Just had the urge to update this blog and realized it’s been exactly a year…here’s what I’ve been up to:
I scored and sound designed this hour-long radio piece on the poet Franz Wright, produced by Bianca Giaever and Jay Allison:
I’m no longer playing with The Westerlies, but a few last things I was involved in came out:
– this in-studio performance with Theo Bleckmann
– this in-studio performance with Kate Davis
– we played on this track by Samora Pinderhughes and Common, from the soundtrack to the film The Tale
– we played on a few tracks from the new Nick Murphy (formerly Chet Faker) album. I have a bit of a featured flugelhorn part at the top of this song:
I put out a music video for my twig twig song Only One:
I reunited with my pals in Half Waif for a Tiny Desk concert last fall:
I made music for this New York Times doc about antibiotics:
I made an album called The Only Thing with the brilliant band Thelma. This was a big project: I produced, engineered, played a bunch of instruments, and mixed. Working with them was incredible and I’m really proud of this record…here’s the album and some music videos:
I recorded this album by improvising trio Sound Underground:
I helped Renata Zieguer put together this EP of covers and original songs. We worked on reimagining her song Gravity, taken from her last album. She played all the instruments on this, quite wonderfully.
I made an EP with Belgian vocalist/composer Charlotte Jacobs. This is another big engineering/playing instruments/mixing project…Charlotte is wonderful and I can’t wait to share the full thing. The first single is out with this wonderful music video:
I made the intro song to new podcast None of the Above, a political show from Mark Hannah about why the military should be way way way way smaller.
Ok I think that’s it! Gonna try to keep this more updated, lots of other fun projects nearing completion. Hope you’re doing well.
