Hello world! Winning the McKnight Fellowship has been incredible for me. It allowed me to buy an Axis 64, a MIDI input device with 192 velocity-sensitive keys arranged into a hexagonal pattern. I have already written a piece for it, commissioned by the Spitting Image Composers collective, called “Extinction”, in 53-tone equal temperament. I have already performed it twice as part of the Hear and Now concert series. I added a pre-mastered version on my samples page.
Some of the fellowship will also go towards a new album that I hope to release by the end of the year, inspired by William Blake’s “Proverbs of Hell”. More on that later!
