Out and about

Sunset on the Hudson River

I am visiting the USA to attend the Harvard Summer Composition Institute and arrived in New York on Friday night. During the Composition Institute I will be participating in classes with Chaya Czernowin, Hans Tutschku and Steven Takasugi, meeting fellow composers and working with the Talea Ensemble on my new trio for bass clarinettist, cellist and percussionist, The Incredulity of St Thomas, which will be performed on Sunday, 26 August.

Above, you see the sun setting on the Hudson River from Manhattan, while the picture below shows a screen that is currently showing One11 and 103, a video and sound work by John Cage, which I stumbled upon in the Highline — the raised railway track in the Meatpacking District, which has been converted into a wonderful park.
