Three Sisters with Red Herring Puppets

Red Herring Puppets is an incredible puppet company based here in Tucson. Our first big collaboration was for the All Souls Procession in November 2021. I recorded, arranged, and mixed the music for Three Sisters, an original song by Red Herring in which each sister represents birth, life, and death. Lisa Sturz, the head puppeteer, lent me a 100 year old bowl back mandolin which can be heard in the arrangement. We recently just finished recording the soundtrack for Red Herring’s original show UGLY, which debuted in March 2022.

Great Sand Dunes National Park Artist Residency

My partner Eric Prather and I completed our artist in residency at Great Sand Dunes National Park in October, 2019.  Whispering Sand, a solar powered surround sound installation, was set up at the Visitors Center where guests would pour sand into amplified funnels that created a surreal sonic experience.  We were recently featured on Colorado Public Radio talking about the experience, and the music composition, SANDBOX I, that was born out of the residency.
