January 3, 2017: The first release of 2017 is wonderful remix I’ve had the opportunity to do for the artist hdot (aka Hugh Reid) called ‘Fusion Core’.

 

December 22, 2016: I decided to attempt an electro-industrial remix because I sometimes get nostalgic for that sound. The mix ended up being more difficult than I’d expected.

 

December 7, 2016: This song was built around an arpeggiator groove that I sampled from a Timber Wolf used in a Facebook jam session.

 

March 2, 2016: Last week I completed the remix of MotorHome Music’s (MHM) single ‘Break Me Off’. It was an interesting challenge. I like how far away from the original song the mix became while underneath, the original elements of the song clearly remained.

 

February 2, 2016: I sketched out this song the other day while thinking about Seattle. I needed to take a break from mixing the album I’m working on, so I decided to spend the day recording something different to keep my enthusiasm up. It also gave me a chance to try out a trance-gate I put together as a spot effect.

 

January 14, 2016: Here’s a little techno jam featuring the Korg BeatBoy, Volca Keys, and Volca Bass. It demonstrates how the Korg BeatBoy guitar tuner can be used as an instrument in a tabletop synthesizer setup.

 

November 12, 2015: Faraday Cage – Music Video. Faraday Cage is a song featured on the upcoming Meta Micro EP called .123.58 – It’s a thematic techno-trance set based on the Fibonacci Sequence and other number patterns. The entire set is performed at 123.58 beats per minute.

 

November 10, 2015: Echo String – Music Improvisation. I needed to test a reverb setup and the Zoom MS-100BT effects pedal, so I went ahead and pressed the record button. This is an improvisational take I made to have some real-world data to test against. I know that sounds kind of uninspired, but I like how it turned out.

 

August 23, 2015: Lab Track – Genotype. This is the first track to come out of the year-long $2300 My Rack life experiment that isn’t a simple product demo. It’s a pretty good indication of where this experiment’s music creation and production techniques are leading me.

 

July 20, 2015: My demonstration of the Fluxamasynth synthesizer in real-world use. The Arduino hosting the Fluxamasynth shield has been loaded with Moco for LUFA firmware so that it’ll behave as a USB-MIDI compliant device.

 

June 18, 2015: If you’re working with MIDI hardware, eventually you’ll need some way to connect all your instruments together. The Intelligent Mate MIDIBOX 4×4 is a MIDI interface offering flexible signal routings and dependable connections to keep your music productions moving forward.

 

June 16, 2015: Meet the Korg Beatboy, the pocket rhythm machine pretending to be a guitar tuner. It may be a Guitar practice tool to some, but on an Electronic Musician’s table-top, it’s capable of a lot more.

 

June 15, 2015: The Gakken SX-150 MII is a fun and inexpensive analog synthesizer that’s great for learning the basics of synth sound creation and for adding some quirky noises to your musical productions.

 

June 7, 2015: This is the story a waveform that dreams of becoming a particle so it can join the organized grid. The waveform perfects itself, and by doing so, understands that it’s been both a particle and waveform all along.

 

May 14, 2015: An overview showing how to use the Arturia Beatstep with a Meeblip Anode synthesizer. This video demonstrates how simple it is to connect Arturia’s Beatstep as a stand-alone controller for playing and sequencing MIDI instruments. Featuring the Arturia Beatstep, Meeblip Anode, and Korg Volca Keys.

May 3, 2015: This track was put together while testing one of my rack configurations. There’s several ways to route everything, ranging from mostly computer hosted to a completely MIDI and CV driven ‘Table-Top’ style. You can see: Arturia KeyLab 25, SparkLE, Beatstep, Korg Volca Bass & Volca Keys, Gakken SX-150 Mark II, Korg Beatboy, Novation Launchpad Mini, Mackie ProFX8 Mixer‎, Zoom MS-100BT MultiStomp, and a Behringer MICROMIX MX400.
