Just got back from an idyllic if overly moist week at Tanglewood, where Metropolis Ensemble & I recorded what will eventually be my next record. Tanglewood’s concert season is over and the summergoers have cleared out, so we were able to take over Ozawa Hall, the beautiful medium-large loaf of brick with which Seiji Ozawa immortalized his own ego.
I will excitedly spill all beans regarding this recording when the time comes. In the meantime I am learning sheaves of music for all these gigs coming up in the next month: Druckman with ACME! Derek with Derek! NOW Ensemble!
Nico Muhly has a good post up about how difficult it can be to get recordings of one’s music from orchestras. You can not imagine how much I want everybody to hear Nightjar, but this is the reason you can’t. It’s especially frustrating because in this case, the recording is really, really good, and it would hurt exactly zero people if I were to post it (except me, that is. I might could get sued!).
