More information about the Concert Event:
With the help of several of my colleagues, we will construct an 6′ X 10′ wall that will be moved between various places in Denton, TX. The wall will have the words “Before I die I want to _______” written in columns on one side of the wall. Anyone walking by can pick up a piece of chalk, reflect on their lives, and share their personal aspirations in a public space. These words will then be used as lyrics incorporated into my original music composition to be performed live in concert at the Panhandle House Warehouse Room. The piece will combine elements of South Indian music, Gospel, R&B, Jazz Fusion, and minimalism. While the music is being played images of the wall will be projected onto the warehouse’s brick walls. During this concert, music of various genres will be performed throughout the evening.

The music of the concert includes the minimalist style of Jim Doyle’s one actopera and song cycle, my original compositions for a mixed jazz fusion and classical ensemble, as well as the jazz fusion music of the Funky Knuckles.
