Golden Delicious

Kiss Kiss | Joshua Benash

I was introduced to choreographer and dancer Amber Sloan through email correspondences in mid 2011. Amber, who has an extensive body of work (http://ambersloanchoreography.tumblr.com/), was premiering a new duo in October and needed twenty minutes of music to correspond with the piece. I teamed up with friend and cellist Caitlin Grace Bailey to compose the music. The result was a beautiful piece comprised of droning cello, ambient guitar, and contrapuntal melodies. Caitlin and I performed the piece live three consecutive nights during Brooklyn's annual Hærfest.

ARRANGEMENTS

Electric Century

Mikey Way of My Chemical Romance and my buddy Dave Debiak of Sleep Station approached me to arrange strings for their new band Electric Century. This is the result. I was very honored to be a part of this great project.

Sleep Station

Sleep Station | Joshua Benash

I was approached by friend and former label mate Dave Debiak (Sleep Station, New London Fire) to arrange a string part for his song "I am Blind" off the album The Pride of Chester James.

The Gay Blades

Savages | Joshua Benash

For the release of their LP Savages, The Gay Blades asked me to make a string and vocal arrangement for the song "Every Night is a Revival." The album, which was produced by Dean Baltulonis (The Hold Steady, Piebald), was released by Triple Crown Records in 2010.
