In case you missed it, I played the music of Cistern in the middle of a little ol' place called Times Square back in August. Here's a little video that captured the incredible experience that it was. You can even watch an interactive 360° video of the performance. Special thanks to the super talented musicians from Contemporaneous for bringing the tunes to life on electronic instruments, and to Times Square Arts for the unforgettable opportunity.
You can now also watch the David Bowie tribute from TED Talks Vancouver earlier this year. Amanda Palmer and I played our version of "Space Oddity" with Usman Riaz on guitar, Paris Hurley on violin, Alina To on violin, Alex Guy on Viola, Maria Scherer Wilson on cello, and former VP Al Gore on the countdown!

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), adapted by Daniela Kranz and Sabrina Hofer.
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!
To round out the year, I'll be playing a couple shows with my dear friends Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley in Florida, one in Fort Lauderdale, and one TBA. There may also be an addition before the year is out, so be sure to keep an eye on my Twitter and Facebook for announcements.
