Site Construction; The Hard Modes; "Locurio 2"

You may have noticed that the homepage of this site has gotten a complete face-lift! With the unveiling of my new jazz/video game music ensemble, The Hard Modes, I decided to modernize that page and add some featured tabs.

The Hard Modes project is one that has technically been years in the making and I'm extremely excited about taking this critical step. Anytime that I teased an arrangement project on this site and my blog? This is what was cooking. Head over to the blog to read more about the group!

Not to be lost while there's more of a spotlight on The Hard Modes right now, I am also excited to be working on writing music for another escape room imagined by the Seattle-based puzzle group Locurio! A couple of years ago I wrote for their current room's featured game, The Vanishing Act, and they asked me to return for their new project.

By the way, I finally got to head to the west coast and play The Vanishing Act--it's incredible. Definitely head there if you're in Seattle; it's by far the best room escape experience that I've had (your bias alarm is probably going nuts right now, but you don't have to take my word for it: they have 5-star ratings on Yelp and Trip Advisor!).

Finally, I'm still playing regularly with my more traditional jazz group, the C'ville Jazz Congregation, in Charlottesville, VA. The other month I even fulfilled a life-long dream (not a hyperbole!) of purchasing a soprano sax! The pic to the left is from a winery gig I played a month or so ago.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by, and be sure to stay tuned as The Hard Modes project continues to be unveiled! Hope to see you at our debut show in September.
