Greetings and Happy New Year!

I hope this message finds you all well and and at ease. Now that January is in full swing and my schedule has lightened, I will come back to updating this site and keeping you all abreast as to what is going on. As it is, I do have some rather happy news to tell you, so on with the info.

Earl Maneein-violinist and founder of the bands Resolution 15 & Seven)Suns– and I have been working on a new project together that we call, “Black Heart Sutra”, a group that exists well within the bounds of Metal, but is a place where Earl and I can explore our writing and improvisatory impulses, a medium for us to keep composing together. As of this week, we begun reworking one of the first songs that we wrote together under the new moniker titled, “The Transitioning”. I made a quick behind the scenes video of our session earlier this week documenting our new ideas for the song and making plenty of adolescent jokes.

I’m sure as some of you can see, Resolution 15 was Successful in it’s kickstarter campaign! To those of you who supported this effort, you have my humblest thanks. I’ve been slated to start recording the drum tracks at the end of this month with Stacy O’Dell at Spin Studios. It will be my first time recording in Greenpoint, but I’m sure the end result will be quite epic.

In keeping with recording news, I have recently received a mastered copy of Shanir Blumenkranz’s upcoming album for his new group, ABRAXAS, featuring the music of John Zorn’s Book of Angels! It’s been a huge honor to be part of this project and I have to say, it was quite fun playing blast beats, bayons, funk, weird sounds, and all the added Moroccan vibes to this music. Look for the album to come out sometime later this year in leu of our upcoming performance at the Marciac Music Festival! (more…)
