NICE to see you, Here IS ME.
You've reached the website of composer/musician, Brandon A. Lopez, deemed by the Village Voice, "The Ubiquitous".
He was born and raised in the splendors of Northwestern New Jersey, and it was there that he got his first hit of the musical discipline. His current output is a result of it.
He's had the pleasures of working with many of the world's luminary weirdos. Here's a list: Nate Wooley, William Parker, Chris Corsano, Justice Yeldham, Weasel Walter, Peter Evans, Tyshawn Sorey, Gerald Cleaver, Ingrid Laubrock, Tom Rainey, Tony Malaby, Paul Lytton, Mette Rasmussen, Jooklo Duo, Michael Foster, Leila Bordreuil, Jaimie Branch, Joe Morris, Brandon Seabrook, Cactus Truck, John Dykeman, Daniel Carter, and many others.
He's currently leads a trio dubbed "The Mess", another one called the Brandon Lopez Trio, works as a soloist and is formerly/currently/latterly writing more and more music. He may play some it sometime soon (see "gigs").
Like many musicians of the period, he attended conservatory. It was New England Conservatory.
