Three new albums have been released by The Materia Collective this summer: VERSUS, PATTERN, and MULTIPLAYER III: WAVE. From solo to choir and crowd ‘clapper’, I had the pleasure of being a part of all three. You can check out my ‘track record’ here (scroll below my bio)!
- VERSUS– GameLark teamed up with Materia Collective, to create VERSUS, an album celebrating decades of fighting music.
- PATTERN: An Homage to Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture- blown away by the breathtaking elegance of Jessica Curry’s score and were inspired to pull together the talents of the Materia Collective to pay tribute her music
- MULTIPLAYER III: WAVE– a large-scale VGM charity album themed around water, with a goal to raise money for the Water.Org organization
With my wacky background in stagecraft and puppetry, I was delighted to discover and join the newly-formed “Puppetry Guild of Pittsburgh”. We will be holding our first event, the “Pierogie Power Puppet Slam” this Saturday, August 20th at The Union Project. I am performing “Waltz de Chocobo” with The Bwak Choir members Sean Lenhart, Stephanie Miller, and Brandon Guillot, and also “Death of a Puff” from our Nintendo-parody troupe, Super Smash Opera, with James Newsome. Over ten acts performing that evening, it will be a fun evening of entertainment, and homemade pierogie, that you won’t want to miss!!! Check out the event link for more info!

My classical opera + nintendo mashup parody troupe, Super Smash Opera, will be performing LIVE with the full original cast at Super Smash Con on Saturday Aug 13th at 1:30pm. If you like the bugs bunny method of showcasing classical music, or are a deep down fan of Mozart, Bizet, and Puccini, you might like our 45 minute show:) #gameaudio #opera #parody #nintendo

Schell Games audio designer Tim Rosko and I did the audio for Water Bears and there’s a contest where you can win an HTC Vive AND a copy of the updated and beach-i-fied vVR version of WB on Twitter right now. If you haven’t tried out VR yet due to the price point, this might be a great way to get in on the action… and hear me gurgling in your face as a big eyed tardigrade while Tim’s music serenades you:) #gameaudio #vr #vive

Excited to announce that our latest album, “MOBIUS: Sonic the Hedgehog Remixed” by The Materia Collective, has been released and is now available on Loudr, itunes, spotify, and apple music! I sang on six of these tracks, two of which I arranged; yes, my Muppet tribute ensemble “The Bwak Choir” has returned for their take on “Death Eggs Over Easy”, and I went back to my jazzy roots with a different take on the Chemical Plant Zone theme, “Chemical Scat Zone”. Enjoy! #gameaudio
Here are some postings and reviews relating to the premiere of Mozart’s Don Giovanni with the new libretto I helped write based on Bram Stoker’s Dracula for Undercroft Opera:
Many thanks to all who came out to our production, and to the cast and crew for all their hard work! I had a blast working on this show, AND getting to be a vampire bride, fangs and all;)
Now I can add ‘virtually’ performing the “Theme from Halo” with Video Games Live for the Dublin International Game Music Festival to my portfolio:) You can see my face pop up a couple times as part of the choir and extra psyched that they kept my thumbs up at the end. Nice to see some familiar faces from the Materia Collective in the ensemble too! #gameaudio – Video Link – Intro and Music performed at 58:07
Mozart’s classic opera Don Giovanni is coming to Undercroft Opera, but with a vampire twist! I worked hard for two months with Liz Rishel, Michael Greenstein,Gwendolyn R. Schmidt and Mary Beth Sederburg crafting a new libretto based on the story and characters from Bram Stoker’s Dracula! In addition to helping write the show, I am also covering the role of “Zerlina” (aka. “Lucy” from the book) and playing one of the “Three Vampire Brides”. Performances are May 26th-29th at the Antonian Theatre in Pittsburgh, PA. Tickets are currently on sale, $5 off your general or premium ticket if you use the discount code “BOG211”
