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!

Rimum (the Wild Bull) from Atlanta Wed night
I re-orchestrated this and added a Baritone Sax line that I am now very attached to! Very fun playing with #4WAKO – the 4th Ward Afro-Klezmer small ensemble. We opened for #paalnilsen-love’s Large Group which was absolutely terrific!
many thanks to Unknown Vincent for his great documentation
