With No Surroundings There Can Be No Path
Here's a recording of my hot-off-the-press piece, With No Surroundings There Can Be No Path, which is part of Nat Evans's months-long project The Tortoise and His Raincoat: Music for a Very Long Walk. It uses field recordings Nat made along part of his journey on the Pacific Crest Trail, roughly passing where I grew up to where I live now.
You can read about the whole project here: http://natevansmusic.com/1/post/2014/03/the-tortoise-and-his-raincoat-music-for-a-very-long-walk.html

New Video: Isaacson's the way of all flesh
This entire concert received a wonderful review in Isaac Shankler's Spring Concert Journal on NewMusicBox (I am a little biased towards the review because I was called "masterful" and "transfixing" which made me pretty excited). He also writes about three other Los-Angeles-area concerts by the LA Phil, What's Next Ensemble, and Timur and the Dime Museum.

New Video: Saariaho's Folia
I'm excited about putting some video online from a recent recital I played of works for bass and electronics. First up, Kaija Saariaho's Folia. Hope you enjoy it!
This was the first concert I played on a new bass that Barrie Kolstein built for me. It will be really lovely to play this instrument for years and years to come.
