On October 29th I'll be performing a solo show featuring material from my 2013 album Illuminations at The Shaw Room in The National Gallery of Ireland.

"NYSFERATU: Symphony of a Century" Screening with Live Score

unnamed.jpg

Thursday September 7th I'm joining the Michael Leonhart Orchestra to provide a live, improvised score for Andrea Mastrovito's NYsferatu. Resetting Friedrich W. Murnau’s classic 1922 film Nosferatu in contemporary New York City, Mastrovito and his team of 12 artists have created over 35,000 original drawings to replicate the beautifully eerie flickering shutter effect of early cinema. The re-imagined storyline and title cards of NYsferatu were made in collaboration with recent immigrants and English-as-new-language learners. The show is free, and starts at dusk (around 7:30PM)! Hope to see you there!
