If you haven't yet listened to any of the sound samples on this site, I encourage you to do so. The player at right streams four songs from HALLAZGO, my solo violin-and-voice outing. I consider this material to be stylistically indebted to J.S. Bach, the Delta Blues, and Steve Reich, in equal parts.
I am extremely comfortable performing solo. Since moving back to Minnesota over a year ago, I have garnered some valuable experience performing alone in a variety of settings, in addition to scores of house concerts given while traveling. My live setup is very simple, and consists of three channels: I use a condenser mic to capture my voice, and some of the violin, which is also equipped with a DI. I then mic either the floor, or a wooden box to capture the stomp. With this setup, I can comfortably perform in a concert hall, a loud bar, or an attentive coffee house. In a very intimate performance context I use no sound reinforcement at all.
More information about my ensembles and projects, including sound samples, can be found on the corresponding page.

Two videos, made during the tracking of HALLAZGO, have been posted to youtube.
Two more videos were taken during an interview at KUMD in May, 2010.
