A Crimson Grail

I am very, very excited to be a part of the 200 electric guitar (and 16 electric basses!) orchestra that will perform Rhys Chatham's A Crimson Grail August 15 at Lincoln Center. Here's the official words:

Composer Rhys Chatham and section leaders John King, Ned Sublette, David Daniell, and Seth Olinsky (Akron/Family) lead an oversized orchestra of 200 volunteer guitarists and electric bassists in the world premiere of A Crimson Grail for 200 Electric Guitars (Outdoor Version) performed on on the Bandshell stage but along the sides of the audience at Damrosch Park, to heighten the work's polyphonic effect. The work, originally composed for Paris' famed Sacre-Coeur, has been extensively revised to suit the dynamics of the Park's outdoor acoustic.

I'll be the one playing a sparkly gold Gretsch.
