Hi folks, I've got a very busy February and two very special events in March.February 16 is my next "Moving with the Light" Concert and Dance Jam at 119 Gallery in Lowell, with music by Eric Crawley, Harpejji, and Dave Bryant, keyboards and YOU -- movement -- All styles and skill levels welcome. Moving with the Light is a monthly event at which improvised movement, music, and video interact as equals -- each responding to and respectful of the others.
The musicians will play improvised music suitable for contact improvisation and other forms of gentle movement, while I improvise imagery and all three of us react to the dancers as well as to each other.
February 17 is my next Visual Music Live event at Outpost 186 in Cambridge, featuring The OUTPOST Band
