Past Performances: 2015

background:

In 2015, Jackson Randall and I performed often as Middle Grey until late spring. In July, I completed a residency at Salem Art Works in Salem, NY with Boom Bat Gesture Performance Group, in which we generated the satircal children’s show BBG in Blankland!. The show premiered on August 20 at Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn, NY. Silent Isle recordings RES/URU/SER and Surrounding the Dragon were released in the summer & fall. I started working with new tools, on new solo material. Middle Grey hatched plans to release a collection of recordings across three digital releases in late January 2016.
