X-fest 2020

The 2020 version of X-fest (experimental arts festival) in Phoenix Arizona took place at Glendale Community College. This is a unique festival of performance art featuring dance, music, and digital media. I premiered a new work of mine, Blackwater, featuring snare drums, mobile phones, and animation. Other highlights from the two-night festival were Steve Reich’s Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices, and Organ, works by Jacob Adler, Matthew Burtner, and Rob Esler, and choreography by Mary Fitzgerald.
