Wooden Box With Strings/Giraffe Quartet & Duets

John Encarnacao

I have brought two recording projects to fruition in 2020, one a new album in my singer-songwriter guise (Warmer - Wooden Box With Strings), the other an album of improvisations with Jon Drummond, Holly Harrison and Brendan Smyly (Giraffe Quartet & Duets). I'll discuss the creative and production processes of both.
