Reynolds was Composer-in-Residence for Stephen Drury’s yearly epic: the Summer Institute for Contemporary Performance Practice (SICPP) at Boston’s New England Conservatory, 13-21 June 2014. Reynolds’s music was featured on evening concerts, and he worked with Festival musicians in rehearsals, met with attending composers, and performed himself Resonant Combinations by Robert Ashley. SICPP

FLiGHT, in its initial stage, and a collaboration with JACK Quartet, Videographer Ross Karre, and Computer Musician Paul Hembree, will be previewed at a joint Reynolds-JACK residency at James Madison University's 34th Contemporary Music Festival, at The Phillips Collection in Washington, and the National Gallery of Art during February and March of 2015.

During the past few years, Reynolds has been examining the thinking of Edgard Varèse on the subject of musical space
(actual and metaphoric). Reflecting intensive research at the Sacher Foundation, two extended papers have resulted.
The first of these is in the current issue of Perspectives of New Music (Volume 51, Number 1, Winter 2013):
“The Last Word Is Imagination: A Study of the Spatial Aspects of Varèse’s Work”
