Memphis: Premiere of Buddha Body and arrangements for Don Lifted at Crosstown Continuum Festival

Memphis' Blueshift Ensemble will be premiering my Buddha Body, a three-movement expansion of last year's Dharmakaya, commissioned by Crosstown Arts. I'm also creating arrangements for Blueshift to accompany a set by Don Lifted, who is creating visuals for the whole concert.

All of this is part of the first annual Continuum Festival at Crosstown Arts. Details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1735452636754766/
