We are so glad you found us! Now check out how YOU can help make the recording of Fade To Orange a reality. I wrote FTO between 2009 and 2011. It was performed on April 15th, 2011 in Oakland, CA at the wonderful Paramount Theater. The piece features Nels Cline on guitar, Trevor Dunn on electric bass, and yours truly on drums, and electronics. Writing Fade To Orange was, by far, the biggest challenge for me as a musician. But one of my feelings about music is that composing is the most rewarding part of being a musician. So with that in mind, FTO has been the most rewarding experience for me as a musician thus far.
Recording FTO is a must for me. It’s an important piece of my life as a musician. I never thought I’d have the opportunity to write for an orchestra, let alone perform with one, and along with my musical pals Nels Cline, and Trevor Dunn. So recording it properly is extremely vital! We’re really looking forward to sharing this music with you and doing it in such a cool and unique way.
Fade To Orange is dedicated to my amazing wife. It’s nearly impossible to put into words or music what she means to me. But this piece is my gift to her for being the greatest gift I could have ever asked for.
We would love for you to be a part of the process of making this piece come to life. Below this screen --" you’ll see some different ways to be part of the process. Lots of options! [For these options please visit Scott's PledgeMusic site here.]
I’m grateful for your time, and thanks in advance for being a part of this.
Peace & Love,
