draface2Hello fans of Squiggle T. Buglet and her Creator!  I’ve been busy at work creating the new Book, Show Workshop titled THE PHANTASTIC ZOO, which I’ll be performing in February in the company of my friend Robert Dick, who is world reknowned flautist and composer – he will be voice acting and playing tons of glorious flute music as part of the show… He will be the Dragon, the Wizard Zithoonamage body and the Living Tree!peg 8






On Squiggle News, as you know I created the new version for full orchestra this summer!  Last week I presented the work and vision to a wonderful person closely affiliated with one of our Major Orchestras! He was enthusiastic in his praise and love of the music, he thought it highly original and effective and will be putting it forth to his people!  Wish us luck! There are other leads of course!

THE WORKSHOP will be repeated as well! – Hopefully Robert can join us a couple of times!  I am meeting with a new prospective host this month!

I’ll also be presenting my work at the AES Convention at the Javits Center at the end of October!… Onwards and Upwards!
