Fourth 4TH

Fourth attempt to make this sound right.. at least to me. Abandoned the nostalgia of lifting original tracks from 90s cassette, remade and remixed the vast majority. At least it can be heard now and maybe I can live with it… Original info here. The indulgences of the amateur, nothing ever really need’s to be [...]

Some mood settled in, I was playing with the boxes, ya know, and the knobs on the boxes, then a loop went sideways and stayed there. Some weeks later  here we are. This concludes the english language portion of the presentation. No video, but highest quality audio: Soundcloud- West Winter Meridiem The same Youtube video with still image above, [...]

I started this a few months back. My friend Tim Orden invited me to collaborate on a conceptual film, dance, music piece called Anthropocene. Some elements of what I had started seemed perfect and with some variation was submitted to him. As this was completed it became variations in itself, so I stole Tim’s title. [...]

4TH- remixed

The short story- Some grungy riff rock I wrote in the 90s. Lifted the guitar tracks off an old cassette and re-contextualized the whole thing… The long story- Enough talk No video, but highest quality audio: Soundcloud- 4TH The same Youtube video with still image above, hosted at Fandalism: Fandalism- 4TH     All posted [...]

Memory Wind

the short story- another casual video/music excerize that got out of hand, not unlike July Rain. Like it, I did not preconcieve it nor can catagorize the result. I enjoyed making it.   No video, but highest quality audio: Soundcloud- Memory Wind The same Youtube video above, hosted at Fandalism: Fandalism- Memory Wind   The long story- [...]

February Afternoon

  The short version- Several minutes of guitar noodling over a simple drum beat, testing a recording plugin. Some slight editing, completed a composition of sorts, finessed drums, added bass and keyboards, and effects. No video, but highest quality audio: Soundcloud- February Afternoon Still Image, adequate audio: Youtube- February Afternoon The same Youtube video, hosted [...]

July Rain

The short version- A piece intended as background, relaxation, or environment that evolved over a three year period, all based on rain. If the sound of rain depresses you please take a pass! Nothing about the music, or the imagery, is every dramatic or demanding of attention. This is not what I would present as [...]

I posted a piece called Gumby Bass that was the start of what became this.. called Lemurs. While finalizing the mix I sent it to a friend for input, his immediate reply was “good god man, are you being medicated?!?!???!?!!?!?!?!!?!?!?!??!?!??!?”. I know it’s lunacy, if you think there is something wrong with my brain, that’s [...]

We met years ago, doing annual report work together, his firm, Leimer Cross Design, did high level award winning corporate work, for which I was fortunate [...]

Soundcloud is also easy to access, and has excellent file quality. There is also a smartphone app if you like. Fandalism is primarily a musicians social music sharing network, like Facebook it’s [...]
