Hello world (wide web)! Welcome to elliotcless.com! I am so excited to have this site up and running. You'll find information about my creative endeavors, including my featured catalogue of works (coming soon: writings, both music analysis and excerpted journals). Listen, learn, and LOVE, if you are so moved. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions, feedback, and especially if you are interested in performing one of my works!




Work-in-progress showings today and Friday 4/1 of excerpts from "FloatBrilliance" by dropshift dance. Luke Gullickson and I are collaborating on an original score that is emerging out of and intertwining with Andrea Cerniglia's choreography. I'm relishing the opportunity to improvise on violin in rehearsals, refine at home, and help build the folksy, drone-y, noisy, multi-layered soundscape with Luke. Here's a couple of short excerpts from Sunday's showing at Dovetail Studios:

The complete "FloatBrilliance" with dance, music, video projections, and stage design, runs June 17-19 at Links Hall in Chicago. Also, please consider chipping in a few $'s to help fund this ambitious project!
