In 2011, I assisted on a scoring session recording the score for the Diablo 3 game with world renowned engineer John Kurlander and the Pacific Symphony Orchestra at Segerstrom Hall in Orange County. John recorded soundtracks for blockbuster movies such as Lord of the Rings and Hurt Locker. The soundtrack for the highly anticipated game by Blizzard Entertainment is now available for purchase directly from iTunes. Coincidentally, a pair of AEA KU4 microphones that I engineered was used on the session for a string pickup left and right of the conductor’s podium. Big thanks to John Kurlander and Ron Streicher for having me on the team for this gratifying experience.

I’m attending the eighth annual MUSEXPO conference at the W Hotel in Hollywood, which is aimed to bring the music world together in a very focused, productive and meaningful manner thanks to its friendly, forward–thinking and intimate setting. I very much look forward to refresh and expand business relationships and discover new artists. Please get in touch if you would like to meet me there.

I recently produced and engineered a session with the wonderful bass player Lyman Medeiros at the Greene Room Studio in Burbank, CA to record about 200 samples for AEA Ribbon Mics. A wide range of dynamic and condenser microphones was used to capture sound examples for AEA’s listening room section on their website. Big thanks to Lyman, Marc Greene, Paul Pegas, Nathan Bowers, Andy Georges, and Sara Dooley for making this session a real treat.

The song “American Dream” by Irish Singer-Songwriter Patrick K was recently played in the episode “Who Can Say What’s True” of ABC’s Desperate Housewives. The song was produced and recorded by Mikal Reid, mixed by myself at Firewater Studios, and mastered by Roger Lian at Masterdisk NYC. Congrats Patrick!

The first four songs of the upcoming album by German band aVid* have been mixed by myself at Marc Greene’s (The Calling, Lifehouse, Patti Austin) personal studio called the Greene Room. The excellent acoustics and eclectic collection of outboard gear was a perfect match for my approach to the music of aVid*.
