Soho  featuring the Malek Jandali Trio

One year in the making, this album was finally released with a concert at Carnegie Hall. I was greatly appreciative when master recording engineer Joe Patrych asked me to be co-producer with him at the sessions in his studio. As I became intimately familiar with the music and the message that Malek was trying to communicate, it evolved into a personal project for me.

Thanks to the wonderful A.W.Duo, I have completed my first attempt at a multicam classical music video, which I've been wanting to do for a while now! It was a great learning experience as I got to record, edit, and mix all the audio and video. Best of all, I really enjoyed doing it and am definitely looking forward to all sorts of possibilities in the future!

Just completed my first Cubase render! Since my keyboard skills aren't perfect, I decided to add realistic performance tempo and dynamic alterations by manually editing the tempo track, note velocities, and volume.

The process of putting this project together was certainly disconcerting in more ways than one. My role was to arrange some well-known music for the performing ensemble. Despite a series of crippling setbacks, Sooa was somehow able to make the magic happen on concert day. It occurred to me however, that perhaps Babbitt's most famous ramblings may yet be true, but in the reverse; rather than the composer dismissing their audience, it is the audience, regardless of their severity or field of education, who might overlook what they hear for what they see.

A volume of Chopin piano pieces arranged by Dina Pruzhansky, for which I digitally typeset the sheet music. After an unexpected but quickly forgotten delay of almost two years, this project has finally met a tangible conclusion.
