Vital Weekly on "Bind the Hand that Feeds" - Michael Foster, Katherine Young,
Michael Zerang
http://www.vitalweekly.net/1173.html
"They excel in six concentrated and dynamic improvisations with very abstract
sound-oriented research as their playground. They use many if not only extended techniques. In
cases of this kind of improvisation I tend to use the term ‘abstract’, as I just did, but at the same
time, this music is also very physical and down-to-earth. And above all, it is very musical and
dramatic with breathtaking moments that are the fruit of the very concentrated and communicative
interactions between the three. Just wonderful!" (DM)

Piece Her Together / When stranger things happen - available now to watch and listen!

A little over a year ago - and less than year after my son was born - I made a piece of music for the stage with Ensemble Dal Niente, Amanda DeBoer Bartlett, Emmi Hilger, Kera MacKenzie, Nicholas James, Jessica Doyle, Grace Tilka, and Eliza Brown. My piece is called When stranger things happen, and it's a #feminist labor of love about losing, finding, becoming, and creating. Eliza Brown also made a piece entitled The Body of the State, and together our pieces were presented together in a production entitled Piece Her Together.

The documentation is finished and up for viewing (https://youtu.be/iM5c9VLnRrw) and listening (https://dalniente.bandcamp.com/releases)!
