The video for (a cover of Marilyn Manson’s) “In the Shadow of the Valley of Death” was released on YouTube today at 1:00 p.m. (CET)! This is Deus Ex Lumina’s first video to be released that states: “The mystery has been revealed! Here we are in the flesh and we are dark.”. I really enjoyed working on the video because we are on the same wave-length when it comes to the style and feel for DEL. The concept and look for the video were easily agreed upon which made it easy for Don MacTavish to be behind the camera directing the shoot. Don really enjoyed the editing process and applying the post-production effects to enhance the overall feel for the video (Don also remixed and remastered the track specifically for the video’s release). I really hope you all enjoy this video and future releases from DEL.
I’ll be performing a set as opener for Ed Richwood. Get ready for an electrifying night of music! Join us for an intimate concert featuring his signature blend of grunge and melodic rock. Let Ed’s powerful vocals and dynamic stage presence take you on a journey through raw emotion and soulful melodies. Don’t miss out on this unforgettable musical experience.
Finally I will be performing again with my dear friend Matthew Presidente!
I will be performing two sets at the Red Bird Brewing in Kelowna, BC with my dear friend Matthew Presidente. This is going to be a real special show for a few reasons. First is we have not performed live in the same place since 2019! Due to the pandemic we had many online events but never in the same place. Our first set will be a mix of each others original songs and, as in the past, we will back each other. The second set we will be performing the songs from our upcoming release of a new project we are calling MT805.
For over a decade we have been cowriting songs, supporting each others projects and performing live and online. Living 8000 km apart for the past five years we still managed to write and create content together despite a global pandemic. Out of the shadow of the pandemic they came up with the MT805 project with sole purpose of creating fun dance music that embraces the whimsical and light-hearted spirt of the 80’s. Influenced by great bands like: The Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Depeche Mode, Yaz (Yahoo in Europe & UK), Bronski Beat, Sparks and Erasure now get ready to dance to the sounds of MT805!
Also joining us is the artist Fight or Flea a folk-punk musician from Penticton, British Columbia who will be performing a set of his original songs. The event is being presented by QUSIC a new LGBT2Q+ Artist Music Series, produced by Rebellious Unicorns Production Company. Here is a link to learn more about QUSIC. Here is a link to the Link to the QUSIC Facebook Event for the show.
Doors open at 18:00 and there will be three sets for the evening. Hope to see you there. Red Bird Brewing 1080 Richter St, Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada ( Google Maps )
Once Again Fête de la Musique is happening in Berlin
I’ll be playing a set for Fête de la Musique at the Dirty Velvet Drinkery in Prenzlauer Berg. I love this little bar that has a great vibe and really good drinks. Music starts at 18:00 and there will be four artists for the evening. Hope to see you there.
