"RBF" now available from ALRY Publications

My flute quartet, "Remove Before Flight", has been performed five times that I know of since it was completed in 2005. Now, it's available for any flute quartet that feels like portraying an aviator's dreams in sound!

The new ALRY Publications catalog for 2007 has been released, and "Remove Before Flight" can be ordered therefrom. It comes with a score, parts for two C flutes, alto flute, and bass flute, performance notes, and fingerings for all the multiphonics.

On this day in history... egg hatched somewhere in San Francisco, revealing to the world one Murphy Soren, a Dusky Pionus parrot! I try not to think about what I would do without her.

It's her 15th birthday today, and in honor of this occasion I've commissioned a new piece from my friend Celeste Hutchins. You can commission a piece from her too. They are going for the very affordable price of 7 Euros. For full details, check out Celeste's blog.

Company man back in town

Jim Carr is coming to the SF Bay Area this weekend to hear Earplay perform his piece, "Four Wilde Aphorisms".

I'm looking forward to hearing it. He told me about it while we were in Eugene last. It came up because I told him I wasn't used to writing music so fast, and "Test Pilot's Lament" had come together in just a couple of weeks. Jim said that "Four Wilde Aphorisms" had been written very fast too and it is his most-performed composition.

So if you are into contemporary chamber music feel free to join us on Monday, March 12 at 7:00 p.m. at Herbst Theatre in San Francisco. Full details are at the Earplay link above.
