Thanks for a pretty rad year y'all. I was honored to perform at the VMFA early in the year, do a sound installation at the Valentine Museum over the summer and close out the year giving a talk at TEDxyouthrva. 2019 looks to be full of recording projects, more wild performances, and instrument building. Thanks for the endless support. Be good to each other ❤️

sometimes silly things are required
winter solstice is the new vernal equinox #doomed
One of the greatest things about making weird instruments is getting to share and discuss them with others. Had a blast talking with audience members and other presenters about the dulcitars in the post event interactive session. • • • • •

Speaker and performer Dave Watkins showed off some of his handmade dulcitars in his recreation of “It’s Birds” in the #interactivesession. #tedxyouthrva18 #elevate #tedx 📸 @donmearsphoto

My TEDxYouth@RVA talk is live. Link in bio.
I talked a bit about making music and making instruments to make that music and then played the shortest version of "Marshall St" ever and was only slightly terrified.
