Here are some pictures of my recent theatre collaboration. Adam Vidiksis and I made music for the Hunchback of Notre Dame … a Mute Play. It was produced by the Renegade Company. As you may find in the Company’s website, the play received numerous positive reviews. I am very happy about the resulting collaboration. The video and audio recording of the piece is one the way, but I think that the following pictures can show some aspects of the play. As for the music, my portion of electronic part was coupled with Adam’s imaginative percussion and his own electronics.
Charles Shriner (aka dRachEmUsiK) and I collaborate as Side Dish Side Affect. We released an album in May 2014, and I am very happy with the result. Below is a track in the album called Fermented Stingray.
Charles probably has been performing electronic music before I even got my first synthesizer. He is a multitalented musician who runs a record label, produces albums, tours as a performer, broadcasts a weekly radio show, and runs an electronic music festival (check out charlesshriner.com for his credentials). If you need a music tech guy in Indianapolis, I strongly suggest that you contact Charles.
I first met him at Electro-Music Festival in 2009, and became friends ever since. I particularly remember his excellent improvisation workshops and open-mindness to all kinds of music. Charles and I also share love of good food. We named our group after a homemade Korean dinner at my place. I still remember the taste of an oxtail dish I had at Charle’s place during the recording session. Even our track names in the album are crude translation of Korean side dishes.
Please join Side Dish Side Affect when we come to your town for a gig. Let us also know a good restaurant in your town. Meanwhile, dRachEmUsiK + Onewayness is starting a tour next week. Check them out!
