As some of you may know, I retired from teaching last May after 33 years at
Oberlin. This year I am on what Oberlin unfortunately calls a "terminal"
leave. The up side of this leave is that they have funded the production of
a recording of new surround sound works that I have been making since last
There is a general move at Oberlin to make closer connections between TIMARA
and traditional composition. To this end, there are two openings in
composition that include digital media in their list of qualifications. You
can find these positions at:
The deadline is Jan 15. I have nothing to do with interviews or hiring so
use the contacts in the postings.
In addition to the new recording, I am kicking off my "first annual farewell
tour" with a solo concert at The Stone in NYC on Jul 20. I am booking other
concerts in North America and Europe between Aug 2008 and September 2009. I
am also looking for short-term teaching gigs (sabbatical replacement, etc.)
for 2008-2010. If you are interested in discussing bookings or teaching,
contact me off list.
