Genus, the ballet by Wayne McGregor that Joby Talbot and I scored for the Paris Opera Ballet is coming to the National Ballet in Toronto March 29—April 2, 2017. I'm proud of this piece. Please come if you can.
Today, I am proud to announce a project that has been a long time in the making. It is a multi-disiplinary record label full of musicians, visual artists, and creative coders. It’s called “79Ancestors”, or “79A”, and it’s a partnership between Anthony Ciannamea (Effixx), Yaniv DeRidder (YNV), and myself. Our first project is a compilation that ships with a VR viewer and mobile app where we’ll host a series of audiovisual interpretations of the music, featuring some artists on our roster, as well as some old friends. Please take a look, spread it around, and let us know what you think. Many thanks.
Still basking in the afterglow from our show at The Ace Theatre. Thank you for packing the house and making it feel so incredible in there Los Angeles. It felt like a magical night. All the love.

Someone set the entire album to some amazingly beautiful old footage... I am floored.
The waves are captivating... Like beautiful explosions.
“1979: Remixed” has been released!
It features 5 songs from the original album remixed by myself, and a cover of an old 1900’s Vaudeville song, “Shine on Harvest Moon”, for which I recorded a barber shop quartet and then highly manipulated the results (it also features Jeremy Zuckerman on slide guitar).
I always wanted these songs to be an extension of the original album, a compendium. They are intended to expand the story of “1979” and offer a different perspective on the original ideas… I just had a bit more to say.
I hope you enjoy.
New York, we’re bringing “1979” to BRIC on March 26th along with the super talented Hannah Epperson. The BRIC House Ballroom in Brooklyn should be an amazing setting for the show. We’re pumped. See you soon.
