Omake & Johnson

It’s with a heavy heart that I share that my collaborator in this project has died at the age of 43.  Matthew Thomas Shoemaker and I began making music together when we became roommates in 2000.  While we had only 2 official releases and a handful of live appearances, over the years we continued to get together for recording sessions exploring free improvisation as well as simple graphic, conceptual and intentional scores.  In time I hope to create a suitable portal to share this material more broadly.

But to honor Matt’s exceptionally deep and unique creativity, working with Jack Straw Studios, dear friends Rob Millis & Steve Barsotti, along with Matt’s parents and myself will be installing:

Brain Goreng:  Celebrating the Art & Music of Matthew Thomas Shoemaker; at Jack Straw Studios, April 13 – May 24, 2018 : the evening of April 13th there will be an opening reception, if you are in the Seattle area and can plan for that.

For more about Matt and his work, please visit Tiny Mix Tapes, Framework radio podcast & Helen Scarsdale Agency.  Experience Matt’s curated collection of photos and reflections on music via his blogs of old Java photos and SE asian cassettes: Brain Goreng.
