamp. It features two of my compositions recorded live in 2014 at Kammerklang Ablaze: Phlogiston (2014) and Electro Fractal Gamelan (2011), along with works by composers Sam Gillespie, Lucy Kong, Cameron Lam, Sarah Myerson, Marcus Whale and Chris Williams.
Performances by Nexas Saxophone Quartet, and the Kammerklang Chamber Orchestra with solos by Kaylie Dunstan (pictured here in the album cover), Peter Anthony Smith, Jane Bishop and Rory Brown. Recorded by Jayson McBride for Kammerklang.
