New Releasings

Labor Records in collaboration with Naxos is releasing a series of recordings of my work covering more than half a century! The most recent release is "Jukebox in the Tavern of Love" paired with a new work by Meredith Monk. "The Nude Paper Sermon" and "Wiretap" is a double album containing no fewer than five works; see below for details. "Civilization & its Discontents" is a words-and-music collaboration with Michael Sahl. More information, reviews and ordering (physical or digital editions) is available below or by going to Labor Records.

20 Years of Cutting Edge Concerts

Victoria Bond’s review of the twenty years of her Cutting Edge Concerts on New Music Box <http://www.newmusicbox.org/articles/twenty-seasons-of-cutting-edge-concerts/> includes a nice paragraph on her performance of “The True Last Words of Dutch Schultz” with Theo Bleckman (who originated the role in Europe) and directed by Valeria Vasilevski (who put the libretto together out of Dutch Schultz’s actual last words and directed the original European touring production). Victoria also directed the Symphony Space production with Dirk Weiler (directed by Grethe Holby) which was a feature of the 2007 Wall-to-Wall Opera Marathon.
