Craig Shepard presents...

Craig Shepard (trombone, kalimba, bottles) presents music from ON FOOT: BROOKLYN. From February 21 to May 21, 2012, he got everywhere he went on foot. Each week, he composed a new piece of music and wrote it down. Every Sunday, he led a silent, cell-phone free walk to a different location in Brooklyn and performed the new piece in an outdoor public space. Compositions were named for the date and location of the first performance.

On Foot: Brooklyn has been featured at Presents Gallery Brooklyn, the Kunstraum Düsseldorf, Spectrum NYC, WORD Books Brooklyn, Cornell University, Middlebury College, and in Pauline Oliveros' Deep Listening Class at RPI.

A CD featuring music from the project was released in August on Edition Wandelweiser Records, distributed by erstwhile in the USA.

Craig Shepard is member of the Wandelweiser Composers Ensemble. He has realized a 250-mile walking tour across Switzerland, a 21-day live-installation at a Zurich commuter hub, and a one-hour live installation of 18 trumpets on the shores of Lake Zurich. His work has been performed at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Experimental Intermedia New York, the Akademie der Künste Berlin, Kunstraum Düsseldorf, among others. His teachers include Frank Crisafulli (trombone), Ulrich Eichenberger (sacbut), Corrado Bossard (trumpet), as well as Amnon Wolman, Alan Stout, and Michael Pisaro (composition). His work has been published by Edition Howeg, the Schweizerische Musikzeitung, Antennae and Edition Wandelweiser. He lives in Brooklyn.
