Nothing to fear, nothing to doubt
I have taken this blog for granted and perhaps the internet for granted. I’m rethinking my social media strategy. If I follow through, I’m sure I’ll come up with some fun stuff. I've been blessed to be doing projects on top of my already full schedule. I am not (yet!) a full-time composer. I spend usually over 40 hrs/week working with young people in San Francisco. I come home, hang out with my family, and then work on music/sound projects. It’s sort of crazy, but I've made it work so far.
I recently scored another piece of music for RAWdance’s latest piece, Burn In. The show premiered last weekend at Z Space in San Francisco and they’re performing it again at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts on Friday August 8 as a part of their triennial Bay Area Now 7 Performance Festival. There was a great write up in SFGate specifically mentioning my score (blush). It is truly an honor to be able to make music and share it with others.
With that said, I’m playing a show August 8 (I know, you have to choose between me or RAWdance) at Holy Innocents Church in Noe Valley. The show will be supporting Chris Schlarb in the homestretch of his national solo guitar tour. He’s been sharing songs from his new album, Making the Saint. Joining us will also be Danny Paul Grody. I've been secretly following him for years and he is a fellow composer and creates beautifully, crafted meditative music. It’s going to be a wonderful night.
More to come.
