trioXML will present it's premier concert in Münster, Germany on January 10 2015 at the black box. (postponed until June)
Yes, that's right. An ensemble of flute, tuba and electric guitar. And Max/MSP.
We'll be performing a full length version of Expo, a trio piece written by Stockhausen around 1969. We'll also be playing several solo works (I'll also be performing Tristan Murail's Vampyr! for solo electric guitar) as well as a few pieces of our own. From the concert announcement:
Pavel Tseliapniou (Germany) – Flutes
Jan Termath (Germany) – Tuba
Jeremy Sagala (USA) – Electric Guitar, Electronics
On June 10, ensemble:hörsinn presented a portrait concert of my work at the BlackBox in Münster, Germany. The pieces performed were "Stalking the Wild Moon" performed by Gereon Voß, "through autumn into winter" performed by Pavel Tseliapniou and Deborah Rawlings, "Solstice2" by Deborah Rawlings, "the Strand (3.262)" played by Norbert Fabritius, and "die Grenzen der Sprache" an ensemble work. It was an extraordinary experience to work with such talented and dedicated players.

This past October I presented a concert with fellow faculty composer Paul Coleman at SUNY Fredonia. I really enjoy events like this--they are a great motivator and make my work more goal-oriented. They're also a great opportunity to work with some of the talented performers around me. My solo marimba work "Stalking the Wild Moon" was presented by Tim Bausch, a composition/percussion grad student. Dr. Andrew Seigel again presented my "silence hangs in misty layers". Thank you, thank you gentlemen!
Several electronic works were premiered as well--durch den Spiegel and immer tiefer, immer rühiger. An electronic version of my two piano work the Farthest Shore seemed to be received well. From what I can gather from the attendees, the music was enjoyed if not entirely understood. What more could one really ask for though?
