current projects & collaborations

DILIGENCE IS TO MAGIC AS PROGRESS IS TO FLIGHT
Developed in collaboration with violinist Austin Wulliman, Diligence Is to Magic as Progress Is to Flight comprises six solo pieces using prepared insruments, electronics, and chamber orchestra. These are presented as part of an eight-channel installation built of recorded sounds from these six pieces. The performance space is further animated by a sound sculpture that uses an orange construction-site cone as a resonator, headphone listening stations, construction signage & gravel sculptures, and video projection. - - - - parlourtapes.bandcamp.com and newmusicbox.org

SOLO
Katherine Young’s debut bassoon record, Further Secret Origins was released on Porter Records in November 2009. The record garnered praise in The Wire (“Bassoon colossus”) Downbeat ("seriously bold leaps for the bassoon"), and elsewhere. Katherine performs regularly as a soloist, using amplification and pedals to enhance the acoustic power of the bassoon, bring out interior resonances, and create monolithic soundscapes. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - porterrecords.com
