Computer Emergency! (#Technical Difficulties)


First off, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who voted in my last post about the Video Game album. Over 100 people chimed in, and the most wanted songs on the album were:

  • Delfino Plaza (Super Mario Sunshine)
  • Zelda "Ocarina" Medley
  • Chocobo Theme (Final Fantasy Series)
  • Lugia's Theme (Pokemon 2000)
  • Scars of Time (Chrono Cross)
  • Sonic the Hedgehog Medley 

More updates on the album soon! In the meantime, I'm hoping to get back to posting videos next week, continuing with our tutorial series, new music videos, mailbags, and even some behind the scenes clips. But there is a big reason I haven't been posting videos lately (besides all the traveling) - my computer and camera have been giving me problems and are progressively worsening. My computer is over 7 years old and in technology years, that's ancient. 

 The dreaded crash screen :(

This pop up is my worst nightmare when in the middle of a project

The 2014 Ocarina Collab unites 70 ocarinists from around the world!


 This past October, ocarinists from around the globe once again represented their cities, states, and countries in our annual video collaboration, all the while playing the ocarina out in public in the name of "ocarina awareness"!

Performing with the Videri String Quartet



David with Videri

In 2013, I was invited to perform at a pre-concert show in New York for the "Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses". What made this performance so special was that I would have the opportunity to perform with the very talented Videri String Quartet - a Boston based ensemble that focused on classical arrangements of video game music. That evening was magical and was instantly a major highlight of my career, especially since it took place at Nintendo World!
