Friends and listeners, I’ve been quiet for a while and here’s why: I’ve been learning about the fine art and craftsmanship of piano technology and have jumped into the field with the intent of becoming a master piano technician. This will take a number of years, so I will not be touring or participating in the music industry on a professional level until this transition is complete. I recently graduated from the Randy Potter School of Piano Technology and I’m a member of the Piano Technician’s Guild on the road to becoming an RPT. This is the instrument I grew up on. It’s the most mechanically complex instrument in the world, and it’s super exciting learning how to navigate its mysteries. It truly is an instrument of extreme mechanical precision. It brings me great joy to coax the purest tones out of it and to turn old long-forgotten pianos into new vibrant instruments brimming with life so those who sit down to play it will be filled with inspiration – just as I was.
I’ve had so many incredible experiences on the road sharing my music for over a decade and I consider myself incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to see the world in such a way. I am proud to have been a part of a slice of music history with so many talented musicians exploding with creativity along the way. I’m filled with respect for the event organizers who deemed it all worthy enough to share and build their local communities around it. And of course I’m utterly stoked to have been able to connect musically with everyone who has listened – both to KiloWatts music, and also to all the music of our era, and allowed it to move your soul. THANK YOU!
In 2002 I unlocked the floodgates of creativity with something important to say, and I’ve said it to the fullest of my ability in what felt like one powerful singular outward breath. It is time to take an in-breath now and absorb, observe, and listen. See you on the other side… <3
I’ll be playing Harry Oung’s musical Tesla Coil during my set. Zzzaap!
This event will take place in front of Independence Hall in historic Philadelphia, right next to the iconic Liberty Bell.
