Tredici Bacci is a band I started in 2013 with my compatriots from music school. Initially it had 13 members, now it generally fluctuates between 10 and 20. We’ve made 4 albums, scored 2 films, and traveled extensively throughout the northeast. The band is my main vehicle of expression and I love performing with and working alongside the incredible members of the band. LEARN MORE.
A shared energy brings GNR8RZ together. The quartet—Anthony Coleman, Simon Hanes, Aliya Ultan, and Calvin Weston—find common ground in kinetic melodies and constant motion, zig-zagging between blown-out chaos and hypnotic grooves. LEARN MORE.
Luxardo is my washed-up 1970s Italian lounge singer alter ego.
Trigger is a three piece thrash metal/improv band that started in late 2014. Myself and the other two members were actually assigned to play together, never having met before, in a concert tribute to the composer/improvisor John Zorn. Zorn liked our energy and asked us to perform some pieces from his “bagatelles” collection, which we’ve toured extensively throughout the US and Europe. We regularly tour performing our own original music as well.
Shimmer is my band with Anina Ivry-Block, Nina Ryser, and Paco Cathcart.
“Shimmer take the foundations of rock music—the flailing riffs, soaring harmonies, stuttering drum beats—and chew them into gritty sludge”
Since 2017, I’ve performed with JG Thirlwell in the live stage incarnation of Thirlwell’s recording project, Xordox. Xordox is a synthesizer-based endeavor in which science fiction elements brush up against crime noir, mixed with allusions to epic film scores. Armed with an audacious attitude and an arsenal of machines, we serve up a selection of thrilling retro-future mind capsules. This is music made from a life saturated in culture, both underground and mainstream, high and low.
MEIER – HANES – AMBERG
I met Swiss percussionist David Meier when he was visiting NY, he did me the honor of asking if I’d record with him and another Swiss freak who was in town, saxophonist Elio Amberg. We barely spoke before heading into the studio, which might have been a good thing because we had a great time and ended up with a record which I think sounds damn good! Our first tour, spring 2020 in Switzerland and Portugal, was a blast and we have another album on the way.
JG THIRLWELL + ENSEMBLE
I work as the transcriptionist, arranger, and music director for JG Thirlwell’s ensemble project, comprised of harp, viola, piano, drumset and electric bass/guitar. The repertoire is a combination of music from Thirlwell’s groundbreaking Industrial Rock project Foetus, as well as new compositions written for the group.
