i was recently included in an interesting article entitled "8 great bands emerging outside of williamsburg and the les" in blackbook mag. it's funny to be called a "band", especially after spending all day notating a string quartet, though the included photo is definitely more "band" than "composer". check out...

nice thorough review of television landscape over on classical tv. check it out here. i especially appreciate the lennon nod, and the suggestion of a flaming lips collaboration, which would be a dream beyond a dream come true. here's a quick excerpt: "Brittelle has a keen understanding of textures and...

nice eMusic Spotlight interview with jayson greene up online now. here's the opening gambit: "What happens when a bunch of classical nerds get together and try to build an AOR-Rock Masterpiece? It sounds like the setup to a rather obscure joke, and the scenario might sound deeply unpromising. But this... Continue reading

in the waning days of 2010 "television landscape" picked up some end of year nods, including being named #20 on emusic's best albums of the year. they broke it down this way. The result has the liberated feel of a rebel yell, and the music veers fluidly and seemingly unselfconsciously... Continue reading
