Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color.

Lutenist, musicologist and composer Dominic Schaner grew up on a small family farm in rural California. Here, in this infinite expanse of nature, he was introduced to music at a young age. During his following musical life, Dominic has given concerts as both a solo and ensemble musician throughout North America and in Europe. Dominic lives in West Sonoma County where he curates radio shows for kows 92.5fm, collects private press records and forages for mushrooms around his home in the forest. An advocate for those forgotten and silenced by society, Dominic directs arkestras and explores restorative practices with at-risk populations. [dominic-schaner.bandcamp.com]
