Participating musicians include Casey Anderson, Raphael Arar, Clay Chaplin, Phil Curtis, Wyatt Penn Keusch, Dan Letourneau, Stephanie Smith and Mark Trayle. If you would like to sign up as a player, please email Raphael Arar: firstname.lastname@example.org. Players will be selected on a first come, first served basis.
Sleep Roseanne; Oboe Nightmare: New Work by James Klopfleisch
the wulf., Los Angeles, CA
Three new works by James Klopfleisch: Four Sleeps for struck ringing objects; The Virgin Joke, an experimental setting of a joke about virginity from the sitcom ‘Roseanne’; and A Bright Future Awaits You… for oboe and tape (played by Claire Chenette).
Also a mystery piece by Sepand Shahab!
Afterwords will follow a short Q&A where Klopfleisch will explain himself, and possibly tell stories from his 12 hour layover in the Miami airport, which he considers an unexpected mini-residency allowing him to write The Virgin Joke.

Experimental Music Yearbook
Center for New Music, San Francisco, CA
$7 General, $5 Members
The Experimental Music Yearbook is pleased to present a concert featuring works from across the musical spectrum. Now entering its 5th year, the Experimental Music Yearbook (www.experimentalmusicyearbook.com) is a curated online repository of contemporary experimental music. Downloadable scores, along with audio from past performances, showcase the diversity of compositional techniques and performances practices that are in use today. This concert presentation will have a dual focus. The first half features work from 2012 guest editor Laura Steenberge and her colleagues at Stanford University. The second half will feature works from throughout the years of the Yearbook’s existence.
All of the pieces will be performed by the composers themselves and the EMY Players, a performance group dedicated to the realization of these works.

American Hardcore (as part of the Experimental Music Yearbook in SF)
ATA, San Francisco, CA
Los Angeles-based artists Casey Anderson and Scott Cazan present new and recent live-electronic work as part of a series of events celebrating the Experimental Music Yearbook’s weekend of San Francisco events. Anderson will present new work interfacing custom circuitry/hardware with improvisatory, digital structures to explore the acoustical properties of musical and non-musical objects. Cazan will present new work involving the use of custom software/hardware feedback networks where misunderstanding, chance, and chaotic elements in algorithms serve to generate new audio and visual information.
LA Times Review of Wolff at REDCAT
Here is the LA Times review of the two-day Christian Wolff mini-festival at REDCAT that I recently performed in.
I recently set up a soundcloud page here which will, over time, replace all of the old audio player widgets that used to be all over this site.

east coast activities: RISD, PVD show, NYC show (3/20 – 3/24)
I will be out East for most of this upcoming week. Here is the plan:
3/20: Acting as guest critic in one of Shona Kitchen’s classes at RISD.
the salon, Providence, RI
New and recent work by Casey Anderson and others (TBA).
II.3: Casey Anderson
Willow Place Auditorium (26 Willow Place, Brooklyn)
New and recent work by Casey Anderson presented as a circus. In other words, a simultaneous performance of numerous works which can be executed simply by speaking, operating radios, or using other everyday objects.
In the words of Travis Just: “So Doug will open a door, I will pluck a guitar and Jason is reading Stalin.”
