I have an insanely talented team working on my upcoming tour. Let me take a second to introduce them:
Darin Dahlinger is my brilliant keyboard tech, who can solder a broken cord, calibrate a 24 track tape recorder, or even create a 4 voice polyphonic ringtone while keeping on a happy face at all times. In short, he is way overqualified for this gig.
Dominik Fusina designed the artwork for the tour, including the image on my home page and some excellent t-shirts and a poster. These are not quite ready to debut yet, but they will be on sale at my gigs. Here’s one of his 3D images that I like, though he’s equally at home designing web sites or making interactive music applications:
My webmistress, merchandizing vendor AND tour manager is Lunesse, aka Carli Schultz Kruse. Right now she’s busy booking hotels and flights, as well as redesigning my web site, which will get a total makeover in the next couple of weeks. In the midst of all that she still finds time to make beautiful beads and metalwork that she sells from her own site, such as this one below: wow!
Gustavo Lanzas is an electronic/acoustic musician and tech wizard who gutted my vintage oscilloscopes and retrofitted them for MIDI. Check out his music on MySpace. Here are a couple of the infernal machines he’s been modifying for me (more about these in a future blog):
All in all I’ve got a truly a remarkable team pulling for me, and I feel very fortunate. Everybody’s working flat out with now only 2 weeks till the first gig… this is getting exciting!
