By far the most prestigious event I am associated with is Tuesdays @ Monk Space. I currently hold the title of assistant director and help with social media, coordination and miscellaneous things. I have helped curate one show, bringing in the CSULB Laptop Ensemble to perform.
I also used to curate for a few concerts around Long Beach.
Concerts. by glen and zaq was a collaborative effort with my friend and colleague Glen Gray. We only threw three shows unfortunately.
- The first -filipendulous, was on campus at CSULB and featured students from the composition department, sculpture department, and dance department. The work was selected to comment on tenuousness, softness, and delicateness.
- The second was similar and took place in Glen's living room. The works commented on domesticity, safety, and togetherness.
- The last -for Morton Feldman, took place in my backyard. We served tea and played a field recording based sound score that shared the structure of Morton Feldman's piano piece For Burita Marcus. It also featured dance, lights, and text.
ConVoke: a late night concert series was an open cabaret type show held at midnight in the Daniel recital hall at CSULB. I took over with a team after Justin Scheid and Ed Park left for grad school. curation was more slap happy and a mixed bag, but the shows were a ton of fun. I ran about 12 of these concerts.
