I have been playing the cello since the age of 3. Both my parents met at a music camp in Madison, Wisconsin when they were young playing viola. I began to play my new electric cello after graduating high-school, playing open mics and with my friends punk bands. I joined Olken at Suny Purchase in the fall of 2008. We released one album that you can find at the link below. I returned to my hometown Kalamazoo and began again with the band, Who Are The Owls. I played electric and acoustic cello, and we released an ep. We split up in 2010, but have each continued our music in other ways. I have been working on a solo project titled The Neo-Shaman and his Post-Human Material. This work features neo-tribal themes. I have some group recordings, solo songs, and a radio theater show. Since 2008 I have been learning and perfecting my skill at; the mouth harp, digereedoo, viola, violin, guitar, banjo. I have some experience with the trombone and flutes and hope to expand my musical instrument repertoire to as many instruments as possible, but mainly the piano.
This was my first band Olken. Olken is still together today, but I left new york and split form the band. I really enjoyed the time I spent with Olken. Check out their myspace at: http://www.myspace.com/weareolken/music
Here is a video that I was in, it was created by Kevin Olken in May 2009.
