Hi folks,I'll be doing video improvisations Friday night at 119 Gallery in Lowell (my favorite performance space) as part of the 2012 edition of XFest. I'm on for the first five sets Friday evening --The format of the festival is simple and challenging: 20 visiting artists and 40 local artists perform. On Fri and Sat evenings there are 10 half-hour sets with 2 visiting artists and 2 local artists -- I've pasted the full schedule below.
Not much can be more special than XFest, but a visual music live performance with four of my favorite amazing wind players sure comes close-:)
