Kyle has been living in New York City since 2013 while working as a freelance percussionist and dance musician.  He has performed at MMNY (Make Music New York) and made his New York debut performing the world premier of Edo Frenkel’s There is nothing (but they) outside: 1. missa brevis at The Spectrum.  He has also worked for Larry Keigwin of Keigwin+Company at their Summer Intensive held in 2013 at The Juilliard School.  During the 2013-2014 academic year he will be serving as modern dance percussion accompanist at both Ballet Hispanico and Marymount Manhattan College in New York City.  He is also a regular member with Gallant Entertainment Inc. when they provide percussion entertainment for the New York Knicks, New York Giants, New York Jets, and the New York Rangers.

Kyle has been performing with his drumKAT regularly since 2008.  While studying at the University of Arizona he was a member of Crosstalk the worlds only entirely electronic percussion ensemble compromised almost exclusively of KAT products.   He can be seen with his drumKAT performing his arrangement of 1+1 by Philip Glass as well as Beijing by Norman Weinberg, as well as an original composition for drumKAT and Marimba titled Xylopolist.  As an electronic artist he has performed electro-acoustic landmark compositions such as Six Japanese Gardens by Kaija Saariaho, Temazcal by Javier Alvarez, Edge (Corrugated Box) by Bruce Hamilton, and his own interpretation of John Cage’s Composed Improvisation for Snare Drum alone where the snare drum is both prepared and amplified by a contact microphone.  Currently, Kyle is incorporating his drumKAT into the dance classes he accompanies and is working on performing Graham Fitkin’s Chain of Command for drumKAT.
