    The Third Letter

    Little Mama is dying. I wrote her some letters, and Milena told me she read them to her, and that she told everyone to make plans to go to Ft Worth for the big art opening in December. That makes me happy, to know that she wants to go. That project was a big one […]

  • Off the Farm 2012: Once Again, Old is New, and New, Old.

    Off the Farm 2012 is the latest incarnation of Dell Little’s annual mixtape-nee-CD-nee-mp3 collection, which continues with the series’ down-home, upbeat groove. I love this year’s cover: a conductor of what seems to be a radio orchestra, of course from the 30s or 40s or 50s. There’s a funny kind of irony to Dell’s choice of such […]

  • Venus Transit

  • Psychedemia Podcast Jingle: “happyMorning”

    2012-07-27: Android Jones is one of the primary visual artists for Psychedemia. He’s known for his spiritual/techno/futuristic creations, and I was focusing on his work when I created this bubbly “ancient tribal funk” jingle for the Psychedemia Podcast. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Psychedemia-Podcast/121569081316731 2012-06-19: Daniel said they LOVE it, so it’s a wrap! I just made sure there were […]

  • Motherland

    Created on my 2004 MacMini in 2007, using Mackie Tracktion v2, with 4 instances of Spectrasonics Atmosphere softsynth. Composed during a particularly inspired time in my life, while I was working with Jon Anderson (of Yes) on several voice projects. While not a lot came from my collaborations with Jon, I did get this track […]

  • Some Thoughts on Music Production/Composition/Software

    Been working on an “Electronica” piece in GarageBand… my first real foray into dance music. I mean, it’s rather upbeat, although in D minor, so not too “happy” sounding. Started from a really cool patch in Korg Legacy– um “Cell”, which is a real cool area where you combine like three different patches from the […]

  • “Singing the World:” Bridging Disparities via the Phenomenon of Music

    I am fascinated with music. It intrigues me intellectually and engages me physically. It resonates across many different areas of my life, and I am extremely interested in experiencing life to the fullest, which is why I also chose to go into a graduate-level Interdisciplinary Arts program rather than concentrating on a single discipline such […]
