Wired and Woodpeckers

Hello Everyone,

The cello and I have a few things we'd like to tell you about....


A few weeks ago Dylan Tweney, the Wired "Gadget Lab" editor, and a video crew, made the windy trek up to my forest studio north of San Francisco. We talked about composition and information architecture and I played a few songs. The result was captured in these THREE videos now up on the Wired website.

Here they are


You've heard me talk about Scott Crocker's film "Ghost Bird" that I wrote music for last year. Well, the official world premier is happening this week at the Toronto Hot Docs Festival. "Ghost Bird" will be screening Wed May 6th and Friday May 8th. I realize most of you are not in Toronto, so, for your listening pleasure, here is some of the never-before-released music that I made for the film

And, for those of you in Toronto: screening info


And lastly, tickets are onsale for my performance on June 4th at the Great American Music Hall. I'll be sharing a bill with Amy X Neuberg and her cello chiXtet for her CD release party. So yes, a cello extravaganza!

Tickets here

Ok, sorry to be so brief.....back to work with me....(on that album I won't even talk about until its DONE)

Thank you very much!

Celloly yours,

Is there going to be a soundtrack on sale for Ghostbird? I absolutely freaking adore the snippets that you put up.

I am hoping my wife and I can make the trek down from Red Bluff to see you on June 4th.

We still have 1 week of teaching left so the night of no sleep is kind of a killer.

I love "Escape Artist".
It does bring to mind Nyman's music for "The Draughtman's Contract" at times.

I've just discovered your music...thanks to the blog Easy Bake Coven. Amazingly Haunting! I so love it. I've just bought every album on iTunes and look forward to spending the afternoon listening. I'm on my local symphony board...if only we had visiting musicians such as World would be a better place!

Thanks for the update! I've only recently discovered your music through my obsession with Amanda Palmer, and you're absolutely BRILLIANT!!
