Dutchman

I did something dumb and involved myself in four Fringe shows. Four.

This has led to me being so busy that I have had scant time to actually promote said productions. In fact, one is already open and is only running a couple more days. You should see it. I provided the original music and sound design for:

PURCHASE TICKETS

What's the music like? I started with an unsettling bed of train percussion and beats, but you really want to pay the admission fee to hear the melody played on my mandocaster -- run through a Boss OC-3 so it sounds like a bass.

I freaking love my mandocaster. More about that very soon.
