A Hole In The Night
Mood:  on fire
Now Playing: Mew - Am I Wry? No. (again...)
Topic: Works In Progress
WOW!! I am doing some amazing things! What I mean is, I am taking a little break from recording one of those "epic tale" types of songs. Of course, those boys from Mew have been playing inside my head for the last several weeks, and I'm now starting to hit a stride from listening to them. This is one of those magical times!! I'm on a roll. It's really hard for me right now to put into words what I want to say because I'm in such a creative state. Paulfoster called it Turbo. I call it AMAZING...This song is currently titled "A Hole In The Night" and I am writing it as I go. It's over 6 minutes long right now, and the protagonist has just now entered the first world he will encounter. It's just a long tale of his adventures in this other universe that actually envelops our own. A sci-fi story of sorts. Very definitely doing that modern progressive thing! Lots of modular synthesizer, Mellotron, and Rhodes, but with drum machines and crazy modern sounds. Cool chord/tempo/time sig. changes! This thing is going to be great!

Did I mention that I'm obsessed with Mellotrons?
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: Genesis - A Trick Of The Tail
Topic: Works In Progress
Yes, my current obsession is with the Mellotron. It has been going on for a couple of years, but it's getting more and more intense. If Mellotrons were people, they'd all have restraining orders against me.
Anyway, on to buisness.

Lots of things:
1. My new album is not Pandemic. I have another one newer than that now, called 1223. Because I did it in one day, 12/23/2005. This link should work later today, or tomorrow. You can read all the fascinating details. How's that for "no fanfare"?

2. Synthesizers.com now has an artist page for me. Complete with pretentious (but thankfully short) biography in third-person, picture of me throwing myself onto my modular synthesizer, and link to my main page. It's on the same link as the other link was. Or, go here:

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. Please to be bearing with me as I making the happy email spider matrix bookpage.

PS - I love Mellotrons.

Complete
Mood:  cool
Now Playing: Radiohead - Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors
Topic: Works In Progress
Hello everyone,
the experimental project is completely finished, with titles and art and everything. I'm quite pleased with it.
If you're interested, you can read about it here. I'm going to go create that page right now. Bear with me. It may not be finished when you get to it. But I will finish it.

Tied to a tree and hanging off the edge of a cliff
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: The Who - 905
Topic: Works In Progress
I'm almost finished with the recording phase of my new experimental record. I would feel more of a sense of completion if I had adhered to my usual method of mixing as I complete tracking, but I've left most of it until last this time.
I'm about 90% finished recording, and about 40% finished mixing.
I created a very interesting piece the other night, a freely improvised modular synth-fest which is mostly aleatory/atonal in nature. I was very pleased with the end product. It's now completely finished.
Another thing that I normally do that I haven't done this time is naming the pieces. I sometimes come up with a clever name and a whimsical theme just springs forth from that name. I'm very big on titles. Anyway, this time I wanted the music to come forth on its own, with nothing to really lead it in one direction or another. I'll probably come up with titles last.

**MORE TO COME**

Experiments in the Audio Nebula
Mood:  not sure
Now Playing: The Beatles - Past Masters, vol. 2
Topic: Works In Progress
You know, I'm beginning to rediscover what made me like the Beatles in the first place. Sure, it's the songs, it's the moods, but really, for me, the engineering of those records is what grabs me. When I read The Beatles Recording Sessions I was changed forever in my working habits in the studio. I think of those sessions often when I'm recording.
About recording. My new experimental project is nearing completion. Instead of making this big potpourri/conglomeration type of record, I've really been concentrating on a particular set of parameters.
-No vocals
-as few digital sound sources as possible (only on a couple of tracks)
-All new recordings (no unreleased backlog stuff)
-Trying to use the modular synthesizer as much as possible

There are a couple of things that defy these rules, but I've been fairly consistent so far. Some of the tracks consist of solo synthesizer performances or tape playbacks which are later manipulated with the .com modular and/or the Space Echo.

**STAY TUNED**
