I’ve recently started another project. It’s an improvisation duo with Jasper Schmich Kinney that we have decided to call J A N U S. The name comes from “J and S” (get it?). The name seems very fitting. In Roman mythology, Janus was a god with two faces who ruled over beginnings, gates, transitions, passages, and endings.
Jasper plays a really fascinating dulcimer that he has detuned and altered in several ways. I do my electronics thing with loops. We’ve played a few gigs thus far, but hadn’t formalized anything until recently.
We’re going to be pretty consistently posting music to social media and other places. Here’s the first taste you’ll find on this site. Enjoy!
