Sketch for Winter VI: “Other States”

Dear friends,

I’m thrilled to share the release of “Sketch for Winter VI: Other States” officially out today on the excellent Geographic North imprint, available on cassette or digitally. This is my contribution to their wonderful sketch for winter series, marking not only the the end of the winter season, but also this years installment which also features the beautiful music of Mark Van Hoen (Seefeel). It was an honor to take part. I’m so excited to see this project come to light and to share with you all!

Please visit Adhoc‘s generous premiere of the album as well as a brief interview that Anti Gravity Bunny did with me.

Hope you enjoy the tunes and thanks for listening…

Warmly,

DPG

RumiKoshino_TheChetwood_750pxDear ones, two’s and threes,

I’ll be playing an intimate set of solo tunes for my friend Rumi’s beautiful art show in Oakland coming up March 17th. The excellent Matt Baldwin will also be playing a solo set of astral guitar that will surely transport… if you happen to live in the Bay Area, I hope you can join us in the celebration of Rumi’s 100 Days of Drawings. It will be a lovely evening of art and music. Please have a look at the flyer for all the details and hope to see you there…

Past, present, future…

Dear friends,

2015 has been quite a year. Loved ones have departed, I re-entered academia, and of course listened to, saw, and took part in a lot of music…

Distilling a years-worth of music and life into a single list is an impossible task… That being said, here is my attempt at a best-of for the wonderful label Geographic North, who I’ll have the pleasure of releasing new music with in 2016! I really look forward to sharing the new sounds with you soon, but in the meantime please have a look at my and a few other artists year-in-review HERE

All the best to you in the NEW YEAR!

Internecine music

Dear friends,

I am honored to have been invited to collaborate on “Internecine”, a multimedia tribute to the refuge musicians interned in Australia during WWII. My interpretation, “Internecine VII”, incorporates string samples based (loosely) on the Jewish hymn “Emet Ki Ata”, arranged by Werner Baer. All proceeds from sales will be donated to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) in Melbourne, Australia. Hope you enjoy and please support a great cause!

To learn more about Internecine, please visit this link.

Really looking forward to sharing a quiet evening of music with both Itasca and Sophia Knapp who are traveling up from Los Angeles for a string of shows along the west coast. It should be a lovely and intimate night of acoustic music in one of my favorite SF venues. Hope you can join us!

Warmest,

DPG
