Time moves faster and faster every year. It’s hard to believe that 2015 is just around the corner. It’s even harder to believe that I’ve been in LA for over three years now! Here’s what’s been going on in the past few months: ISQ wrote and performed an original score for silent film Ménilmontant (1926). ISQ gave theContinue reading
It’s hard to believe that we’re already halfway through September – it seems like just yesterday that I was in Wisconsin at fresh inc. Of course, while the rest of the country is settling into a nice fall, Los Angeles is experiencing a heat wave. Sigh. Lots has happened since the end of summer. I recently spentContinue reading “Happenings”
Yesterday I spent 8.5 hours in the studio with Isaura (and we were joined by guest violist Miguel Atwood-Ferguson) and recorded 19 jazz arrangements by Mike Rocha. It was a very long day, but also super rewarding. Plus, we had Tender Greens for lunch and that makes for a life-affirming and super delicious power lunch indeed!Continue reading “Recording at EastWest Studios with ISQ”

We’ve ordered business cards, updated our website, made a facebook page…it feels great to have everything updated and looking great. If you want to keep up with ISQ on all of our various social media outlets, here are the importantContinue reading “ISQ Updates”
(fresh inc 2014 violin participants) I just finished up two weeks of June in Kenosha, Wisconsin, as a participant in Fifth House Ensemble’s fresh inc fest.

Hi everyone – it’s been a while. More updates later as I’m about to hop on a plane, but just wanted to share this little holiday greeting that I recorded with Isaura String Quartet. (Yes, everything looks backwards because the computer flipped it around. Oops.) Happy holidays!
My friend and colleague Adam Wolf is raising money through Kickstarter for his band, Rock Horn Project. It is a rock band fronted by French horn, which is pretty unique. The funds raised will be used to record a cd of the tunes he has composed for the group. I’ll be contributing strings to theContinue reading “Rock Horn Project Kickstarter”
Found a video of a performance from fall 2012 where I was concertmaster of the CalArts Orchestra. Very fun concert – great to play with bands of CalArtians!
