Will be presenting a new paper Radically Quiet at the fifth conference of the Society For Minimalist Music: Minimalism Unbounded! 23-27 Sept in Turku and Helsinki Finland. Have already arrived in Helsinki where I have thus far seen a lecture by Phill Niblock and will see performances of his work on Saturday at Korjaamo. Tonight jouhikko master Pekko Kappi. I believe the Minimalism Unbounded! conference is free for the public to attend so if you're in Turku or Helsinki you should drop in. I will be presenting my paper at 1:30-3pm session in the Auditorio at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki on the 26th Sept. In further news I have two performances in Helsinki coming up: 25/9 at Nikolai 2 - a boat that circles Helsinki's centre. Duo free improvisatory performance with cellist Sergio Castrillon. DETAILS 27/9 at Krunan Keikka #13, Krunan Mesta, Helsinki. Solo set. Will be occurring as part of the Pixelache Festival. DETAILS

Me performing the work of Henry Flynt. Recorded in WNYU studios with Flynt supervising. Post-production supervised also by Henry Flynt. A solo violin version of Banjo Country and a newer less readily heard piece called Solo Rock Blues also for solo electric violin.
All from 30 August 2015 ABC No Rio Sunday C.O.M.A series event. ABC No Rio is a legendary downtown Hardcore venue where the walls are currently covered in flyers from their infamous Saturday Matinee series that continues to this day. Something special for me to be improvising in those surrounds being someone as influenced by Oi Polloi, Black Flag and Poison Idea as I am by Coleman, Conrad or Flynt.
