Old Dad - Moods For Lalu
My son likes to listen to chill, funky instrumental music while studying or playing video games, so I made him a set of "moods" to listen to. Not songs so much as emotional spaces, quantum musical states. Music that can drift in from another room. Music that is like plants, seemingly simple but hiding complexity, bigger on the inside than on the outside.
Climbing Mountains Across The Shoreline Of Your Thought
I was a songwriter, session musician and producer on Climbing Mountains Across The Shoreline Of Your Thought, Dayton singer-songwriter Eric Leonhardt Brown's third solo album. Eric approached me with the idea of collaborating long-distance in January of 2017. I composed basic tracks in Ableton Live and Logic which I would send to him. He'd respond by sending back demos with vocals and lyrics. Eric also composed some of his own material and asked my for lyrics ideas and help. In total I wrote music and/or lyrics for over half the album's 35 songs. Once the writing was complete, I went with Eric into the studio and worked with the session musicians. I also acted as art director and graphic designer on the album. You can see the digital booklet here.
