Of course everything went into limbo for a few years, and I'm still in low power mode,
but here's the current situation...
I play keyboards/etc. in Secret Chiefs 3, which is springing back to life.
I also play keyboards in Joshua Cedar's 70's Jazz Rock Revue doing lots of fun fusion/prog covers.
I also play bass/etc. in a PJ Harvey tribute band called Polly Genius.
I played bass in a loud/dark/heavy trio called Monstrika - a band that died during the pandemic. Real bummer, that.
I recorded piano on some tracks for the latest Igorrr album.
Meanwhile I also play everything in various studio projects, with material released under the name Bodies Floating Ashore (or my actual name).
I juggle several other curious projects, including playing stunt parts for other bands' recordings, composing video scores,
performing in cover bands for fun (and money), and all sorts of random music production.
Until their indefinite hiatuses I played bass in miRthkon, and keyboards in MoeTar.
And I was co-leader or side-man in a zillion other bands over the years.

Actually there's much TBD, but we're playing at the Big Ears Festival
in Knoxville, TN! The first of
the two sets in on the 21st, i.e. the first day of the whole event. So many amazing bands are taking over that
town. I can't wait!

The second show for the Big Ears Festival
will be on the third day, i.e. Saturday.
I really hope we're not up against some of the other acts which I'd also like to see!

We had such a great time playing at the Bistro in Hayward on the rainy Saturday night,
why not do it again on a (hopefully not rainy) Wednesday night. We'll do our usual
two set dealio, starting at 7pm.
While not making music I work at UC Berkeley where I'm part of the world's biggest scientific search for extraterrestrial intelligence (Breakthrough Listen) and helped maintain the world's largest volunteer computing project (SETI@home) during its entire 20-year life span. As well I work on some video games, backpack in the mountains or through the deserts, produce silly videos, or write compulsively.
