Awesome Recording Studios

Awesome Recording Studios

  I love looking at pictures of recording studios- professional, or home, or otherwise. In fact I even have a pinterest board full of them. There are some truly remarkable studios out there. But even various home studios have some ingenious ideas for dealing with ergonomic oddities. I’ve had to wrestle with some of those […]

A Bit of Ridiculousness

A Bit of Ridiculousness

It seems to me lately that there has been a lot of silly copyright lawsuits. Plagiarism certainly happens. And everyone has the right to own their work and not be stolen from. But I read an article about how Madonna faced a lawsuit where someone- 25 or so years later BTW- was suing her for […]

Trip to the Southwest US

Trip to the Southwest US

Well, I haven’t posted in a while…because I was away. So I decided to post a few pics from our trip. No, it’s not directly related to music. But… it’s important to creativity to do new things, see new places, and have new experiences. One time at a Q&A with Yo Yo Ma, someone asked […]

Another New Dance Track!!

Another New Dance Track!!

Here’s yet another dance track….I’ve been mixing like crazy! Dance is what I’ve been experimenting with lately. There’s always a need for dance music. And it’s fun! But I’ve also realized there’s room for experimentation within the genre. It’s not just club music. To fuse other genres in it, to try a mix of electronic and acoustic instrumentation, to expand lyrical […]

Dance/EDM track

Dance/EDM track

Another new dance track here! “October” has peaks and valleys, and a different lyrical theme than my last dance track. The last one was just get out on the floor and dance! This one starts slower, with a gradual build, and it has peaks and valleys. Oh- and it’s about love. 🙂 How about that? As […]

Another Loss

Another Loss

Well, music has lost another icon, Prince. Not that I’ve ever been a fan, but still, he greatly influenced modern music. His trademark high guitar licks over pop music are still a popular style even today. I greatly admired his work style though. I read an article once about how he worked on his tracks. […]

Creativity From Habits

Creativity From Habits

This weekend I was perusing a few sample books on music production. One of the commonalities was the value of habits and creativity. It seems almost counterintuitive, like creativity should just be spontaneous. But I’ve learned from personal experience that is not the case. Somehow knowing that you’re going to sit down at a certain […]

New EDM Track!

New EDM Track!

Well, it’s taken a while, but finally my new track is done. “Turn Up the Night” EDM/pop, uptempo, fun. Mixing this one took longer than usual, because I was trying some new techniques. But I think the end result is worth it. 🙂 Hope you like it!   Are you an artist that needs some […]

58th #Grammys 2016

58th #Grammys 2016

This year’s Grammy awards! Maybe not the best ever, but in my mind it had some good points. First the tributes: I thought the Lady Gaga David Bowie tribute was fantastic. She was the perfect person to do it- I think they came from the same planet. But her energy was palpable and infused the […]
