Tiny Desk Contest!
Please check out my #tinydesk Entry “Rimum” which is ancient Akkadian for Wild Bull.
I think you can hear him galloping a bit!
So thrilled to record this with Missy Raines and Kris Karlson.
I am using #abletonlive with the #looper plugin controlled by internal midi triggers so #handsfree!
I record into #ableton as I play through the first three times looping each take. Then I take a solo over that and mix the #oboe loops live during the rest of the song.
Please give it a like on youtube!

ConCentrics 3.0 at the Adventure Science Center
A newly expanded version of my Wii remote drawing composition is at Nashville’s Adventure Science Center through May 13.
I developed the code to include 4 remotes instead of the usual 2 and there is now an option to fill in the circles and square animations. I am liking the improvements!
