Two shows and one recording session in Los Angeles next week! Composer/violist/violinist/friend Lauren Baba is recording some of her large ensemble music and throwing a show at the Blue Whale and has invited me down to be a part of it all. Super grateful and excited to play with everyone! Another amazing occurrence will be the release concert for the Matty Harris Double Septet album. Cacophony and revery. Drones and grooves. TWO septets, at the SAME time. check it. Also, July just happened and I recorded(ish) a piece of music everyday and posted it to this website.
