Here is the video of my performance of “Breeze” (an improvisatory rondo for prepared guitar) from the 21st Century Guitar Conference:
The virtual 21st Century Guitar conference will start tomorrow Mar 22. I’ll be part of the composers’ roundtable at 1 pm Eastern time, along with Tim Brady, Daniela Fantechi, Stephen Goss, Felipe Ribeiro, and Rita Torres. I also played in Blake deGraw’s Polympanic Entropy, which will be part of the 6pm EDT concert. My solo performance of “Breeze” will be premiered on the 26th.

Looks like I will have a new live video performance of “Breeze” included in this year’s virtual 21st Century Guitar Festival on Mar 26, at 17:00 UTC (I think that’s 12 noon Eastern time but not sure after the time changes). I will also participate in the composers’ roundtable on Mar 22.
In addition, I played a part for one of the large ensemble pieces on the first day.
I recorded an interpretation of Marilyn Browning’s artwork “Would You Open This Door?” for this fascinating project: https://fb.me/e/hPhY6fhKY.
It will be included in the video that premieres on Mar 19. Thanks to Vancouver New Music for inviting me!
I was honoured to play the original acoustic version of Shawn Bell’s “Currents II” as part of this video concert organized by my former teacher William Beauvais. It premiered on Feb 7. My performance appears at 19:30 but the whole video is of course great:
I just finished recording my video and audio for my part in what is going to be a virtual guitar orchestra for a new piece by a Seattle composer at the virtual version of the 21st Century Guitar Festival that will take place Mar 22-26: http://www.21cguitar.com. Definitely an interesting way to work and an interesting piece. Looking forward to seeing how it goes.
Thanks to Vancouver New Music for including “S(h)immer” on this playlist of solo guitar music:
A solo performance I recorded of material from Electric Currents will premiere on Youtube at 7:15 tonight at the link below, featuring picture-in-picture during pieces with pedal work. Mel Coughlin did a great job with lighting and cameras:
I was interviewed by Trevor Babb about Electric Currents and my background with the guitar for his Contemporary Guitar Blog last weekend. I was a bit nervous and fidgeted and stammered like someone who has been locked down for months but it was a good time:
