Two pieces of news

Posted on

Hey all. Long time since I posted. Things are still very active in the background. However, let’s get some news out of the way.

Firstly, one of my aunts passed away yesterday. This is never an easy time for the family, but I choose to try to not dwell on the pain and instead on the happy memories. My fondest memory of my aunt was during one of our visits when I was a small child. We just finished dinner with our Nana; we then went downstairs to my aunt’s apartment, and she sat us on her couch and gave us Stella D’oro cookies. The real, Italian ones that you get in New York. I’ll never forget that day. I think from that day on I always knew her as Aunt Cookie.

Second, I’m nearing completion of another studio album. This album is completely new, original material. I’m 10 tracks in, with probably another 2 to go. I’ll be posting clips up soon, as well as a possible website redesign.

Stay tuned. More to come.

Growing the music

Posted on

I’ve been creating music using my synth workstation, the Yamaha Motif XS 8, for the past 7 years. It has served me well. I’ve learned the ins and outs of creating, meshing, and melding the sounds to get the exact reflection of what I feel, and to date I’ve been able to do just that without any external plugin or other instrument.

As with anything, you gradually outgrow the capabilities that you start with. Now begins the most radical shift in my music creation.

My signature sound is and always be a Yamaha, whether it be a C7 or a CFIII. How I arrive at that sound, however, will change. I have been vetting a number of powerful plugins that will truly usher my music into a new chapter, and eliminating my biggest obstacle: the dreaded polyphony.

6 tracks have already been laid for the new album. I may just shorten it rather than create a standard album of 10+ tracks and call it a release as-is, because I plan to build a full, proper studio to compliment my shift in music. This will ensure that you and I get nothing but the best, and that you hear exactly what the true nature and feeling of what I intend you to hear. This is what I call “growing the music”.

The wait will be worth it, so just have a little more patience. Great things coming soon. Don’t forget to listen to all my music here, and if you like it buy it, and let your friends listen too!

Until next time!

Update

Posted on Updated on

Been a while since I posted; been very busy, a lot has gone on in between now and the last time I wrote.

In between then, I’ve been busy upgrading my studio. New equipment, studio monitors, power racks, sound effects plugins and libraries. It takes a while to get them all set up and for you to get used to them. That being said, I still have a few more things to go, and I’ll be done.

All the while, I have not stopped making music. I am again 5 songs into a brand new album. So far, this is no deviation from my original style. It’s “more of the same”, but better. I’m quite sure you all will like it. Maybe soon I will post a clip or two for you to listen to.

In the meantime, I’m glad to see that everyone is enjoying my previous album efforts, like If You Were Here and One And Only. I’m happy to report that my music is indeed getting playtime worldwide, to include Japan, South Korea, Australia, and South America, just to name a few. It means a lot to me, and I hope that my music is changing someone’s life for the better. Even just one is enough for me.

Until next time!
