Things I've been doing

Had a great weekend of gigs in Houston and Salado. Big thanks to everyone who came out. After the concert on Friday, I’m itching to do more. Just a reminder that if you’d like to book house concerts, it’s easy and (basically) free. Contact me if you want more info, or go back thru the archives of the blog to find instructions.

In the “my job is so fun and weird” category, I give you this:

My good pals Andrew Kilzer (who is also an amazing sports photog) and Michael Steele (who is also an amazing drummer/musician) asked me to compose some music for a corporate promo that they created for Northcutt Media. For context, Northcutt Media works with companies like TexAgs to provide quality advertising. They are cutting edge and brilliant, and they hired Michael and Andrew to help create an extended “commercial” that they could show to potential clients. Anyway, I composed and recorded the music, which you will hear throughout the video. This sort of thing isn’t my primary skill area, but I’m excited about how it turned out. Check it.

For more context, this is Michael's first major flash/video/cartoon project, and this was Andrew's first time to write this kind of copy and do voice-over. I mean, all of us were kind of "winging it," and somehow it still turned out super-cool. At least I think so.

Anyway, enjoy. Mainly I just wanted you to hear the music I did. As I get more and more into instrumental work and composition, I like to share with you folks. If anybody wants the music track, I'd be glad to send it for free. Just email me.

Also, I’m working on a recap of my recent Nashville trip. Hopefully I’ll have it up this week.

Finally, I’ll be posting some more concert/gig dates within the next few days. Be looking for those.

Nice job. Very google-esque ad. I'd trade the cigarettes at the pub table for some stogies though...
