Creative roadblock? Simplify. Add deadline. Then Fight!

May 1, 2014

When you’re inspired to create something, and there is some mental roadblock keeping you from executing on your inspiration, I’ve always found it’s helpful to simplify. Reduce the number of options to you. Force yourself to create something with just a handful of tools. Or just one tool. Just one color. One instrument. One theme. And it’s helpful to have a unmovable deadline, forcing you to make creative decisions quickly. Looking back,…    read more 

On Top of a Hill – live looping improv / demo

March 10, 2014

Here’s a song that I’d consider, using music industry vernacular, a “demo”. I wanted to start out with a completely ridiculous sound and try to turn it into a song. This is the result. Maybe this will turn into an album track, I’m not sure yet. Hope you enjoy checking out this work in progress. 🙂 buy steal Gear list if you’re interested: Circular Labs Mobius looping software on my Macbook Pro….    read more

Life had gotten a little crappy there for a bit. Really didn’t record any music in the last 8 months. Finally moved into a new place and have the studio set up again. A quick looping improv idea turned into a song. This is the second take. Everything performed and recorded live. 🙂 buy  steal [mp3j track=”A Happy Future@http://stateshirt.com/audio/videosongs/stateshirt_ahappyfuture.mp3″ flip=”y”] Lyrics: Calm down, you don’t need to worry.

Life is Easy [live looping]

I’ve really been a live looping mode for the last few weeks. This was recorded last night—it started off as an improvised vocal part that morphed into a song. Did a few takes, I think this one is the best. All sounds are created and recorded live, nothing here is prerecorded. 🙂 buy  steal [mp3j track=”Life is Easy@http://stateshirt.com/audio/videosongs/stateshirt_lifeiseasy.mp3″ flip=”y”] Lyrics: you hurt the ones you love you raped the ones you love…    read more

I got up this morning and had a new looping song idea pop into my head. Just put together this live looping video today. Every sound was recorded live, nothing prerecorded. Gear list below if you’re interested.  Also you love my unkempt hair. Maybe I should invest in a comb. Or some hats. Fancy hats.
