Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color.
-W.S. Merwin

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 & 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 & forages for mushrooms around his home in the forest. An advocate for those forgotten & silenced by society, Dominic directs arkestras & explores restorative practices with at-risk populations. [dominic-schaner.bandcamp.com]
