Greetings and Happy New Year to you all from Berlin, where I'm composer in residence at The American Academy in Berlin for the next 5 months. For those of you interested, you can read about all the 2013 Fellows here, as well as learn more about the AABerlin: http://www.americanacademy.de/home/fellows/current-fellows . Right now I'm getting ready for my concert in the Maerz Musik Festival, which takes place on March 18 and will feature a new work called "Spiral Network", which is the second piece in the cycle of works about Buckminster Fuller.
But now the main reason for this message, which is to let you know that you can download an Mp4 video version of "9 Chains (Buckminster Fuller in Philadelphia)" using this link:
NOTE: The link is only active until February 1, so please get the film downloaded as soon as possible. The file is over 1 GB, so the download will take a while on most home ISP systems. If you experience difficulties please let me know.
Nick Lerman and I hope you enjoy seeing this film and hearing the music! Stay tuned for further news about presentations of "9 Chains..." and "Spiral Network". You can also follow me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/soundfield7 and at my new website: http://genecolemancomposer.com (still a bit in progress). Please also see Nick's website, where you can see his amazing photography and more: http://nicklerman.com/
That's all for now from a very chilly Berlin! Many thanks to all of you for your support!
