Winter is Coming…

8 Sep

I’m going to be taking some time off from gigging after the beginning of October so I’ll have plenty of time for mix and remix projects. Even some mastering. I’ve got a few awesome things on the burner, but please get in touch if you’ve got a project. We can make something happen!

2017 Update

25 Jan

The new Daydream Machine record is currently being pressed and will be for sale in March. Dig this:

And preorder here: The Show Must Not Go On

 

The new studio is still being built, so it’s been a lot of video work lately. The above Daydream video, a few for Hollow Sidewalks and one for New Speedway.

 

Have a few remix projects on the horizon, but I am looking forward to getting back in the studio! Daydream Machine is heading out in late March with Souvenir Driver, look for us on the west coast!

It’s been a while…

5 May

But things are coming back swinging! About to wrap up the sophomore albums by Hollow Sidewalks and Hawkeye. Then it’s time to track the next Daydream Machine record with Greg Williams  (of Dandy Warhols- Thirteen Tales fame) before I take the basic tracks and transform them into the sophomore album from Daydream. I can promise, this one is going new places! Also had the pleasure of tracking Jsun Atoms (the Upsidedown, Daydream Machine, PIA) for a collaboration with members of Blue Oyster Cult and Hawkwind!

Hope to have some new sounds up soon. I am now running sessions at Revolver on a project by project basis. The new Hollow Sidewalks was recorded and mixed by me where as the majority of the Hawkeye record was tracked by Collin Hegna with additional tracking and mixing by me.

In other news, I’ll soon have a professionally designed project studio up here in the west hills with a large iso room and an open tracking/mixing room.

So it’s that time again, as I wrap these two records, I’m looking for another. Daydream starts tracking in mid June,  giving me plenty of time to start something new. Be in touch!

Something Evol recorded last year. I suppose it is now labeled as a demo due to several line up changes. Still pretty happy with it though!

William S. Burroughs on Creativity | Brain Pickings

7 Feb

Coming a few days after Bill’s birthday, a fellow mad Aquarius… I thought this fit well with Sir Eno’s words I posted earlier.

” The word “should” should never arise — there is no such concept as “should” with regard to art. . . .

One very important aspect of art is that it makes people aware of what they know and don’t know they know. . . . Once the breakthrough is made, there is a permanent expansion of awareness. But there is always a reaction of rage, of outrage, at the first breakthrough. . . . So the artist, then, expands awareness. And once the breakthrough is made, this becomes part of the general awareness.”

19 Brian Eno Quotes for Studio Inspiration

6 Feb

“Repetition doesn’t really exist.

As far as your mind is concerned, nothing happens the same twice, even if in every technical sense, the thing is identical. Your perception is constantly shifting. It doesn’t stay in one place.”
