Fall in San Diego!
(Is gone...)

This quarter flew by...and I still haven't taken my qualifying exams....BUT I had a great time: touring with David Borgo (KaiBorg) with gigs in Santa Barbara at Colter Frazier's series, and UC Santa Cruz at the International Society for Improvised music (joined by video artist Mark Henrickson-thanks for the great photo, Kris Tiner!) and I presented a paper on John Zorn's Arcana series and metaphor. The Desert Fathers (Gregory Taylor and myself) played in Madison, WI. A busy, work filled, and fun quarter. I feel lucky, good friends to be creative and experience life with...

If you've learned anything in that PhD program, it's how to blog more efficiently...!
