Tim appears on Art Talks Again

You might remember that last March I had the good fortune to attend Willapa Bay Air in Oysterville, WA for a month-long composition residency.

While there, I was interviewed by fellow artist Gina Borg, a phenomenal visual artist, who also happens to host a podcast that interviews artists about their practice. Gina interviewed all of us at Willapa, and I am happy to report that my episode is finally available. You can hear my interview on Art Talks Again at iTunes, or over at the podcast website. If you are interested, you can subscribe and learn more about the other fabulous artists who I was in residence with.

I am really happy with the way the interview turned out. After listening to it, I found I could re-enter the creative mindset I was in while at Willapa Bay Air, which is proving to be extremely generative for my work this summer as I revise many of the compositions I composed in Washington.

I am happy to announce that I will be heading off to Virginia in a week to begin my summer residency as a composition fellow at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. As I finish the Kickstarter campaign for Rivulets this summer, it will be refreshing to also inhabit some new some creative space, and to allow new ideas to begin percolating. I have been considering writing some short pieces for solo piano, so I intend to start there. However, one of the greatest gifts at residency is the freedom it allows to simply explore new creative work.

As I begin to explore my next creative project, I hope you will join me in putting the finishing touches on Rivulets. If you haven’t already done so, please visit the album’s Kickstarter page and make your contribution. This is turning out to be such a productive and energizing summer, and I’d love to have you be a part of it.
