Roland Kayn essay published
My first published writing, "The Time of Roland Kayn's Cybernetic Music," recently appeared in the book released to accompany the festival "Sonic Acts XIV: Travelling Time," which took place in Amsterdam in February 2012. The book features essays and interviews with Pauline Oliveros, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Siegfried Zielinski, and many others. You can buy it online for a very reasonable 25 Euros.
I'm happy to announce that I've been awarded a Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowship for the 2012-2013 academic year. I'm very grateful to have this generous financial support as I bring my dissertation to a close.
Raymond Scott event
This Friday, March 16, I'll be hosting a Bowerbird event highlighting the career of the remarkable American bandleader, composer, and electronic music pioneer Raymond Scott.
Raymond Scott experts Jeff Winner and Irwin Chusid will present "Inventing the Machine Man: A Multimedia Raymond Scott Exploration." The event will also feature a screening of the new documentary film "Deconstructing Dad: The Music, Machines, and Mystery of Raymond Scott," which Winner co-produced.
