Alec has interned in the Music Department for Activision during the Summer of 2015; for Quincy Jones Productions during the Summer of 2016; and for SweetSounds Studio from Fall 2016 – Spring 2017, during which time he also took on responsibilities as an Assistant Engineer.

During the summer of 2016, Alec and his musical partner, Daniel, recorded some new material for their do, My Daughter’s Nephew:

In September 2013, Alec took Sonoma Academy musical director, Doug Gallagher, into the studio to record “Levee Worm Blues,” an original song Doug wrote while taking a group of 12 students on a Blues Trail trip from New Orleans to Memphis. Here is the mastered track, with Doug on vocals and guitar; Jordan Day on lead guitar; Spencer Metela on bass and Alec on the kit. Recorded and mastered at Northern Lights Studio in Santa Rosa, CA.

As a Co-Director of the Spring 2014 Evening of the Arts at Sonoma Academy, Alec arranged Justin Schaeffer’s original, solo acoustic “Spare Me” to include drums, electric bass and violin:

At a Summer 2013 Music Production & Engineering camp at New York University’s Steinhardt School, Alec and his team co-wrote and produced an instrumental track called Funk City, for which Alec engineered and played bass:

Alec collaborated with his writing partner, Daniel James, on an original score for the Sonoma Academy production of Mary Zimmerman’s “Metamorphoses.” The two worked over the summer to create musical motifs and themes for the ten vignettes, based on the Greek and Roman tales of Ovid, using Pro Tools and Logic, while the musical director, Benjamin Mertz, also worked on the score.

In the fall, Alec student-taught the elective class with Benjamin for the ensemble (called an “exploratory” at Sonoma Academy), then both Alec and Daniel joined the ensemble in the final weeks approaching performance. “From the beginning, writing with Daniel, through working with the ensemble, to seeing our music performed live during the play, this has been the most collaborative experience I’ve ever worked on,” says Alec.

Following a sold-out run of the play in November 2012, Alec, Daniel and Benjamin intend to record the original score in Spring 2013.

Here are several of the themes Alec and Daniel wrote, arranged and produced for “Metamorphoses”:
