My most recent album, Prism, has gathered some nice reviews. Tim Rutherford-Johnson writes about it here. It also appeared on a few playlists: Steve Smith (Boston Globe) and Alex Ross (The New Yorker). You can stream the whole thing on Populist Records’s bandcamp page or buy physical copies directly from them.
In performance news, I’m excited to become a small part of The Industry’s new opera, Hopscotch. I did a little recording work for one of Andrew McIntosh’s pieces, but now I’ll also be a part of the finale playing the bass. It’s a bit shrouded in mystery at this point, but the LA Times have a little write up online.
Loadbang has just released a new album on New Focus Recordings featuring music by Alex Mincek, David Brynjar Franzson, Reiko Fueting, Alexandre Lunsqui, and William Lang along with my piece Infinitive. You can listen to samples and get links to buy it from New Focus’s website.
Finally, I was the recording engineer for the newest Populist Records release, Matt Barbier’s album Face|Resection. An entire album of solo acoustic trombone music that sounds neither solo, nor acoustic, nor like a trombone.
Thanks to everyone who made it to my CD release concert in LA last night. It was so great to play some music for you. My tour kicks off on Friday, August 14th, the same day as the official release of my album Prism.

I’m very excited about my upcoming release on Populist Records, Prism. It features my music for double bass and electronics and double bass ensemble. If you’d like to hear samples of all the tracks and pre-order the album click over to this page.
There are straight pre-orders of both digital and CD versions as well as some crowdfunding-campaign-style perks for other amounts higher than just the cost of the CD and shipping.
I’ve posted the recording of my recent wandelweiser bass concert over on bandcamp.

On Thursday, May 7th, I’ll be doing the first performance of my piece Space Administration. Here’s a facebook event, if you’re into that sort of thing. Here’s the event page on this site.
And, finally, here’s a video excerpt to (hopefully) get you excited.
