Returning to the scene of our last revival of Vipassana, Numinous will again be performing Vipassana at the Brooklyn Lyceum on Wednesday September 22nd from 8pm to around 9pm (one set only). The Lyceum is located at 227 4th Avenue in Park Slope and tickets are $10 at the door or in advance at the Lyceum website. And like last year, starting in September on the blog, I'll be posting my Inside Vipassana series in which I pull the mask off and give you a peek behind the music. The series also includes interviews with some members of Numinous in order to get a player's perspective of performing the music, check back in September for all-new installments!
Bring a friend (or two or three, the Lyceum is pretty spacious after all) and come experience the clarity and insight of Vipassana for yourself...

I'm not Dead, it's just Summer
I feel like it has been a while since I last posted, but the summer is when I actually have some time for a few activities that I usually don't have time for during the school year, so I've been off enjoying: visiting Paris; building fences (seems like an annual ritual); reading (Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man is my present book); concertizing (last week saw William Brittelle's wonderful Television Landscape CD release concert at Le Poisson Rouge); working on www.numinousmusic.com website revision and planning the next Numinous performance of Vipassana (Wednesday September 22 at 8pm at the Brooklyn Lyceum; organizing the next project of Pulse (myself, Darcy James Argue, Jamie Begian, JC Sanford, Joshua Shneider, and Yumiko Sunami) which is a collaboration with the Take Dance Company called The Distance of the Moon (those of you who are fans of Italio Calvino's phantasmagorical 1965 book Cosmicomics will recognize the title as the first chapter of the book; it is also the title of my entry to the project); as well as planning future projects and compositions, including more of my other dance project with Edisa Weeks and Delirious Dances, To Begin the World Over Again which is set for a two-week run in June 2011 at Irondale Center in Brooklyn; visiting with friends; and of course, I'm finding that, to reference one of my recent tweets, this summer is becoming my much needed Rocky IV, back to the basics training to get back my 'eye of the tiger.'
