and A LOT of this...

Recording has become a new process for me this summer (very 21st Century). I have been working on a new album with Brice Malahude who lives in Brussels. I met him two years ago through video artist, collaborator and friend, Laia Cabrera. Brice and I have been sharing audio files over the internet and skyping regularly. The amazing thing - is that it is working really well. I have reached out to a number of other musicians who have also been collaborating with us this way, including: Nathan Larson (NYC), Shahzad Ismaily (always en route), Submerged (Brooklyn), Jarno Van Es (Tillburg, NL) and Pat Harris (Australia). Others that have been contributing, but in real time include: Joel Hamilton, Rohin Khemani, Jared Engel, Leron Thomas, Dan Neustadt, Christopher Hoffman and Dave Burnett. A couple of tunes will be posted soon for streaming. We are hoping to have the record done early November. Thank you to everyone who has been so generous with their time, energy and creativity.

Rohin again. I call this Gamelon Degrocery (not Degung).

This beautiful microphone (thank you Joel) has been a joy to record with.

Leron Thomas playing trumpet on The Animal.

Christopher Hoffman on cello.

Dan Neustadt on piano and synth.

Dave Burnett kicked out 7 songs in like 5 hours. We were so busy tracking I forgot to get a picture of him playing the drums....

Aaron Nevezie (Bunker Studios) captured Dave, Christopher and Leron beautifully!

Brice - or what I now know of him to be - rectangular - at the Bunker.
