Recent Performances

"The National Anthem” and “You and Whose Army?” from my Radiohead Ensemble concert at Kent State University, Spring of 2016. Me and 9 of my college students on stage with only controllers. Everything you hear was created in real time, no pre-programmed tracks. Video was done using Max and features “Plastic Apocalypse, Episode 2” by Michael Akkerman. Enjoy!

My cover of "Climbing Up The Walls" by Radiohead for a faculty recital at Kent State in the Spring of 2015. My camera didn't pick up the TV very well, and I was triggering all of the video effects live, so I had to go back and perform the video mixing later and drop it into this video as a picture in picure. It's sitting where the huge TV was set up on stage, so you can still kind of get the idea of what was happening.

Everything you see and hear is being run by Ableton Live, and I was using a Numark Orbit controller to control video effects, launch and manipulate samples, and affect the guitar as well.

Berklee Music Videos

while in Spain, I took a music video class at Berklee. Almost every week we had to shoot, edit, and finish a music video. I took the chance to do some fun covers, and here are a few of my favorites:
featuring my flatmate's dog, Bowie. the coolest dog on the planet.
when you're headed to the ER in Spain with your flatmate, and you have a music video due in the morning, you film while you are in the cab, and then you throw together a song in ableton. #gradschoollife
the assignment was to do a music video with a single continuous shot, and I've always wanted to cover this song.
homework: do a "behind the scenes" video. and so I did.
