I will be hosting a rare public presentation of Bernard Parmegiani's 1975 electronic music masterpiece De natura sonorum this Friday at the Rotunda in West Philadelphia. I'm very excited to introduce this stunning piece of work to a wider audience. Please see the Facebook event page for more information: http://www.facebook.com/events/351166751617355/
My essay "Music, Technology, Utopia: The Legacy of Pietro Grossi" (originally published on Acousmata) is now posted on the English language homepage of the Pietro Grossi Association. It's a great honor for my writings to serve as the introduction to Grossi's life and work.

I'm pleased to announce a new collaboration with Afterpop, a new online music journal out of Mexico City. They have given me column space on their website and will be translating selected pieces of writing from my blog Acousmata into Spanish. I'm honored to have my work shared with a broader global audience and I look forward to further projects with the excellent team at Afterpop.
Please check out the first post there, my "Acousmata Manifesto."
