The work that Simple Focus does is really top notch! I was thrilled to be part of this project.Plus it was the perfect opportunity to pull out the ukulele!
Check out the video for “Eye Tracking Google Maps.” I composed the music. My inspirations for this project were the work of Mark Mothersbaugh and the 909 drum machine.
So before I could finish the studio I get two gigs. The first was to score a parody monologue scene in an upcoming movie based in Western Kentucky. The other was scoring a promotional video for a web company. The two bits of music probably couldn’t be more different (Hint: one is terrifying with cello scrapes and all minor seconds, while the other is ukulele and chimes in a happy 6-8.) As soon as they are announced or released, I will post them!
This weekend I set up to record drums and bass for the band I play in, Karass. We recorded in a huge auto garage filled with import cars (very funny)
I finally had a chance to use our newly modded Behringer ADA8000 by the folks at Black Lion Audio and the newly modded Rode NT1As by the folks at Oktava Mod . The tracks sound BIG and will need very little processing. I couldn’t be happier with how this is turning out. Next are time edits in PT.
Back from a trip around the country. My wife and I took an Amtrak train trip and stopped in Chicago, Glacier National Park, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Denver.
We saw family, friends, and a ton of new places we’d never been. We stayed at hostels and tried the site airbnb.com for the first time. It was a great experience. It saved us a ton of money, gave us a local resource who new the area, and was cozier than staying in a hotel. What did we do with all the money we saved with lodging? We spent it on lots of great food and even more great beer!
Heading home meant finishing the studio. The studio is now almost done; I am hanging trim today and next week the insulation arrives so I can build sound absorbers. Pictures of the finished studio coming next week!
The local NPR station in Louisville, WFPL, called out to local musicians for instrumental tracks to be used as sound beds for all sorts of random things. They chose a piece by me
and two tracks by my band Karass off of our most recent EP, Imponderable Bloom.
I’ve heard both already, and my piece will also be used for the new program Unbound, a show of short fiction read by the authors.
I just got back my Rode NT1-A mics from Michael Joly Mods! I can’t wait to finish this studio so I can start tracking with these beauties!
After about two years of patiently waiting I finally got this address. Keep checking for updates!
