News


February 2024



Hello! Winter marches on with bitter cold temperatures and storms blanketing the nation while we hear stories about last year being the hottest on record. Totally whack, brah.

A couple of months ago my computer failed in a spectacular way and I've spent way too much time climbing out from the digital abyss. Things are almost back to normal (or what passes for normal here at CelloBop headquarters). I recognize this is a first world problem, but it's MY first world problem. I generally try to steer clear of whining in my newsletters, but it's nice to branch out.

Valentines' Concert

I am excited about an upcoming Valentine's Day show with my string trio on February 14th. We are including some new romantic pieces, some JS Bach and I'm trotting out new arrangements of some of my earlier not-so-romantic songs. Keepin' it real.

The trio show is at the Whidbey Island Center for Arts, our first show at this wonderful venue. This is a gorgeous space and a premier spot on Whidbey Island. The trio show is at the Whidbey Island Center for Arts, our first show at this wonderful venue, and you can find info and Tickets here.

Gideon and Troy

On Feb 24th I'm playing at Ott & Hunter in Langley, WA with Troy Chapman, an excellent guitarist. This will be our first show together. Troy is admired for his Django repertoire but he is quite versatile and this will be a fun new collaboration. Tickets

The Future

I am in the midst of booking a tour in October in Idaho and Montana because it seems the older I get the more I embrace the long view. Optimistic? Clueless? There are many paths to enlightenment.

Multi-Lingual Cello Music

I recently sold sheet music to people in Taiwan and Italy. It's interesting how CD sales have all but vanished but my cello sheet music, a decidedly niche market, has taken up some slack. I suppose it's because there's no streaming service offering it just yet.

In other news, I recently composed a soundtrack for a documentary film. The project grew in scope over time and when all was said and done I ended up with many cues that hold up rather well on their own. More about the film another time when it becomes available. I'm considering making an album of movie soundtrack cues - or perhaps I should skip straight to a sheet music version and send it to Taiwan.

A Bit of Buster

Buster Keaton made a string of brilliant films at and Sherlock Jr is a personal favorite of mine. This is an excerpt from that film with my cello soundtrack. Clocking in at 8:37 it's a big ask nowadays, but I think this may just hold your attention. Context (you can skip this paragraph) - Our hero is a mild-mannered film projectionist with aspirations of being a great detective. He is, of course, in love with a sweet young lady but his slimy competitor just framed him so it looks like Buster stole something from her father. This scene opens where he is asked to leave the house and she returns the ring he had just given her. Moments later the slime-ball exits and Buster is hot on his trail. Hilarity ensues. Later on, back in the projection booth, he is dejected and sleepy. Ashe begins rolling the film, he goes into a dream sequence which is cinematically brilliant and wonderfully bizarre. This excerpt concludes as the 'dream movie' (think Wizard of Oz) begins, shortly before the debonair Sherlock Jr appears. Sherlock Jr excerpt - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAwpe20H-2k
