Ken Thomson and Slow/Fast: Settle
New feature in Critical Read: “Ken Thomson exemplifies a new generation of composers tasked with picking up the pieces of music history.” is online now, written by Maggie Malloy.
Fantastic critical reception for “Sextet” — featured as top of 2018 on Second Inversion, AnEarful and more.
This Fall, I’ll be performing Steve Reich’s “Music for 18 Musicians” and performing my version of his “New York Counterpoint” for 11 clarinets (that I recorded) for the first time in NY at Brookfield Place/World Financial Center on October 15-16 for a live recording by WNYC’s New Sounds.
Also coming up before the end of 2019! My sextet will be heading to U Missouri/Columbia and U Nebraska/Kearney to do performances and classes; and I’ll be heading to Australia to perform on the Dots+Loops Festival and to work with Ensemble Offspring and composer fellows at their Hatched Academy.
