The Kitchen and Bohemian National Hall, NYC 2016

My move to New York started with a concert on February 9, 2016:

To celebrate the release of the archival CD The Kitchen Improvises: 1976–1983 on Orange Mountain Music, composer George Lewis curates an evening of performances by Thomas Buckner (voice), Earl Howard (saxophones and electronics), Oliver Lake (saxophones),  Lewis (electronics, trombone), Michael Lytle (clarinets), Miya Masaoka (koto and electronics), Ikue Mori (electronics), Andrea Parkins (accordion, objects, electronics), and Lucie Vítková (accordion and voice), inspired by that flowering of hybridity on the downtown New York music scene.

On May 9, 2016, I was part of the concert at Bohemian National with premiere of my piece Places to Meet for violin duo String Noise of Pauline Kim Harris, Konrad Harris and myself on accordion. At the end of the evening, I played an improvisation set with members of S.E.M. ensemble, George Lewis and Roscoe Mitchell.
