Howdy,
Happy Spring! Some great shows and events coming up.
Stratospheerius just tracked two new songs in the studio. One is called “Parallel Reality,” which is my composition, and the other, “Affluenza,” is our drummer Lucy’s first writing contribution to the band! Hope to have ’em ready by the summer, but our long-term plan is to be perpetually writing and recording and coming out with new music, and we will be releasing a new single every three months or so, so stay tuned…
Here’s what’s next…

NEW STRATOSPHEERIUS SINGLE, “GUILTY OF INNOCENCE,” AVAILABLE NOW

GOI cover

Ladies and Gentlemen,
The new single by Stratospheerius, “Guilty of Innocence,” is now officially available for streaming and downloads. Going for a retro new wave Police/Talking Heads sort of vibe on this one, with mad electric fiddle spray painted all over the track.
Inspired by a recent stint in jury duty. A commentary on how we are all just trying to save ourselves and refuse to take responsibility for our actions, and look the other way when injustice is being committed.
The cover features the debut artwork of my 6-year old son, Max Deninzon.
Stream or download for $1. Enjoy!

I am honored to appear on the new CD by the progressive band Tiles. This CD also features Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull, legendary jazz guitarist Mike Stern, and drummer Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater).

Joe Deninzon to give “3D Rock” Clinic at ASTA (American String Teacher’s Association) Conference in Salt Lake City.
www.astaweb.com
Special thanks to D’Addario for Sponsoring this clinic.

This class explores the concept of “Three- dimentional playing” in the context of a rock arrangement and how all three dimensions inform the musical choices one makes. Using recordings of well-known rock and pop songs, we simulate a scenario where you are asked to join that band and given a blank canvas on which to add your part. This class follows the thought process behind being more than just a player, but a “sonic architect.

I am excited to announce that I will be returning again to the Mark Wood Rofck Orchestra Camp this summer!
Although the focus of the camp is to educate and inspire string players to “plug in” and break out of the classical box, this camp is NOT just for string players. Singers and all instrumentalists are welcome! Topics covered are arranging, theory, alternative techniques, recording technology, stage presence, music business, and much more…. plus plenty of opportunities to perform and blow everyone away!
Here is a photo of me last year performing with my illustrious colleagues, violinist Tracy Silverman, violist David Wallace, drummer/multi-instrumentalist Matt Vanacoro, and cellist Lucas Shorgren .

OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2013 NEWS FOR VIOLINIST/VOCALIST JOE DENINZON AND STRATOSPHEERIUS

 JD MWROC 2013
Folks,
Hope you’re having a great fall season! August and September were jam-packed! We had an incredible fundraiser on September 26th at one of our favorite venues, the Shrine in NYC. First of all, I want to thank all the musicians, volunteers, staff,  and people who came out to support our dear friend David Gotay in his battle with Cancer. We raised over $2000 in one night! It was an evening full of love and great music. Performing alongside Stratospheeius were Sound Liberation Erbium, Resolution 15, and Dapp Theory.  Here are some photos from the event:

Joe Deninzon to teach/perform at Michigan Alternative Styles day

I will be artist/clinician in residence at the first annual Michigan Alternative Styles Day on Saturday, November 9th at East Lansing’s MacDonald Middle School.
A full day will be spent teaching young string players how to rock out, culminating with the MSBOA ROCK orchestra performing my arrangements of music by Adele, Guns N Roses, Jimi Hendrix, and my original compositions.

Reviews of Stratospheerius’ “The Next World”

nextworldcover

Our latest CD, “The Next World,” reached number 10 on the national Jamband charts and has been continuously receiving nationwide airplay and rave reviews.

Here is what other critics have been saying about the “The Next World”:

“(Stratospheerius) once again shows the world that Russians and Americans can make beautiful and exciting music together …A thrilling array of songs that run the gamut from complex prog tunes to simple ballads. “The Next World” is an electrifying album, guaranteed to take you into the stratosphere and beyond…”
-Wildman Steve

You just can’t go wrong with this outfit. Nor can you assume what you are going to hear when they release a new disc. While the fusion elements of previous releases are still present, this one has more pure rock in it, too. Frankly, this might be the best Stratospheerius disc yet!”
-G.W Hill

“Every member plays with passion and invention. Budynek is tight and bright in rhythm mode and soars when the song calls for it. Bishop is a flat out low-end monster and perfectly matched with the fiery Padmore. She is that drummer every musician wants in their ensemble: a player that can blow your mind one moment, then tenderly hold your hand the next. As for Deninzon – the sounds he gets out of that violin are inhuman. His speed, precision, color, and character are just off the charts!”
-Jon Wilcox

“A leading contender for the best rock album of 2012… Joe Deninzon’s dazzling violin solos, creative loops and effects areclearly spectacular and demonstrate that he is one of the most talented instrumentalists in the current rock scene. ”
-Angel Romero

“Tightly crafted studio pieces including intricately produced vocal articulations, electronic effects, and multi-tracked instrumentation…It’s an album with bright, vibrant tones from four players who aren’t competing, but rather congealing.”
-Wessley Britton
