I’m very happy to say that my new ensemble, ACME, has a show coming up at Melbourne Festival this year. It features new works by myself, Joe O’Connor and Reuben Lewis, and a great lineup of performers. I’m currently working on a new piece titled electric sheep, for improvising ensemble directed by a computer. The computer instructs the performers how to play based, and makes those decisions based on what it hears the ensemble playing. So a cool little feedback loop- and a starting point for simple intelligence and aesthetic decisions.
A little earlier this year I was fortunate enough to play and record some of Josh Kyle’s new music for voice, drums and multiple guitars. It’s great music, lots of fun and as always Josh sounds fantastic. The debut was at the Melbourne Recital Centre and I’m looking forward to more performances, but in the meantime it’s well worth checking out some of the videos we made.
