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.

  1. 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.
  2. The second was similar and took place in Glen's living room. The works commented on domesticity, safety, and togetherness.
  3. 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.
