Write After Reading

Last Saturday we did a development reading of Summer’s Twilight at Art House in Jersey City. It was an awesome event, with lots of amazing people doing really fun things. Plus everyone liked my food! Or at least, I got enough compliments that seemed sincere enough to me that I’ll...

Thank you to Choc-O-Pain’s new location!

I want to talk about our bread sponsor for the Summer’s Twilight reading this Saturday. Choc-O-Pain are a new addition to the Van Vorst Park & Harsimus Cove neighborhoods in Jersey City, but oh my god are they welcome. They’re the second store of a bakery based in Hoboken, and...

One of my favorite things about Greg Jukes

Is that sometimes he just emails me to say “Hey! I’m playing your piece tomorrow… in Alaska!” Dude. Sweet. That’s his view. Greg’s sweet theatrical ensemble, The Fourth Wall, is the guest artist at the University of Alaska Fairbanks New Music Festival, and they’re playing an awesome program, including Crystal...

Ian Richter playing Prufrock in Baltimore

On Feb. 13th Ian Richter is going to be rocking the heck out of The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, as he often does. Churches in a lot of cities host short lunchtime concerts. It’s a great way to make a cultural contribution and engage office workers in their...

New Video of Crystal Tresses in the Sky

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,...

New Videos of The Stain of Love!

Jason Buckwalter is awesome. He’s a wonderful singer, he’s funny onstage, and he always does a wonderful job with my music. This performance was at the Mount Vernon Music Space in Baltimore, as part of a concert I organized together with Megan Ihnen and Zachary Herchen called “Everybody We Know,...

Ruckus NYC Totally Rocked

We’re coming up on two weeks since Ruckus NYC. After recovering from a computer failure, we can begin work on the conference videos and concert footage. Also in that time we’ve been paying artists and speakers $50 each. With almost three dozen people involved, we’re very proud to be able...

Ten Tickets Away

This is a re-post from my recent Kickstarter Backer update. It’s getting exciting folks, Ruckus NYC is only four short days away! Dear Backers, Thank you again for being part of Ruckus NYC. We’re working very, very hard this week to make sure that Saturday is amazing. As of now,...

Why Ruckus NYC?

I’ve been saying it a lot recently: Ruckus NYC is a one-day conference and concert about art and the internet, happening on September 29th at Cooper Union. It’s going to be awesome. But something else has been bubbling up in my head, about why we’re doing this, and why it’s...

RUCKUS NYC is live on Kickstarter!

Which means that yes, I am asking you for money. It’s been about a year and a half, but finally, instead of writing about Kickstarter I am once again using Kickstarter. RUCKUS NYC means a lot to me, and I hope you’ll want to be a part of it. It’s...

I Love Public Online Collaboration

It makes composition so much less lonely. Yes, I’m still sitting alone in my house making things up, but other people can chime in and help me think through neat dramatic issues or musical ideas if they want to. And the best part is that they can participate while I’m...
