Nonesuch Records released Silver Threads April 29.
My album Silver
Threads is now out on Nonesuch! Performed by Mellissa Hughes;
text by Greg Alan
Brownderville, Tarfia Faizullah, Kristin Kelly, Dora Malech, and Zach
Savich; mixed by Damian Taylor, mastered by the Lodge. WQXR calls it "stylish,
energy", and the UK Independent remarks that "at times,
the results resemble the electro-soul of James Blake, except that
Hughes's measured recitation has a cool emotional distance."
Threads news: we had a blast at our May 7 release show at (Le)
Poisson Rouge; Mellissa will sing a couple selections at the Tribeca New Music Festival
on May 17; and we've got a few other future performances in the
mix--stay tuned for details!
Mellissa sang selections from Silver Threads at her recital
on Lincoln Center's American Songbook series in March--kudos to
Mellissa for the great LC debut!
I recently spoke about contemporary electronic music
on NPR's Here and Now--check out the story here.
As part of the latest Sleeping Giant collaboration,
I'm finishing up a work for eighth

After that, next up for me is a piece for The Living Earth Show.
Orchestra of Brooklyn performed my Stabat Mater Dolorosa in a dark
church on a snowy night in
December. Many thanks to the talented SoB and the brave audience!
