Hamilton Prize Scholarship

i’m excited to be on the selection committee for Wesleyan University’s Hamilton Prize scholarship with other great Wes alums (including Lin-Manuel Miranda himself).

a lot of my musical direction was deeply rooted in the things i learned in my classes there. i studied performance art and experimental music with some of the greatest thinkers of the 1960s and 70s….i was introduced to music i’d never encountered before: John Cage, Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, and discovered theatrical innovators like Anna Deveare Smith and Robert Wilson. i’m so excited to be able to help usher in a new crop of forward-thinking art warriors to the stages and basement-practice-rooms of a place like Wesleyan.

...i borrowed the above phrase from my friend maria popova's blog (http://www.brainpickings.org - it's awesome)...i think the phrase pretty much explains itself. i put a lot of time and effort into this blog and want you to have it and read it for free. if you want to give me some help for the time and effort, THANK YOU. you can either kick me back directly through paypal using the button below, or if you want to take some MUSIC TOO (even better, yay!) go to the store section and kick me back through paying what you want for an album or a song.
