* TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 4TH - YACHTING WITH THE KENNEDYS at SAMA
After a long summer, I'm back and trying out a new concept of an immersive experience at the San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA) on Saturday October 6th from 3pm - 5pm.  


Come explore music, dance and performance art in all corners of SAMA highlighted by a scavenger hunt, cosplay and grand finale of the 6-SIDED Keyboard.

The basis of Yachting with the Kennedy’s is creating this surrealistic world by placing musicians, performers and costumed characters in various gallery spaces in the museum, where attendees can explore and engage. Those who dare enter this world will also be encouraged to participate in a scavenger hunt in which discovering clues can activate secret performances.

The finale will be new works I've composed on a 1970’s vintage 6-sided keyboard. This unique vintage keyboard has six key stations with different outputs which will allow me to create a surround sound experience in the Great Hall at SAMA. Inspired by director, Luis Buñuel’s Le Fantôme de la liberté, each of the six pianists will use a gold toilet as their piano bench and each will be dressed in full regalia.

* THURSDAY AUGUST 30TH - FALL FINALLY

After Orlando it was a relatively quiet summer. I spent a lot of summer composing new material for my Headphone Opera and this beast - the 6-Sided keyboard. I'm excited to premiere it throughout the fall. I'll post some cool updates on the Headphone Opera and the 6-Sided Keyboard.

* THURSDAY JULY 12TH - OPERA ON A BUS ORLANDO
My first time in Orlando was quite the success.  I brought my Opera on a Bus to a new audience and it got raving reviews and a ton of coverage.  Click on the photo for the Orlando Sentinel review and click this link for a review by Telemundo.  The bottom photo is a snap shot at the premiere of my piece I wrote for Orlando Contemporary Chamber Orchestra called, Legion of Felix.

* APRIL 30TH 2018 - MUSIC FOR DOG TOYS
Here is an audience participation piece using dog toys, magazines, pens and voice. I did with From Those Who Follow the Echoes at San Antonio Museum of Art last month. 
My fave part is around the 1:40 where a combination of the dog toys and whistling created such a reverberous sound!
