A Summer of Drum Corps

This summer I was fortunate to accept a position as a videographer for the Boston Crusaders Drum & Bugle Corps. Before this summer, I never thought I would be able to professionally follow and document the marching arts. One of the instructors of my high school marching band had told me about the position which opened my eyes to this new opportunity to combine two of my passions: music & video.

I really had no clue what I was getting myself into, and now I know that drum corps is one of those activities you only truly understand by living it. Most people would gawk at the thought voluntarily dedicating their entire summer to traveling overnight on buses, sleeping on the floor in local high schools, and spending all day on a sunny field in the 100 degree heat.

“Play Me, I’m Boston’s”

I have finally released my newest project: Play Me, I’m Boston’s.

The video is a music video shot on all 75 street pianos installed around Boston as part of the Play Me, I’m Yours exhibition. The exhibition has local artists decorate pianos that are installed in public spaces around the world for people to enjoy. I saw how happy people were watching, playing, listening to the pianos as I wandered around the city. I wanted to try and capture that excitement before the pianos were removed. This project was quite the adventure since once we came up with the concept, we had less than a week to be able to make it happen before the pianos were removed.

“Dreaming of Boston” released!

I’m very excited to announce that Marissa Fritz officially has released her debut album “Dreaming of Boston” today!  Marissa and I started working on this album over a year and a half ago – recording on weekends or between classes when we had some free time and access to equipment.  This was such a interesting creative process as we took her songs and built them up into what you hear on the album.  This was my first real dive into studio recording as well as Marissa’s first time recording any of her material.  We had quite the learning curve as we experimented with new techniques and arrangements, but I think all of our hard work paid off.
