~~ Big News Announcement (Composer Residency) ~~
Less than year ago, I was going to beer festivals and contacting breweries endlessly for a chance to do a single sonic tasting at one of them. As of this past weekend, I am officially the “composer-in-residence” at Two Ladders Brewing – perhaps the first time ever that a brewery has it's own composer!
What this means is that I will be composing music and having it premiere at the brewery as part of a series of events we are running featuring their beer & my music. It’s a unique and fun time that is definitely worth a night out for.
Our first/next event will be in early August featuring beer, music, & wing pairings. This sonic tasting will be the first of a bi-monthly series we are running where each one will feature different flights of beer paired with a rotating array of foods & each pairing of food and beer will be accompanied by original music to highlight and bring out different flavors within each of them.
If you have any interest in craft beer, food, psychology, music, or even technology, this event is one of a kind and an awesome way to experience all the above in a new light you likely haven’t considered before.
As a composer, I am super grateful for this incredible chance to immerse myself in the world of music, beer and innovation and to continue to further bridge the gap between dining and scoring.
Stay tuned for updates, as I will be sharing behind-the-scenes glimpses of my creative process, upcoming events, and other exciting musical adventures. Also be sure to follow Two Ladders here and on Instagram (@Two_Ladders_Brewing) and check out some of their fantastic beers.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement and to Pete, Jeff, & Wendy at Two Ladders for having me on board. Lets grab some brews & enjoy some tunes!
