2 million plays on YouTube on a random upload of '1979' feels like some sort of milestone this day and age. I'm happy that 3 years on this record is still being discovered.
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.

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.
