2013 Year in Review

In September of 2013, I became an Assistant Professor in the Film Scoring Department at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. I’m teaching courses in film composition and in technical computer skills for film composers (aka sequencing). Teaching film music at Berklee has been an incredible inspiration- it is truly an honor to bring this art form to a new generation of musicians.

And of course, I’m continuing to teach in the Jazz and Contemporary Improvisation departments at New England Conservatory as well, where I work on completely different things, more based on my work as a composer and improvisor. And of course it is a huge honor to do that too.

And I’m also working on as many film composition projects as possible!

Such as: in 2013, I completed the score for Tatanka, a feature-length documentary by Jacob Bricca which is currently screening at festivals.

I also continued work on Peter Cohn’s Holy Land, which is nearing completion as of this writing. Several other doc projects are in the works for 2014.

I’ve also been composing new music for small ensembles – my new trio (piano, alto saxophone and drums) played several gigs of all new original compositions in Boston and New York  in 2013 and more are coming. And very exciting things are in the works for the Kalmanovitch/Coleman/Reichman trio…
