recording-production

Here you will find me on production (mine and others), recorded materials (some for live performances) and arrangements. In recording the cello, the capacity that I work in will depend on the artist I work with, from free improvisations to direct translation of ideas. I generate prep with lines of melody, harmony, countermelodies, chords, textures etc., anything that could be used. Recording sessions have either been done at home or in recording studios near and far. Anything is possible, just.

I have had the pleasure of working with a vast number of solo artists and bands/collectives/groups, some of which I have been a longstanding member of. You’ll find some on the discogs link below. I’ve yet to complete it with everything I’ve done, but for now this’ll do.
