Congratulations Philip.


I’ll be performing live with J. Walter Hawkes at the second annual Long Island City Arts Open on May 18. Walter is a fellow composer who has done great, Emmy Award winning work in cartoons. He plays trombone and ukulele, I’ll be on guitar and we’ll be performing duets that will also feature the unique and unpredictable world of vintage electronics.

Live Music

I’ll be playing at the Ten 10 Studios in Long Island City on 1/28/12 with fellow composer J. Walter Hawkes. The music will feature selections from New Sounds From The Lost And Found. It’s a decompression session.

Web store in the works

I’m putting together a new web store where new and old recordings will be available [New Sounds From The Lost And Found Volumes 5 and 4 are available now].

The New Sounds From The Lost And Found is a series of ambient recordings made using instruments either found on the street or salvaged from thrift stores, pawn shops, and yard sales. The first keyboard I found was a Yamaha Electone from 1971. I later found a CAT synthesizer, made in Long Island City, and most recently found a set of maracas. These instruments each have their own unique personalities and idiosyncrasies and are all part of the mix.
