Today in my basement studio I again experimented with the AudioKit L7 looper app, but this time I took a 17th century Passacaglia from the Rosary Sonata by H.I.F. Biber, and made it my own!
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: $12||Gold Level: $30||Diamond 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!
I don’t know if you happened to catch a glimpse of a certain Super Bowl promotional video that aired about an hour and a half before the start of the game. But if you did, you might have caught a glimpse of me playing with the CMG Music Recording orchestra on site at Warner Bros. Studio, at the famous Eastwood Scoring Stage, where all the famous composers of the Golden Age of film recorded their music!
It was a unique experience and I am so honored to have been asked to participate. 🙂
Check out the full video below, and enjoy not only the video screenshots but a few backstage shots as well!
As I’ve mentioned briefly before, I have a new EP in the works! It should be available in just another week or two.
For now, please enjoy these clips from three (out of four total) tracks that will be appearing on the new EP – SONATA MODERNA!
This past Spring semester at The Master’s College, I’ve had the immense honor of helping out one of our audio tech seniors finish his major senior project – to record, produce, edit, master, etc., fifteen minutes of music!
So, he’s been dutifully and expertly bringing to life three very diverse works of mine: “Sonata Moderna” (the original version I first wrote: for string trio and full-on rock band! I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to hear it unfolding to the original fullness I envisioned for it!); “Organic Circuitry” for electro-acoustic string quartet; and my latest work, “Intrepid,” for oboe/english horn soloist and chamber orchestra.
Now that we’re nearing the end of this journey, these three tracks are sounding just AMAZING! I can’t wait to share them with all of you! In the meantime, enjoy some of these memories from a few of our sessions together…
Tonight starts the long-anticipated two-day recording session for my musical responses to THE BOOK OF I!
Many eternal thanks to the nearly 30 musicians and recording engineers who have volunteered their time to make this recording possible. I am so looking forward to working with you tonight and tomorrow to make beautiful modern music come alive! <3
Stay tuned for more news and media from this awesome shindig!

Woohoo!! We’re beginning talks to hammer out specific details on the recording and production side of my soundtrack for THE BOOK OF I project; it’s looking to be a blast of an opportunity!… Which means I have a “drop dead” deadline now to complete the writing of everything…. A solid two more months to finish composing approx 30-45 minutes more of music…no prob!…. 😛
