Dans les Nuages

While composer, Phillip Sink, was at Michigan State University, he asked me to write the text for a song cycle he was composing. The title of the three movements became "Dans les Nuages."

It will always remain one of my most cherished collaborations.

Dans les Nuages

















Phillip Sink was born in 1982 in High Point, North Carolina. In 2004, he received bachelor’s degrees in music composition/theory and music education from Appalachian State University. From 2005-2009, Phillip taught middle school orchestra and band in Charlotte, NC. In 2012, he earned master’s degrees in music composition and music theory pedagogy from Michigan State University where he served as a graduate assistant in music theory.

Phillip’s music has been performed in the U.S. and Europe and at many conferences and festivals including: 2015 Aspen Music Festival; 2015 Art and Science Days, Bourges, France; 2015 SEAMUS conference; 2015 N_SEME, 2014 Electroacoustic Barn Dance; 2013 Kansas Music Educators Association conference; 2012 World Saxophone Congress; and 2012 NASA (North American Saxophone Alliance) national conference. Other honors include winning the 2015 Dean’s Prize for chamber music at Indiana University, 2015 Innovox Ensemble’s Green Call for Scores, 2013 Kuttner String Quartet Composition Competition, 2013 NOTUS Prize, and the 2011 MSU composition competition in the categories of orchestra and chamber ensemble. Most recently, Phillip attended the 2015 Aspen Music Festival as a composer fellow.
While at Aspen, he was awarded the 2015 Hermitage Prize by the faculty at AMFS.

Phillip is currently a doctoral fellow at the Jacobs School of Music where he is pursuing a doctoral degree (DM) in music composition with minors in electronic music and music theory. At Indiana University, he served as an associate instructor of composition where he taught courses such as Free Counterpoint, Notation, and Composition for Non-Majors. He studies electronic music with Jeffrey Hass and John Gibson. He studied acoustic composition with Claude Baker, David Dzubay, Aaron Travers, Sven-David Sandström, Ricardo Lorenz, Jere Hutcheson, and Scott Meister.

Advantage, 2015

This installation appeared in Flint Art Projects' art exhibition "H@llow."

Tim Lane, Advantage, 2015

Pedestals made from wood from the attic flooring of the house I grew up in on the East Side of Flint; soccer shoes worn by my children over the years as they grew up with "the beautiful game."

We live in a society where sports is sacred, and athletes are revered. Surely childhood is supposed to be a sacred time—“play” a sacred act. In the sport of soccer—an incredibly fluid activity—play continues when there is a foul if the player who has been fouled can manage to maintain some advantage. The game is not interrupted. The flow is maintained. The vital moment evolves. Nothing positive is lost. If we allow ourselves to lose a sense of “play,” playfulness, or the ability to be in the moment, we run the risk of becoming stagnant, hollow.

A Review of Pure Pop, Revelator Press, 2007

Stumbled upon this once again: a review of Pure Pop, published by Revelator Press what seems like a life time ago. The review was written by Tim Carmody. I don't think we've ever met. One of the most insightful reviews of my earlier work, I'd say, though I must admit some of it won't make sense if you haven't read the poems.

http://short-schrift.blogspot.com/2007/09/pop-life.html?m=1

Here's a link to Pure Pop.

Latest Project: Sentences from an Unwritten Novel

A link to my latest project can be found here.

It's a text-driven effort (compiled in a stripped down blog format) that I'm using to a.) entertain myself; b.) sharpen my writing skills; c.) enhance my imagination and d.) jumpstart a new sense of creative discipline.

The project is called Sentences from an Unwritten Novel. It involves the composition of three totally unrelated sentences each morning.

I hope you dig it.

Oh, and this brief review of Pure Pop written by Tim Carmody. I don't know Tim, but I appreciate the fact that he read Pure Pop, and that he got it.

And this.

Oh, and why not this, as well.
