After many months of recording, mixing, mastering and rehearsing, my band GADADU released our debut album on February 24th, 2015. It’s available for streaming and download on our website and on Bandcamp. Thanks so much to the amazing musicians who came together to make this happen: Nicki Adams, Pat Adams, Dan Stein, and Moses Eder on the album, as well as Arthur Vint and Carrie Frey at the release show. This was my first experience mixing and mastering a full-length album, and I couldn’t have done it without the help and advice of many amazing people along the way – special thanks to Eric, Rick, Ross and Matt. Enjoy!
A four-track album featuring Nicki Adams (keys, vocals), Hannah Selin (viola, vocals), Pat Adams (trumpet), Dan Stein (bass) and Moses Eder (drums).
Recorded live at Radio Bushwick, 5.1.14.
A limited number of CDs are available.
The Max/MSP patch for [in]Corporate is now available for free download, so you can generate unique versions of the piece in your own headphones/speakers.

Anne Yoncha and I are building momentum toward the opening of [in]corporate, an immersive multimedia installation exploring the layering of myriad processes in the human body through a walkable forest of sound, hanging string and painted silk. The installation will be exhibited as part of the New Wilmington Art Association‘s 2014 Debut Show at Tower Hill School’s Founders’ Gallery, opening January 10th. Stay tuned for updates as the installation takes shape.
