Red Desert residency at Cornell University, Feb 2022. Feedback – feedback -feedback. We played new music by Maria Bulla, Miles Friday, Laura Cetilia, Han Xu, Josh Biggs and John Eagle. And I performed a little solo set of Giacinto Scelsi & Johanna Beyer. It was so great. Thanks Laura Cetilia and the Cornell composition department for inviting us!!!
It took Lucio and I over a year to write and record these pieces for bass clarinets and Eb contrabass clarinet. We worked slowly over the internet, became good friends, found our favorite sounds, talked about our lives and the instability of this time in this pandemic, and said, “see you next week”. On and on. Until we were finished. It’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever made. So excited to share, soon, on the amazing label Ftarri in Japan. And the artwork! Whales! Yes, whales
