not hibernating

Looks like I’ve slipped a little with the updates to the blog. Here’s some recent happenings with me, in no particular order:

We’re hosting an in-studio concert with Dylan Taylor, Larry Coryell, & Mike Clark (from the Headhunters). There will be some serious sounds coming from the A room at this show. I’m thrilled to be producing and co-engineering the concert. More info here.

Symphony in Bossa, the record I’ve been working on for two years, will be released on Pi Day, March 14th at World Cafe Live. Minas will be joined by the Univ. of Delaware big band and strings. I’m really excited for this record to go forth into the world.

My alma mater, LVC, asked me to teach a course on Sound Design. It’s been a really fun experience so far, and I look forward to what the students come up with each week. It’s also completely online, which has been an interesting experience.

I got a call from the Wells Fargo Center the other week. After some meetings and shadowing, I can now announce that I’ll be working the music chair for the Flyers and Sixers on an occasional basis. It’s a nice facility, and certainly a different show than what I’m used to with the Union.

Last fall, I started working on a new music video for AlyCat. This one will be completely different from anything we’ve done so far (no puppets this time), and includes the talents of over a dozen guest artists. More on that soon.

I feel very fortunate to have these opportunities, and am constantly thankful to be able to do this stuff. Thanks for reading.
