I regularly improvise in a variety of contexts. There is improvisation for an audience and there is improvisation for personal growth and edification. I am involved in both.
Percussionist Jason Trueting and I perform as Little Farm.
I frequently improvise with students in the context of composition lessons, just for fun, or as part of the seminar that I teach called House Band: composers/performers. I lead this seminar at residencies outside of Princeton University as well. The next installment of House Band will be at Tanglewood in July, 2011. Exact dates TBA.
I am in the process of collaborating with choreographer/videographer Mark DeChiazza and dancer Ellysa Dole to create a large new work for solo electric guitar, dancer and video.
