Greg did this performance at Exapno in July, and the footage has been sitting around on my computer since then. Then I got Premiere Elements and can finally have an easier time dealing with all the concert footage living on my drives…. Yeah… there’s a lot of it.
His ensemble, The Fourth Wall, played this in a concert at the Exapno New Music Community Center, which was awesome. There’s a video lurking on my drive somewhere of Hilary Abigana playing an Olly Knussen flute solo while dancing on point on a concrete floor. Badass.
Greg commissioned this piece way back when we were at Peabody together, and I still like to come back to it every now and then – it’s a shimmery vibraphone solo and was very fun to write. I hope you like it, too.
