Singles Released as Producer/Remixer

This track is a “mash-up,” a sound collage of two different songs: an a cappella of local artist/composer Andy Happel with a well-known song by the Police.
A remix of a song by a local songwriter, Kate Schrock. As part of a multi-year partnership, I edited this song from its original 6/8 time ballad to a straight-ahead dance pop track

 

Mixes Released as DJ/Music Curator

A mixtape, a curated and stylized DJ mix of music prepared to promote the “Four Seasons in a Day” Fashion Show at MECA. This corresponded with my live DJ set I performed to accompany the runway show.

Multimedia Live Performance

A video trailer/teaser of the “Nanook” show by the Sumner McKane Group. Sumner McKane, Josh Robbins, and I were asked to compose a score to the silent film “Nanook of the North” by One Longfellow Square, the West End arts venue in Portland in 2007. Since then, we’ve recorded a version of the score, toured the show around the region, and gotten substantial airplay from NPR’s “Echoes” program.
