Vibe Rant has another outing; this time at Ensemble Offspring's 'Sizzle', Petersham Bowling Club, April 23:

In Ensemble Offspring's words:

'Sizzle is contemporary classical music at the local bowlo. Now in it’s seventh year, Sizzle has become a fixture in the Inner West arts calendar.

With the usual mix of art-meets-popular culture-meets-family fun, this year promises an all female composer line-up; special guest artists and jazz super-collective, Sirens Big Band; an interactive music installation for contrabass clarinet and ping pong balls by Melbourne-based Aviva Endean; and an eco-friendly instrument-building workshop with a twist for all ages by Liz Jigalin. Add a dash of chaos for good measure! It’s free and family-friendly as usual.'

While in Melbourne, I met up with Megan Steller of Rehearsal Magazine for a quick chat about Lobster Tales and composer-y things.

The score and parts for my trio Frogstomp (flute/picc, bass clarinet & percussion) and percussion duo Tweedledrum are now available via the Australian Music Centre.

An e-book written by Tristan Coelho, in preparation for MLC School's Australian Music Day 2016, is also available. It includes analysis of my Tweedledrum, Melody Eotvos's The King in Yellow, and Andrew Ford's Lullaby and Fire Dance, along with composition activities for senior high school students.
