|What's In the Projects
WALKER IN THE SKY
is my current design theme and the musical concept follows.
Currently I have clips here: soundcloud.com/WalkerInTheSky
Plans are in the works for releasing an EP by mid summer, however I provided
some short tracks and ideas for musicians to collaborate within this
a piano improvisational piece that was from head-to-fingers in one hours
sitting. There are a few ideas I used as concepts but for the most part all of
it is sporadic on purpose. Plans for this project is to create individual
songs to each random piece that is played. The name "NEYEN" came to me
in a dream and so I dubbed this project the title. After research I found it
stands for "Breath" in Chilean. The idea came to me in a spiritual
search for answers and not knowing where to look - I closed my eyes and looked inward.
Hence the N EYE N. There is great vision and meaning behind this title and I
look forward to continuing my work on this project.
DISCO MOJO (AKA Snort Monkey '08) is my very first written, self-produced, and engineered
(unofficially released) album. I cannot remember exactly how it started,
but I know I wanted to complete a theme-based album.
I modeled the sound after my favorite band
at the time QOTSA, using the driving beats of Dave Grohl one of my
favorite drummers, and my interpretation of the sounds of Josh Homme.
Looking back, I think at the time, this was
a great moment of pride for me-and something to prove to myself. I wanted
to prove I could create something beautiful without a great big studio to
make something I could appreciate. I think I did pretty well considering
the production equipment started and completed with Fruity Loops, Cool
Edit Pro, on a used Dell Optiplex PC.
There are plenty of links and music to be found here that will take you
all over my journey of music. I hope you enjoy!
Thank you for stopping by
