I had the good fortune of working on this very interesting project this year. I played bass and sang some backing vocals on the latest Amygdaloids music release, Anxious. It is a tie-in with the book Anxious which you can read a review of here.

The book gives a new view of fear, anxiety and other emotions, and how problems with fear anxiety can be more effectively treated. The CD explores some of the same psychological themes of the book, but through music. Buying the book means you also receive a free download of the music.

Both the book and the CD will be released on July 14th. I will post links and whatnot when available.

News – January 27th, 2015

Life is life, you can’t change that. Rescheduled for the second time, I will be finally recording vocals this Monday for Silent Moon at Nuthouse Studios, but not before swinging by Moon Labs to finish ‘Take The Day Off’ on Saturday. This unfortunately is the balancing act of art & work & time & money but i’m looking forward to it.

Taylor, who created all the amazing artwork for the first record signed on again for Silent Moon which is very exciting news. She will also be doing a little animation work for an upcoming music video.

The music video! It’s here and finally happening this spring. Eliya Akbaş will be writing, producing & directing. He outlined his idea and I got to admit that Daniela and I are pretty excited about it.

I got to do something pretty cool recently and say hello to my family on Dublin City FM this previous Sunday. They heard it too, my mother commenting that she’s now an expert on the brain! (when wasn’t she?). Joe discussed his work in the field of neuroscience, The Amygdaloids and our duo So We Are. I go to talk a little at the end about Supersmall which was great.

The musical adventures continue.

My Mind's Eye: Scientific American

My Mind’s Eye, a series of video interviews for Scientific American

In addition to performing as Supersmall, we are also the *rhythm section of New York neuroscience rock band The Amygdaloids. Lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Joseph LeDoux has been working with Scientific American on a series of video interviews in relation to the brain. Incorporated in these videos is the music of The Amygdaloids. They are a really cool and interesting mix of science and music worth checking out.
