Jesse DeRosa, Recorded Live



Multi-instrumentalist, composer, mathematician, and data hacker Jesse DeRosa steps into the studio for a live session. DeRosa relies primarily on synthesizers and his electronic valve instrument (EVI), focusing on extended melody and undulating drone textures.

Jesse DeRosa is an interdisciplinary instrumentalist, composer, mathematician, and data hacker. As a solo artist, DeRosa relies primarily on synthesizers and his EVI, focusing on extended melody and undulating drone textures. Trained as an orchestral trumpet player and violist, he now focuses on the Electronic Valve Instrument and the integrations of experimental mathematics into the traditional orchestral discourse.

Jesse is a member of Brooklyn doom-fusion-shredders Grasshopper (celebrating its 12th year with a new LP dropping this summer on Hausu Mountain), as well as the Hexbreaker Quartet, The Spiritual Switchboard, and occasionally is convinced to lug all his synths out of the house under the guise of Shingles.

Playing Hooky is Clocktower's live in-studio performance series featuring musicians of all ages and styles from cowboy music to pure noise. Recorded in our Red Hook studios at Pioneer Works and offered as a distraction from the mid-week blues.
