THE TIME HAS COME!! Our Kickstarter campaign has been launched!
After the successful debut concerts last fall, I felt the next step
was to professionally record the B’shnorkestra and the 8 new works
This month we are regrouping for a rehearsal and recording intensive.
We will be recording this music at Bear Creek Studios, an amazing
studio with a diverse track record from everything to Blond Redhead to
Bill Frisell to Eric Clapton to Ginger Baker. We are doing intensive
rehearsals so that we can record live at the studio (with maybe a few
overdubs) to preserve the crucial groove and spontaneity of live
performance. After the recording session we will be playing a concert at
Royal Room (in Seattle).
Kickstarter funds will be used to pay the musicians for their time.
These are some amazing professional musicians – Joshua Kohl
(conductor), Jherek Bischoff, Alex Guy, Brianna Atwell, Lalo Bello, Greg
Campbell, Tim Carey, Chris Credit, Adam Kozie, Daniel Mullikin, Maria
Scherer Wilson, Tobi Stone, Alina To with guest artists Paris Hurley and
These musicians play with a variety of musicians and ensembles
including; the Degenerate Art Ensemble, Jim Knapp and Eyvind Kang’s
Scrape, Reptet, Seattle Modern Orchestra, Seattle Repertory Jazz
Orchestra, Picoso, Jovino Santos-Neto Trio, Seattle Rock Orchestra,
Wayne Horvitz, Macklemore, the Passenger String Quartet, Trans Siberian
Orchestra, Bill Smith, and Stuart Dempster.
I’ve compiled a great list of rewards for funding this project. You
can think of it as a pre-order for the record and concert, or as an
oppurtunity to acquire some items that are only available here.
Whatever you do, know that you will be supporting incredible musicians
on a quest to record new and original music – we can’t do this without
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
