Our Video for Hangar Doors

“Hangar Doors (Roll­out)” has a new music video to go with it!

I went to the NASA pho­to archive and gath­ered togeth­er some great images from var­i­ous Colum­bia shut­tle mis­sions that give an idea of the scenes I had in mind while I was writ­ing “Hangar Doors (Roll­out)”, the first track from my album. Bill had fun stitch­ing them togeth­er and work­ing out the tim­ing so they made a smooth flow with the pace of the music.

We hope you enjoy the video! Let us know what you think with a com­ment below.

Days of Remembrance

The lat­ter part of Jan­u­ary and ear­ly Feb­ru­ary is potent: it is a time that we reflect upon and hon­or the fall­en crews of Apol­lo 1, Chal­lenger, and Colum­bia, and all those who have lost their lives in the cause of explo­ration. Dur­ing these days of remem­brance, I would like to encour­age us all to reflect upon our space heroes while lis­ten­ing to the music of “Colum­bia: We Dare to Dream.” Con­tin­ue read­ing “Days of Remem­brance”

Columbia CD Travels to the ISS!

Sur­prise, sur­prise! Thanks to NASA astro­naut Clay Ander­son, my Colum­bia CD appar­ent­ly took a lit­tle trip to the Inter­na­tion­al Space Sta­tion, via the space shut­tle Dis­cov­ery mis­sion STS-131.

A Gem of a Picture

It is always amaz­ing to me how every indi­vid­ual brings their own unique sparkle to the expe­ri­ence of music.  I mean, you can sit down thir­ty peo­ple in a room, give each of them a sheet of paper and a box of crayons, put on some music for them to hear, and say “Lis­ten close­ly, and draw what it sounds like…”.…  And despite the fact that all hear the exact same music in the same room at the same time, and all have the same col­ors of crayons, each per­son comes up with a total­ly dif­fer­ent and pre­cious gem of a pic­ture!  Now, isn’t that kind of remark­able?
