new piece for Open House Chicago

Saturday, October 13, I will premiering (approximately 6 times!) a new piece:  
After the fire, quarries dynamited for bassoon and fixed media.

Access Contemporary Music commissioned this project as part of the annual Open House Chicago events organized by the Chicago Architecture Foundation.  One of four ACM composers working at different buildings throughout the city, I have written the piece inspired by the material textures and history of the Nickerson Mansion. I will be performing the piece every 20-30 minutes from 1-4 PM on the third floor of the house (which is also known as the Driehaus Museum).

Nickerson Mansion
40 E. Erie
1:00 to 4:00 PM
