• A 2015 Summary

    Thus far...
    - A collector purchased my very first painting, Red #1. Hard to let go.
    - Traveled to Belize.
    - In March, I released a collection of Chez Stadium tunes recorded over the last few years. Further Ado is available at http://chezstadium.bandcamp.com, where I am also launching a subscription service for those who want to hear and support new Chez Stadium music.
    - With footage from the Belize trip, I made a minimalist music video for a Further Ado track.
    - My identity systems for OAAOM and To The Point PDX were approved and unveiled. At my day job, we launched the website I designed and for which I developed content and a streamlined navigational structure. A BIG collaborative effort that is ongoing.
    - I composed a musical motif for a short promotional video for my college’s recruitment initiatives.
    - No public performances on the horizon. However, I am amping up my recording and mixing skills at home. I plan to release new material — demos, instrumentals, experiments, completed tracks — via the aforementioned subscription service on my Chez Stadium Bandcamp page. (Update: I’ve released the single track, “Undisciplined” -- more to come!)

  • Website Updated!

    A rare November snow day (?) has allowed time to refresh this site. Find some new additions in the Music gallery!

    The last few months have been a whirlwind of activity, though much of it involved a house sale and severe (and necessary) downsizing. I've been able to create a small studio space in our new residence, so with luck, I'll be posting new samples in the near future.

    Go make something.
