Currently Hallock is exploring the world of experimental music, as well as writing music for indie films, stage, and dance. Following in the footsteps of Phillip Glass and John Cage, he creates music using both traditional and nontraditional instruments. Some of his compositions include the use of cups, body percussion, spoons, electronic percussion, and anything else within reach. As a result of his eclectic explorations, Hallock has become a regular performer as a drummer, marimba player, composer, and clinician in the Pacific Northwest.
Hallock just released Project 213’s debut c.d. entitled Fish Tales, as well as the soundtrack to the local indie movie entitled “Cannibals”. Both are available at your favorite internet music site.
