Eyes Video

July 9, 2013

Hello

These photos depict the film shoot for the “Eyes” video, where I eventually got to meet one of the heroes who appeared on the album, David Byrne. The footage was put together with shots of a chamber orchestra from Seattle, you can see the awesome results in the video below.

Ladies & Gentleman of Europe and U.K… I’m coming for ya!

June 24, 2013

I am embarking yet again on a series of tours with my friend Amanda Palmer. I will be playing bass in the The Grand Theft Orchestra and will also be opening nearly all of the shows. Excitingly & terrifyingly I am continuing to put myself far outside my comfort zone, meaning in this case for the most part I will be opening these shows completely solo on bass, uke and a touch of vocals. I feel like I have a really great set of old and new material that all were written for large ensemble, boiled down to the core. I don’t plan on doing this kind of set very often, so catch it while you can! You can find all of the dates on my live page.
Also, a reminder that I have two shows of note in NY in July.
Kronos Quartet + me at Lincoln Center July 28th
Me at Le Poisson Rouge with Contemporanious, July 31st. This will be an ultra special evening with a 20 person ensemble and radical guest vocalists! Get tickets early and here!

I am back so soon! I am here to remind you that you can get Composed over at Amazon US for $5 until the 15th of May. Go get it here.

Here is another tune from my show on December 1, 2012 at The Moore Theater in Seattle. This one features a beautiful tune by Soko. Arrangement by yours truly.

 

I have some exciting news!

Ahoy Mateys!

First of all, “Composed” was chosen by Amazon US to be a part of the 100 for $5 program. So! For the next two weeks you can order “Composed” for only 5 one dollar bills! That’s like one double (vegan) mocha frappuccino with extra (vegan) whip cream for 9 songs with an entire orchestra and some of the best singers alive (in my opinion)!
Get it here.

In other news… I am currently writing a piece for Kronos Quartet!!! WHAT?!?! Yup. Lincoln Center commissioned me to write a new piece for Kronos Quartet to be played by them at Lincoln Center as part of their Out of Doors festival. The evening includes new music from Amon Tobin, Dan Deacon, Bryce Dessner and more. To top it all off, IT’S FREE! I am so insanely honored to be composing for Kronos. For a lil fella like myself, it is about as good as it gets. More details here.

For the next two weeks as this Amazon US sale is going, I am going to be posting 4 videos from my show at The Moore Theater on Dec. 1 of last year. So check back often and you can see what shenanigans we got up to.
