Professional Tubist looking to THROW DOWN. I often play through a Helix, and can be subtle... Or not. I've been in countless cover/party bands in NYC, and done my fair share of rockabilly, blues, and of course classical music. In addition to my sound cloud stuff (morning rituals, etc), I still perform with the Nevermind Orchestra (all brass Nirvana cover band), I recorded (acoustic) the first 3 albums with "the born again floozies". I'm pretty adaptable, and looking to make noise.

Sear Two Part Invention 1 Bk2
Sear Two Part Invention 1 Bk2This is Invention #1 in Walter Sear's Book 2. 1974. Self recorded using no click track or effects, just Tracking Pt2 and subsequently pt1 with Ableton, and listening back to the first track. Its not perfect - a page turn made it pretty challenging to record.

Bach Cello Suite 2
Bach Cello Suite 2My work in progress on the Bach 2nd sonata. Almost there - sorry for the microphone tap with the tuba bell. Recoded on my Rudy with a 609e Sennheiser
Bach Cello Suite 5 Tuba Practice
Bach Cello Suite 5 Tuba PracticeHere is my work on Bach's 5th Cello Sonata. I have been slowly working on this on and off over the years. It is NOT finished, but you can hear what I am trying to achieve. I did this on one take with bad page turns, condensation removal, and a brief coughing fit. I still like the piece

All Washeed Up/Big Dreams
All Washeed Up/Big DreamsI wrote this song for as a weekly challenge, the Theme was All Washed up. My take is personal triumph despite the world, with a little love and compassion sprinkled in.
AM2 DEMOHere is a quick demo of a song in process - The first solo is me singing into the Uke with a TON of Overdrive. 2nd durring the build is just me playing. Form to change - Words and incoming
GravityDemo for Gravity - a song about the gravity of attraction. Pardon my singing - it is a demo!
They Grow Up So Fast
They Grow Up So FastNo tuba on this. I felt the urge to go back the piano. Improvisation over the chord changes for One Hand One Heart - or at least close. Missing my kids on this snowy day.
FakelifeJust a sad song for a friend.
Save Yourself (no Voice)
Save Yourself (no Voice)Here is a cleaned up version of the beds for Save yourself. I've improved the Uke parts, cleaned a few clips, and still have a ton of work to do...
