Speed Vest @ Maker Faire!

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

Brady and I are coming to the Bay Area on the 29th – 31st of May for Maker Faire 2009 in San Mateo!  Somehow we have convinced the lords of the Maker-verse that we are smart and our invention is nifty!  I’m excited to show it off, and doubly so to take it out for some night rides in San Francisco.  But mostly I’m just happy to get to see the Faire and visit my Bay Area pals.

If you’re at the Faire, come find us.  We’ll be at the table with the blinking lights!

Invitation to “In C”, In June, In St. Johns

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

At Noon on June 27th, as part of the St. Johns NO.Fest, I will again be curating a performance of “IN C”, Terry Riley’s awesome avant-garde score for any number of musicians.  I first got to play in this piece last February at LIGHTBAR as part of an ensemble of 12 musicians, struggling in the biting cold.  It was fascinating, exciting, difficult, well-received, and left us all longing to do it again, better.

This time around, we’ll be performing in downtown St. Johns, in summer, at midday.  The performance will kick off a day of avant-garde music and arts in St. Johns, and will be simulcast on KBOO FM.  If you’re a musician who can read sheet music and play well with others, I invite you to join our single-serving orchestra!
