NYCEMF

I had a good time this weekend at the New York Electroacoustic Music Festival. It was very well run and full of great music. I went to all but 2.5 of the concerts, and kinda feel exhausted now.

Petrichor was performed by a wonderful young clarinetist, Asuka Yamamato. I am happy with the performance, and I think that it fairly unique among the music at the festival, which is nice.

Some of my favorite pieces on the festival include: James Dashow's MATHEMATICS III from ARCHIMEDES (a planetarium opera), Paul Koonce's Clockwork, Irene Buckley and Mike Hannon's Evolution of close double stars, David A. Jaffe's Impossible Animals, and Anne LeBaron's The Left Side of Time.

Hi Adam,

glad you liked our piece! It's a pity we didn't get to meet you at the festival - we didn't attend quite as many concerts as you as we were more intent on doing some sightseeing in the wonderful city of New York....

Maybe we'll bump into you in the future.

All the best,

Mike Hannon
