Hey all—tune in Thursday, 1/18/24 at 7:00PM EST for my Composers Now IMPACT premiere! It would be great to see you there in the chat! Alongside an extensive discussion of my practice, will be the new music from an upcoming project!
Ensemble Decipher will perform at Roulette Intermedium (509 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217) on October 23rd, 8:00PM. Doors open at 7:30PM. The program will include works by Bora Yoon, Erin Rogers, and Lyn Goeringer. It will also include a collaboration between choreographer and dancer Hiva Sedaghat and ensemble members Niloufar Nourbakhsh, Robert Cosgrove, and Taylor Long.
We greatly appreciate the support of the Alice M. Ditson Fund, the Copland Fund for New Music, the Amphion Foundation, the Fromm and Barlow Foundations, the Brooklyn Arts Council, Reed College, and the numerous individuals who have already donated. This project could not have been achieved without you!

[IQ-Wall Artist Meet & Greet] [March 9th]: Thursday 5:00 – 6:00 PM University Grill, Administration Building, IU South Bend
Festival welcome address and introductory remarks featuring interactive media works by Eric Lemmon (Politics I) and Lark Spartin (DIstant Distraction, Foul Breach, Separate Sensation) at the IQ-Wall. This will be a great opportunity to meet festival artists and those who worked to put the festival together.
It’s been such an honor and joy seeing how much life my work, Politics I, has been getting! Coming up, the piece will also be performed at the SEAMUS national conference here in NYC in April! I’ll also be giving a SEPARATE presentation on the work, describing the participatory sonification system that underpins the work and how that enables the audience to engage, concretely, with a politics of aesthetic preference. Get those THUMBS READY to text and get ready to compete over the shape of the work!
More details, including date and time of both the performance and paper presentation, will be coming soon, but even more importantly, I can’t wait to see all the amazing performances and interesting research that everyone is doing!
Truly honored to have several works included in this year’s Performing Media Festival! First up, an audio-visual rendering of Astraeus, from my upcoming album, Timegivers, will be installed at the South Bend Museum of Art in either the Museum’s Project Room Gallery or the Weikamp Gallery from 1.14-3.19.23. Then, Politics I will be performed during the festival, March 9-10!
Super excited to be back with friends at the Australasian Computer Music Conference for both an Artist Talk and a performance of Politics I. There will be quite a few housekeeping updates to the software, but most notable will be Discord integration for users without twitter or for those who can’t text US numbers!
You can find our more about the conference here. Once I get the conference schedule, I’ll update this post!
