Psyched to digitally release this track from a live performance in early May 2013. This is a representation of solo material that I’ve been developing for a little over a year, focusing specifically on objects and electronics integrated with snare drum and, in the case of this particular performance, a more traditional drum kit setup with toms and a kick drum.
In September of this past year, guitarist and fellow Sweat Lodge member Joe White and I came together to compose music for a Rady&Bloom Collective Playmaking production called Lameness of a Horse. This was the birth of UPTOWN GIRLS. Since then we’ve been hard at work to develop a bizarre amalgamation of electronic, acoustic, and object-based music that fluidly shifts through a variety of aesthetics, and the music for Lameness of a Horse is the core of the UG vibe.
It has been accepted into The Brick Theater Sound Scape Festival, and we’ll be enjoying a 4-show run in late June. See UPCOMING EVENTS for details.
June has been an out-of-control-busy month, and I’ve spent some time behind a snare drum with a handful of marbles and electronic devices. Here’s a brief clip of some results.
So it only took me like three years but I have a website now.
