    established composers hosting and moderating What a positive and encouraging experience it was to hear these artists works The evening I hosted included Fay Wang a composer singer from Beijing who presented a work for chamber orchestra and her own voice Florent Ghys a composer contrabassist with a work for acoustic basses cello and guitar and Joo Won Park whose work involved live processing of toys and found objects with live and fixed video One evening in New York Todd Shalom threw a reunion party for Elastic City artists which I will always remember as the Chair Walk One of the artists found a solid wood old school desk chair on the street near BAM and we carried the chair with us for the rest of the evening into the subway station on the Q train and all the way to Brighton Beach We took turns sitting in the chair and photographing it in various locations and finally parked it on the beach where it may or may not still remain While in New York I managed to visit the Cindy Sherman retrospective at MoMA the Whitney Biennial the Keith Haring retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum and galleries in Chelsea where I saw a work by Traci Horgan at International Print Center I also attended two beautiful concerts at the Stone one with Luciano Chessa and one with cellist Ashley Bathgate Luciano was in top form with a delicious program including Joan LaBarbara s sensory deprivation piece and his own prepared piano piece involving 15 or 20 electric toothbrushes inside the piano The piece though completely acoustic sounded like remarkable electronic music And I saw a lovely piece by Peter Sciscioli Ana Sofrenovic at Roulette Beautiful minimal work involving two abstract voices and a lot of focused pedestrian choreography My New York week was just bursting with art and at one point I felt so full that I had to leave the museum before being induced to have that one more itty bitty wafer thin mint which would surely have caused me to explode What s for Summer Activity has slowed a bit for the coming summer but I still have some public and private events coming up I ll be flying to New York again to record with Vijay Iyer and Mike Ladd And here in San Francisco my avant chamber series ROOM continues with two more concerts Rated R for Violins and Voice Cage And I ve scheduled another installment of SoundWORK my sound performance workshop for which enrollment is now open Scroll down for details on these events and I hope to see you at some of them Baci PZ Some Pipes on the street in Chelsea Plane Wing Sunset PZ remembering her first Phone Number in a still from Memory Trace Luciano plays his beautiful piano piece at the Stone PZ s installation Fount The Chair waits for the Q on the Atlantic Pacific Station Platform PZ and the Chair ride the Subway Todd in the
