Today marks the long awaited release of the 24HR Records episode, Tripple!
I took part in being “locked up” in a studio with musicians I’d never worked with in order to write & fully record 3 songs within a 24hr time span. I was in good company with Juan Solorzano (of Night Beds) and Justin Tam (of Humming House). It was crazy and SO much fun! Feel free to check out the episode here.
Below is a link to the 3 separate music videos that coincide with the songs:
All 3 songs are on Spotify, iTunes, etc. So feel free to download anything you like!
In other news, the avant-garde chamber orchestra, CHATTERBIRD will be premiering my piece for chamber ensemble entitled MINOR-BORN.This is a very ambitious piece that I spent January through March of this year composing, and I can’t wait to hear it fully-realized come May 30, 2015! The program boasts a stunning collection of other works by composers relevant to our place in time. If you’re in the Nashville area, check the link below for performance details:
The frightful and well-crafted anthology of horror tales that director Brent Sims has put together in this 14-minute short film is now out and ready for your Halloween viewing pleasure! Brent asked me to record a version of Henry Hall’s 1932 song Teddy Bear Picnic for the film. About 4 minutes into the short at “chapter 2″ you can catch my rendition. The project was fun and the film turned out great!
