Big October

I’M BACK AT THE SUN TUNNELS!   I finally have a little bit of a video to share! Check it out:  https://youtu.be/EIlJNQBobPk​

Oct 5 1-4PM Solo Clarinet at the UMFA Sun Tunnels Meet-Up in Lucin, Utah
This Saturday I’ll be out at Nancy Holt’s Sun Tunnels, jumping from tunnel to tunnel, playing Scelsi, Stockhausen, Jennie Gottschalk and a little John Cage, most likely.  And Jennie will be there!  The first of many road trips for the two of us, I hope!  It’s a UMFA sponsored meet-up at the land artwork day, a good excuse to drive 4 hours into the desert and listen to clarinet works about the sun and the stars and infinity.  Come out!!!! https://umfa.utah.edu/node/441

Oct 15 8PM Pop-up Concert with Will Lang, trombone and Red Desert
Art Program, Converse 311, Westminster College
NYC avant-garde trombonist, Will Lang, is bringing a solo set for trombone and electronics, and Red Desert is opening with a new piece by Devin Maxwell for bass clarinet, trombone and electronics!  Join us!!! FREE!!!  https://www.facebook.com/events/1301235686723322/​

Oct 20 2PM Katie Porter: a snippet of my experimental clarinet at the Sun Tunnels installation, a 4 channel audio/video and live performance. 12 Minutes Max Series at the Salt Lake Public Library.
I am _finally_ presenting the Sun Tunnels in a concert environment, just 12 minutes of it (because that’s the theme of the series!).  This project is still very much in progress.  I will be performing alongside the film from my sessions out there last summer, just one movement of Within 6 by Michael Pisaro, during the most beautiful epic sunset as seen through the tunnels.  https://events.slcpl.org/event/3124103

Oct 28 7:30PM Red Desert on the Chamber Music Series, Vieve Gore Concert Hall, Jewett Center for the Performing Arts, Westminster College
This is a _for real_ experimental music concert, one that NEVER happens in Utah, and I really hope, if you’re local, you’ll put it on your calendar, come bask in the sounds with us, and join us for a beer afterwards.  We are starting off our Red Desert Artist Residency at Westminster College in a spectacular fashion, and really, truly, please come!!!
