summer 2013 news
It's been a crazy year, with many exciting developments on the horizon! At the moment, I'm involved with three live performance projects, my solo experimental electronic project as "sroM", and two metal projects with Shroud of Bereavement and Helsott (vocals/keyboards/arrangements).
I spent much of the past spring on the road, touring with Helsott as part of Paganfest America (with Ensiferum/Tyr/Heidevolk/Trollfest) - it was an honor to share the stage all over North America with so many talented musicians. This fall, I'll be on the road with Shroud of Bereavement. We currently have dates scheduled in southern California, Arizona and Colorado (Denver Doom Fest III). Details, including ticketing information, can be found here on our website. I'm spending much of the summer in preparation for the tour, and am hard at work in the studio on the new Shroud of Bereavement album, titled "A Beautiful Winter;" I'm recording all of the piano, vocal and synth tracks, along with assisting with mixing and production in general.
As sroM, I've performed in several solo shows and as part of a duo with Jason Robinson. I released the first sroM album, "one," last fall on accretions records. It is currently available as a digital download on my bandcamp page, and also as a vinyl release on 180 gram, audiofile quality vinyl (contact me for details). For a sample of my live performance as sroM, you can preview on the player below.
In terms of teaching, I'll be working as an adjunct/visiting lecturer at Amherst College in the spring in both the music and theatre departments, teaching courses on sound design and electronic music. I've stepped down from my full-time position at San Diego City College to pursue freelance music performance/production on a full-time basis.
