Busiest week of the year!

Finally finished my piece Fukushima Breakdown for the Orkestra Futura: Phoenix Rising concert on November 12

Very excited to be working with the band again: Chad MacQuarrie/guitar, Chris Gestrin/keys,

JP Carter/trumpet, DB Boyko/voice, Tommy Babin/bass, Lee Hutzulak/electicity, Skye Brooks/drums,

Special Guests Rainer Wiens and Joane Hétu.


My workshops at Prussin Music on Sundays in November is almost full. Two more spaces to fill.

The NOW Improv workshops at the Western Front going great. Come on down and check them out

on Mondays from either 4 - 6 pm or 7:30 - 9:30 pm. They're free. Full up but lots of fun to come and

observe the proceedings. I hope we can do them more than once a year.


Still working away on my piece for the VICO to be played at the end of March 2012.

I'm pretty excited about that.

My duo CD with drummer Joe Poole is mixed and we're just working on the packaging and

plans for marketing.

A week Sunday I record a duo CD with guitarist Rainer Wiens while he is in town.
