Visions of The Wild / MUSIX

Greetings All!

I have a quick reminder and BIG news for our developing Music Industry & Production program at SOU


First the quick reminder:

NorCal Water Music @ the 7th Annual Visions of the Wild Film & Arts Festival

WEDNESDAY APRIL 21 @ 5pm, PST

I am a member of landscapemusic.org, an international composers collective, which will be featured at the 7th Annual Visions of the Wild Film & Arts Festival. After two World Premiere performances of two new works for flute and cello, commissioned by Landscape Music, my friends Cathie Apple (flute) and Timothy Stanley (cello) of Citywater, my esteemed composer-colleagues, Nell Shaw Cohen and Ryan Suleiman, and myself as a panel will introduce and discuss excerpts from works that take inspiration from places in and around the Bay Area. We'll discuss responses to my own NorCal Water Music, Cohen’s Transforming Forest, and Suleiman’s Burning.

Now for the BIG news about the Music Industry & Production at the Oregon Center for the Arts Music Program!


Many of you know that we moved up to Ashland Oregon so that I could start my new position at Southern Oregon University. Well, it is going splendidly. This coming Friday, April 23 at 12:30pm, MUSIX, the premiere ensemble associated with the Music Industry & Production program will drop their first release MUSIX-Q1'21-EP ! It is a mix of four songs that vary in style a scope. It is a testament to creativity in the face of the pandemic, a spirited 'guitar windmill' to its condemnation. Directed and produced by Derek Keller, this music was composed entirely by the students of the program, all collaborators in the MUSIX ensemble.


Check out the Press Release!


While the official drop date is April 23, feel free to enjoy the music and celebrate!
