Its always a treat when my work inspires others. I learned recently that trombonist and euphoniumist Brett Keating, a Masters student in Luzern, Switzerland, has commissioned composer Thomas C. Lang to write a sonata in three movements – each movement will be inspired by and named after one of my three main bodies of work: Alleys & Ruins, The Glam Bugs and the Crystals. Keating asked me for permission, telling me I was his favorite artist. How could I possibly say no! The premiere performance will be in Luzern in the Fall, and will feature a slideshow of my work behind the musicians. The multimedia performance will be streamed live and will be available for viewing on my site after that.
