“Fade To Orange” is an orchestral piece I wrote between 2009 and 2011 and was performed in 2011 with Nels Cline (lead guitarist from Wilco,The Nels Cline Singers), Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, John Zorn,The Nels Cline Singers), Myself on drums and electronics, and the Oakland East Bay Symphony. What a ride it was! So now it’s time to record it! Yes, Nels, Trevor, myself, and an orchestra. Not your usual project! And I enlisted some awesome folks to remix FTO. The amazing Yuka Honda of Cibo Matto, Mocean Worker and Beautiful Bells. How cool is that! I can’t wait to hear what they come up with!
So with your help this can become a reality! Pre-ordering the CD, download, or 180 gram vinyl, or many of the other exclusives are a sure way to get this to happen.
Fade To Orange is dedicated to my amazing wife. It’s nearly impossible to put into words or music what she means to me. This piece is my gift to her for being the greatest gift I could have ever asked for.
I’m grateful for your time. Thanks in advance for being a part of this.
Peace & Love,
