IMG_1307     This is officially #10!!! It’s really hard for me to believe that I’ve already made ten of these.  “kitchen table music” has been such a fun project to work on and I am so thankful for the support that you give me when you check this blog out. It’s been an interesting way for me to push myself creatively and artistically. For #10 I wanted to do something special.  I thought about what I would do for a while (hence why it has taken so long to come together) and I really felt two things. 1) I knew I wanted to use as few objects as possible. 2) As an ode to my first “ktm”,  I wanted to do something that referred back to “Coffee” and 3) I have been found the last collaboration so rich that I wanted to do another one! What I ended up with was 2 espresso cans and an animation from my amazingly talented friend Kevin Abrams.

This “ktm” track was the hardest so far. When Kevin sent me this video he compiled all of his drawings (with my scanner) and just used his artistic instincts to figure out how fast and slow he made the frame rate. When he sent me the first draft I was so excited to work on it, but I had no idea where to start. I started just trying to figure out the sounds for each scene. After a couple days of testing sounds I decided to sit down and give it a few hours…. this is what I came up with!

I named the piece “Candinsky” because…well…I used espresso cans…. it seemed like an appropriate play on words. Also, the real Kandinsky is known for his abstract art, and with Kevin’s abstract take, I felt it made sense. Enjoy!!!!

In this recording I am only using: 2 espresso cans, my hands, and some water


I am a freelance drummer and composer in Cleveland and NYC.
