It's been a very busy year already, with another new song, "Super Blue Blood Moon," and a new collaboration with Amanda Palmer -- a string tribute to the extraordinary Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries.
Starting off the new year with a new song ("Reminder"), a collaboration with Eliza Rickman covering The Mountain Goats ("Riches & Wonders"), two new 7" vinyl singles in the shop, a project announcement and a couple live dates!
Come see me with Devendra Banhart in Cologne for Week-end Fest next week, and with Amanda Palmer at Union Chapel in London next month. You can also check out a new release by Mirah, featuring string arrangements by yours truly, and an upcoming 7" single collaboration with Robert Forster of The Go Betweens.
I am finally able and epically proud to announce - I am the Music Director and Arranger for Robert Wilson's new production, Sandman, an adaptation of ETA Hoffmann's classic tale. I am working, once again, with the ultra-talented Anna Calvi, who has written an all new suite of incredible songs.
I am back in Europe playing a few shows with string quartet (dates below), and also final rehearsals for a new production I scored by Theater Basel. — an adaptation of the beloved children’s classic by Erich Kästner — Das Fliegende Klassenzimmer (The Flying Classroom). The play premieres December 1st, and will run through January 15th, so if you happen to be in and around Basel, Switzerland at that time, come check it out
As part of the Cistern project, I have also been working on a long form video for the entire record comprised of eight separate videos that tie together seamlessly, and are edited into one epic journey for the title-track "Cistern."
