Point to Line at the National Flute Association Convention

Point to Line, my flute duo with flutist and composer LisaBost-Sandberg will give a short performance-lecture of our own compositions at the National Flute Association  convention in New Orleans. My performance at the convention is funded in part by a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council. I received a Professional Development Grant for travel and lodging expenses.

At 10am on Sunday, August 11th, I will perform Transition for Solo Flute (featured on my album, A Moment in Mythica), and Lisa will perform her solo flute work, Fluxion. Between our performances, we will discuss our compositions, their relationships to improvisation, and other compositional techniques. We will end the performance-lecture by improvising together. We will be featured on a larger program called, “Solo Concert: Beatboxing, Extended Techniques, and More.” 

This concert is unique as works by living flutist-composer-performers are in the minority of convention programming. Point to Line’s spot is further atypical at an NFA convention because it will feature improvisation! Lisa and I formed Point to Line in the fall of 2010 because of our mutual interest in contemporary music for flute.
