As I suspect all readers know at this point, the COVID-19 situation has pretty much shut down all concerts for an extended period of time–something which has been quite difficult on all of us in the music world, beyond the already difficult task of dealing with a global pandemic.
Fortunately, my dear friends in Onomatopoeia (Cassie Lear, flute; Soren Hamm, saxophones; Rebecca Olason, horn) are going to be offering up a “virtual” world premiere of my Cyan Egg Music, Op. 59, via their Facebook page. The premiere will be going live tonight, Saturday, April 4th, at 5pm Pacific Time.
Onomatopoeia also has a Ko-fi donation page up right now, in case you’d like to show your support for this and their other recent streaming/online performance efforts, which have been a very welcome respite from the current state of affairs in the world.
I hope you will all check it out and that you enjoy the performance–I can’t say enough about how thrilled I am to have the opportunity to have this phenomenal group playing my latest efforts. I’ll also be posting again soon with more about Cyan Egg Music, particularly some of the harmonic technique that powers it.
