Live looping – A Happy Future music video

Life had gotten a little crappy there for a bit. Really didn’t record any music in the last 8 months. Finally moved into a new place and have the studio set up again. A quick looping improv idea turned into a song. This is the second take. Everything performed and recorded live. 🙂 buy  steal […]

All new music sucks

I’ve been hearing a lot of people talk about how all new music sucks. “Skrillex is a hack with no musical talent.” “A kid can’t make a great sounding album with GarageBand.” “Nobody knows how to play an instrument anymore.” Maybe it’s a fear of change? Maybe new music doesn’t have the same nostalgia of music you listened […]

Life is Easy [live looping]

I’ve really been a live looping mode for the last few weeks. This was recorded last night—it started off as an improvised vocal part that morphed into a song. Did a few takes, I think this one is the best. All sounds are created and recorded live, nothing here is prerecorded. 🙂 buy  steal [mp3j […]

Souls

Maybe the body contains two “souls”… your own, and that of a stranger who controls all of your involuntary functions… heartbeat, breathing, circulation, healing. And while you’re alive you both have no idea the other is there. And when you die, you finally get to meet this stranger that has worked with you to keep […]

Frenemies – [Live Looping with Mobius]

I got up this morning and had a new looping song idea pop into my head. Just put together this live looping video today. Every sound was recorded live, nothing prerecorded. Gear list below if you’re interested.  Also you love my unkempt hair. Maybe I should invest in a comb. Or some hats. Fancy hats. […]

Why does YouTube make it so hard to monetize my videos?

YouTube invited me to take part in their monetization program several months back.  As someone that self-publishes all of my own music and videos without the help (or burden) of a record label, this seemed like a good way to earn a few extra bucks a month. I was hesitant to place ads on my videos, but I figured I could roll […]
