A lot of my work involves audio as a creative component of the music (such as in Dust and Kecow hit tamen). For other projects, like my score for Virgil Cantini: the Artist in Public, I handled all of the production myself—from writing the score to mastering the final audio mix-down. Over the years I’ve put together a studio that would allow me to achieve my creative and technical goals, and before long other people began to ask me to record their music as well. I really enjoy working with audio and more importantly, the people I work with appreciate the work I do for them. If you’re in the Pittsburgh area and have a project you’d like to record, I’d love to talk with you about it. I can accommodate a small group in my home studio and can also record up to 26 channels on location.
The following audio samples are from recent projects and show a variety of styles. I’m grateful to the performers for permission to share their work with you.
