I’m excited to be performing with Anna Friz again, and we’re honored to be the “pre-festival teaser” for the 2013 Megapolis Audio Festival.

Our previous performance with Anna’s radio installation was in Respire (2011) at ESS. Before that, we performed on tour in the Eastern US, while creating Dancing Walls Stir the Prairie (2007) at the free103point9.org Wave Farm, for broadcast on Kunstradio-Radiokunst in Vienna. Our very first collaboration took place in the 2005 Deep Wireless Festival, with a different instrumentarium. Our radio theater work, entitled Other Music was created and performed with Evalyn Parry (text, voice, cassette player), Chris Brookes (voice, cassette player), Anna Friz (voice, cassette player), and myself (springboard). You can listen to the recording here. (Recorded live at The Drake Hotel on May 27, 2005; duration 9:01.)
