Just picked up a Voco-Loco by Radial Engineering for my pedal bard. This thing rocks! Check it out!

Right now Im using a delay, envelope filter, harmonizer, etc and the Voco-Loco has made integrating my board so much easier. And its fun!

quARTet is released TODAY!!

My latest recording, quARTet is released today on Origin records Tynan Front Cover Digipak

I’ve always enjoyed the relationship between image and sound. In 2015 I began collaborating with some of my favorite artists – many of whom I had personal and/or professional relationships prior to beginning this project – this made it quite personal to me. The process was quite simple. I requested each artist to submit one of their pieces so I could create a newly composed musical work inspired by their art. I printed the work and as I sat with the piece I listened to what manifested in my head. Then I transcribed what I was hearing – on a few occasions I did not feel the first music created represented the image. I saved the piece and went back to the drawing board and listened again. Finally, I fell that I was able to capture the sound in time the image inspired me. Maybe it was already there and I just captured it.

The result is quARTet.

Europe in May/Stuff

There has not been too much traveling this fall (Ive been really busy teaching mostly), but looks like the road will be calling again.  I have some gigs coming up in Banff, and Ottawa and I’ll be heading back to Europe to make some music in Germany, The Netherlands, and Ireland this coming May. As those dates get locked down I’ll add them to my events.  I’ve been also working on a new quartet project that’ll hopefully be ready for release this summer. YAY!
