Wow. The Mizzou New Music Summer Festival was an intense experience. The performance of Rails by Alarm Will Sound on Saturday night was truly the best performance I have ever had. Hopefully, I will be able to post some audio in a few weeks.

I have been blogging about the festival at NewMusicBox.org, where I have written a series of four posts about the festival.

Additionally, the press for this festival was amazing. I had three interviews for three separate newspapers:

Now, I’m just trying to catch my breath a bit before leaving for ICMC at Huddersfield, England next Tuesday…

MIZZOU new music festival is approaching fast!

It’s only five days until I leave for the MIZZOU New Music Summer Festival.

Alarm Will Sound recently interviewed me and the other resident composers (David Biedenbender, Pat Clark, Michael-Thomas Foumai, Yotam Haber, Clint Needham, Steven Snowden, and Liza White) by e-mail.

Follow the link below and scroll down a bit for the interview questions which give some insight into how we all thought about our works and prepared for the festival.
