Today, providing god’s or whatever’s great and glorious infinite will, is the world premiere of my biggest piece to date. “Time Fixtures,” for eleven players and live electronics, was composed as part of the first-ever composer-in-residence position for the McGill Schulich School of Music Contemporary Music Ensemble in collaboration with the McGill Digital Composition Studio (which is directed by my pal, Sean Ferguson). For those of you in Montréal, the concert is at 20h in Salle Pollack. It will be performed by commissioning parties (including myself at the computer) and the features the ever-gracious Denys Bouliane at the podium.
For those who can’t make it, I hope to post an mp3 of the performance in the next few days.
Speaking of mp3s, I finally got some free webspace at McGill and just posted the full recording of my old (2002-2003) string quartet Black Stream. It can be downloaded at the Sequenza21 listening room or directly at http://www.music.mcgill.ca/~jacob/BlackStream.mp3.
Okay, now it’s time to try and sleep.
