The LINKS Series (Live)

I’m slowly making my way through the entire LINKS Series of Vibraphone Essays: a continuous masterpiece of 11 vibe solos by the legendary Stuart Saunders Smith. Keep an ear out – I’ll be performing the entire 2-hour throwdown (from memory) before it’s all over…

Remember & Crossings (EP) Studio Sessions

Stuart and I met in June of 2007. After many years of discussing the lack of finesse and musicality in “electronic” music, we collaborated on a structure of graphic notations and electron manipulations. The result – a romp of improvisatory drumming and an iPod on shuffle. Check out the overhead cam from the studio recording with Dustin Cicero at Manhattan School of Music in 2010.
