New Track Coming Soon!

Coming soon, and available now for Backstage SupportersHope Unfolding!

Inspired by the pandemic quarantine of 2020, this improvised work is an expression of relentless hope unleashed upon the world. On a day of feeling “cooped up” I was simply inspired to create this electronic backdrop of voices and texture, and the next day I pulled out my fiddle and enjoyed freely jamming around to this track.

Look for it April 10!

The Skinny on Backstage Supporter-ship

What with the news of Bandcamp’s efforts to support artists during this pandemic, I suddenly realized that I never did explicitly explain what it means to be a Backstage Supporter on Bandcamp. *oops!*

So here are details: For the cost of only one CD you can receive all of my work throughout the year, ahead of everybody else, and take advantage of subscriber-only music! On top of that, you’ll be supporting local musicians and the quality of my craft in a way that you can hear.

There are three levels of Supporter you can choose from:

Basic: $12Gold Level: $30Diamond Level: $75
All new releases, the back-catalog items listed, any material I release as backstage-only, and access to my fan community (backstage-only messages and photos).All that’s included in Basic, plus: I’ll not only list your name in the album notes as a sponsor for all new releases you are a part of, but I’ll also send you an autographed copy of the newest albums you support for free!All that’s included in Basic and Gold, plus: I’ll send you an autographed copy of one major score of the music featured in the latest album releases you support.

Learn more about what it’s like to make music happen in our day and age in the video below, and consider becoming a Supporter if you can!

Score Work for “I Spy a Foodie”

This past August I finished an original score for a dark-humor short (based on a true story, no less!) called I Spy a Foodie. It was a very enlightening learning experience and a really fun project to work on! I pulled out some new gadgets and tried new ideas for it (I’m so thrilled I got to use this amazing free app for a lot of my sounds), and I’m so happy with how the whole score turned out!

On top of that, I’ve just learned that my score is nominated for the Roger Taylor Award for Best Score for a short film at the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema!! I’m so thrilled!

Enjoy the original soundtrack below…

Overtones, Harmonics, Monochords, Oh My!

I finally put up a video this weekend, demonstrating DIY monochords and overtones. I started demonstrating the monochord in class last semester, using an old one handmade in our department, but this semester I wanted to try building my own. ^_^

Enjoy this short compilation video demonstrating both monochords and introducing the concept of the harmonic series

My Dark Glass Sinfonia for symphony orchestra is the second track on this amazing album, coming out soon from Navona Records. And you can pre-order it now! 🙂
