“Go Underneath” [video song] – Univox drum machine, Strymon El Capistan and blueSky

August 29, 2010    
State Shirt    

I recently got to borrow an old-school Univox drum machine. It’s strange and unique. Where else can you get volume sliders for Quijada, Guido AND Tambourine. Not only does it have patterns for Mambo, Rumba and Bossanova, but many others including Merinque, Beguine and Habanera. What more could you want? I felt like making some droning noise so I ran the Univox through my Strymon El Capistan and blueSky reverb pedals. I…    read more

Hey. I just finished recording a cover of “Souvenir” by OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark). I’d consider this mix a “beta” mix, but it’s pretty close.

Ok. So this week got a little bit busy and I wasn’t able to complete a new song for my song-a-week challenge. But I’ll make up for it by posting TWO (count ’em, two) songs from the archives that haven’t ever really been officially “released”. Both of these are collaborations that I did with other artists. hope you like ’em. First up is Hostess Mostess’ “Ease Up on the Drugs”. Last year,…    read more

Here is a looping improv I recorded yesterday. My live setup is constantly evolving, but I do tend to keep a few things as part of my basic arsenal: two Gibson/Oberheim Echoplex Digital Pro units, a Line 6 DL4 delay modeler and expression pedal, Line 6 AM4, Boss DF-2, Line 6 Echo Park, el cheapo Tapco mixer, and a Behringer FCB1010. This video has a pedal/foot cam for the people who have…    read more 

Magnetic particles encased in plastic

Over the last year or so I’ve been trying to get rid of stuff. Stuff I never look at, stuff I don’t need, stuff that’s just sitting in a box. After a while it just starts to feel like extra weight, like a burden. Maybe with the exception of the instruments in my studio, I don’t really want to own much of anything at all. I’ve had weird dreams that on the…    read more
