I’m in Australia for two months before moving back to Beijing in late August. It’s been busy working on several new projects and a presentation I’ll be giving at ANU in Canberra next month, but lovely to meet new people, hear new music, and have the time and space to write.

Movers & Makers Cincinnati named the New Concerto Project a top pick for this week’s events in Cincinnati. Read their line-up here.
Cincinnati CityBeat recently interviewed me about Cincinnati Soundbox, the New Concerto Project, and my new percussion concerto. Read more here.
I had a blast speaking with students at UC’s Carl H. Lindner College of Business earlier this week about my recent work, China, and entrepreneurism in the arts. Thanks to Dr. Charles Matthews for having me!
