“We, Divine”

I got to score this beautiful dance video for Diablo Ballet, with choreography by Robert Dekkers and video by Walter Yamazaki. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Big Driver: score complete!

I’m delighted to announce that I’ve finished the score for Big Driver! There are just a few more steps of post-production to wrap up, and then we’ll get to sending the movie to a festival and theater near you soon!

Meanwhile, here’s a cover song that Tawnee & I recorded:



You Should Stop will be playing in SF in December

You Should Stop will be playing in SF at Another Hole in the Head on Sunday, December 15th.  I’m super excited that the film gets a festival run here in the Bay, and doubly excited that it’s poised to sell out a month and a half before it even goes up!  =D  The film was scored by me, and even includes one song by The Hangover Brigade.

Tickets are available here.



So many words, so little room…

This is going to be a long post, so bullet points are my new best friend.

Film news:

  • I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be scoring an adaptation of Stephen King’s story Big Driver this summer! I’d love it if you went and watched the pitch and trailer over on the FB page, or at BigDriverMovie.com today. In the blink of an eye, we’ve already raised over $5k, and we would love any support you could offer for a very exciting and ambitious summer project.
  • One of my previous films, You Should Stop, recently screened in SF.  I’m very proud of that film, and it was a delight to finally get to see it on the silver screen.
My band, The Hangover Brigade, has been busy as of late, too:
  • We’re playing a show Friday, April 19th at The Hotel Utah, where we’ll be debuting a couple new songs & covers.
  • Tawnee & I recently recorded a duo-version of our new sexy song, “Any Way I Can Get It”, which you can stream & download for free right here:

  • And here’s a video of the whole band doing the same song at Cafe Du Nord last year:

“Call it Off” by Tegan & Sara

“I’ve Got This Friend” by The Civil Wars

Busy couple weeks, and a new CD!

I’m playing with Tawnee Kendall & The Hangover Brigade this Saturday at Martuni’s starting at 5pm.

Second, we’ll be on Radio Valencia (87.9 FM) this Thursday, May 24, 8 PM on Baghdad by the Bay.

Most excitingly, we’ll be releasing our EP In Between Spaces at Cafe Du Nord on Saturday, May 26! We’ll be playing with Cassandra Farrar & The Left Brains, Dad’s LP’s, and Blisses B. (The day after Alma Desnuda, to boot!)

In film news, Bug Chaser is playing at Out Twin Cities Film Festival on Friday, June 1, and at FilmOut San Diego on Saturday, June 2nd.



Shooting my third short film next week

I’ll be composing the original score to another short film starting next week. This’ll be my third, and my second with director Robert Dekkers. More to come later!



“Still Around” wins a film award

Still Around, the HIV Story Project’s compilation featuring my short film “Ours” with Robert Dekkers, just won the Crystal Cactus Award for Best Feature Documentary, at the Out in the Desertfilm festival. Congratulations to all the cast and crew for the beautiful film we all made together!



Show time!

The first short film I scored, Ours is playing this Thursday, 12/01/11, at the Roxie Theater in SF @ 7pm, as part of Still Around. A number of the other filmmakers will also be there, if you’d like to join us!! Since the last time it played here in SF, it has screened in Prague, Czech Republic; Seattle; Milwaukee; and Bern, Switzerland. It’s playing tonight in Hamburg, and has upcoming screenings in South Africa, LA, Chicago, and many other places.

The more recent film, Bug Chaser, recently screened at the Dark Carnival Film Festival in Bloomington, IN, and I’m excited for more (and local) dates to start being announced.

I also recently recorded an album playing lead guitar on the amazing Tawnee Kendall‘s upcoming debut album. We’ll be playing our first show together at the Rockit Room on Saturday, Dec 17th, at 8pm as The Hangover Brigade. Come see us, and hear how awesomely we rock.



New dance project premiering this Friday

A sneak peek of my new collaboration with Post:Ballet will be showing this Friday at the 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, 5-9pm. I’ve crafted a really neat soundscape for this piece, and am excited to debut it – see you there!



Short film playing @ Frameline35

Last year, I scored a short film for the HIV Story Project’s film “Still Around”, and I just found out it’ll be having its West Coast Premiere at Frameline35 in June! I’ll be there with the cast & crew to celebrate its release, please join me!

A recent review of its World Premiere in Boston described it, saying “The best films in this outstanding anthology give us … [t]he drama, dangers, and enrichment of finding out who you are–and laying claim to it–without letting labels get in the way.”
