New Video: Anthem for Solo Marimba

Here’s a new video I recorded of my piece Anthem for solo marimba. It was released in conjunction with Brooklyn Classical, a new label bringing classical music to non classical listeners. We experimented with some non traditional recording techniques, and I’m curious what you think! Listen with some headphones / speakers and feel free to leave a comment. Cheers everyone!

Episode 1

My good friend Aaron Staebell and I started a music podcast. We thought really hard about the name and decided to call it the Aaron and Ivan Podcast. Listen and subscribe on iTunes.

We don’t know what we are doing so it’s hilarious. Background music at random times, bad editing, funny stories, but also good info about percussion and music. It’s probably very similar to having coffee or drinks with us.
