hey mom! i know it’s been a while since i gave you an update using this BLOG MONSTER, so i thought i would do exactly that!
1 and 2. Steinomite’s doing well, and he thanks you for asking. He’s performing this saturday afternoon at 2p in the Le Tigre Tent at Chicago’s Tour de Fat. it’s a festival thrown by New Belgium Brewing Company promoting their beer, bicycling, conservation, alternative energy, and great awesome fun! as you know, i’m one of the music directors for the festival. this’ll be our third one of this tour, and it’s going really well so far! Steinomite also has a show with the Hüsker Dudes and Dead Rider at the Hideout on August 26th. only a couple of days later, on August 28th, Steinomite will perform a short set at the Whistler, as part of a night put together by You, Me, Them, Everybody.
boy, that’s a lot!
3. just last saturday was the release part for Hank Frisco: Galaxy Defender, Episode 2! mom, remember how you like Star Trek and other science fiction shows?! This episode is great, and required lots of fun music from me. chase music, romantic music, villain music, hero music, office music. among them, one that i really enjoyed writing, was the villain theme for my friend Tim Heurlin, and variations on it throughout the episode. this was also a fun opportunity to do little variations on the main Hank Frisco theme. as always, if you or anyone else (Dad?) have questions about the score, i’d love to talk you through it. below is a link to the episode! maybe i’ll expand on it in yet another incredibly interesting blog post!
4. Footnote! so psyched about how this show it turning out. major props to Jon and Alicia Reisinger and their team for their awesome work on this show. the most recent episode, “worried sick”, airs tomorrow night (friday july 15th) on WGN, and can then be viewed at www.fntv.com. this episode, as well as the “lost and found” and “overstuffed” episodes were scored mostly by me. drop me a line if you wanna talk about any of this music as well, and check out their facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/footnotetv
