My old band’s ‘02 release is online…
For better of for worse.
West Coast Techno Pop at its Finest*.
Now available on iTunes, Amazon mp3, CDBaby and Spotify
*-Not at its finest recording quality. This was recorded in basements, raves, garages and on assorted stages back in 2001-2002, those were strange confusing days. I’m surprised we made it out, even more surprised any of the music made it out.
PS. Do not disturb the sexy.
Been waiting to share this track with it’s DanceTrance LoveNectar Grooviness for a while.

Portland Monthly and Art Institute’s Eden Dawn Reviews the show!
I was lucky enough to be asked back to serve as Music director for the Art Institute of Portland’s “Dressing Rooms” Fashion show. Act 1 had designs inspired by various neighborhoods in Portland. In between each scene I was able to create some soundscapes with found sounds from each neighborhood. Also for the first time in the 6 years I’ve been doing this show we were able to break new ground by incorporating live musicians into different parts of the show. Banjo Master Max Skewes was kind enough to write an original piece of music for the show, which he performed live on the runway.
For those interested here is the track listing for the show.
