Hypnotism! (Dream Beats) 


Chill...

Do you know what the prearranged signal is?

A few moments ago you were hypnotised and told that shortly after awakening, you would be given a signal, which would put you back to sleep again.

Chill...

Now do you remember? You're awake, aren't you?

A few moments after you have awakened, I shall rap like this...

Interstellar Alignment ๐Ÿช (MPC One Loops) 


Interstellar Alignment ๐Ÿช

Step into the stars with this beat!

I'm back with the Apache Blackgrass. Had a quick stop on the left coast to watch the waves decay. Now I'm back at the control deck locked in with the MPC One, looking out a window facing west towards the Rocky Mountains. Using my imagination to visualize the whole house surrounding me is a spaceship traveling far. Come along for the journey!

Higher Calling (Telephone Loops) 



Phone is ringing, OH MY GOD

Telephone backgrounds on a clear day.

The other day I bought a golden MPC One. The last MPC I had was a 1000 model, and it has been out of commision for several years. The 1000 had grey pads. These new MPCs have buttons that light up in a multitude of colors. It speaks to the early 90s translucent phone with green light up buttons side of me, and I like that.

Here's a fun loopable section of the first beat I made on the new MPC One!

EarthBound ๐ŸŒ Home Sweet Home [Spatialized Mix] 

Revitalizing synthesizer textures to guide you toward your sanctuary.

We grow up, we drift apart, we can no longer go back. Yet somehow, the music carries us there. Isn't it nice to be home again?

This is my take on "Home Sweet Home" from the 1994 Super Nintendo game EarthBound (Mother 2).

There are some instances of head-related transfer function (HRTF) spatialization techniques within this mix. Headphones are recommended to best experience the expanded stereo properties of this mixing technique.

EarthBound ๐ŸŒ Paula's Theme [Spatialized Mix] 

This is my take on "Paula's Theme" from the 1994 Super Nintendo game EarthBound (Mother 2).

I always wondered what that crunchy sound in the song was. Turns out, it's a triggered sample of a cash register!

Old School 80s BMX Bike Footage โœจ๐Ÿšดโœจ Compilation 


Short compilation of 80s era BMX bike footage.

Other Shores, Other Worlds ๐ŸŒŽ 



"Other Shores, Other Worlds" is a new song, but the familiar feeling it evokes is drawing from a forever cycling vibration the cosmos are sending out even right now, at this very moment.

Composed on a long lost to time, recently resurrected Synergy I synthesizer. In its heyday, this unique instrument was used extensively by music icon Wendy Carlos, whose credits include film scoring for Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" and "A Clockwork Orange," as well as "TRON." The Synergy was a contemporary of the Nintendo Entertainment System, and sure enough, sounds are loaded onto the synthesizer via old school video-game style cartridges.ย 

Dr. Andonut's Lab (EarthBound Music) Acoustic Guitar Version 


This is "Dr. Andonut's Lab" from the Super Nintendo game Earthbound (MOTHER 2) soundtrack, only it's entirely played on acoustic guitar.

Extended to 30 minutes in length for studying, meditation, and / or zone out purposes.

At the beginning, you hear me pluck the opening chord. An acoustic guitar can't sustain infinitely, so I ran the plucked chord through a compressor with a long release and rode the gain dial, then I duplicated the resulting processed chord, continuously adding fades to make the chord sustain throughout. I was surprised how much the resulting sound resembled an organ drone. If you listen closely, you can hear an audio book on the immune system playing in the other room that accidentally was picked up on the microphone used to record the guitar.

EarthBound Soundtrack Played On A Super Rare Synthesizer โœจ๐ŸŒโœจ 


These days, the Synergy is a super rare synthesizer to come across in the wild. Originally produced in 1982, it is estimated that less than 100 are still in operation across the globe. Interestingly, it ran off cartridges, something it had in common with the Super Nintendo!

Recently, I had the opportunity to recreate some of my favorite music from EarthBound on a Synergy. This video demonstrates some of the sound textures the synthesizer is capable of, while showcasing a beloved soundtrack through a unique lens.

Music As A Lighthouse 


the feeling you getย 
when you're looking for the next songย 
to really connect withย 
whenever your head strongย 
there's always a playlistย 
always a lost gem to get you through phasesย 
and then when you find it, you're outta your headย 
your into the skylineย ย 
and centered again


Above is a set of lyrics I wrote yesterday while working on a new song. Music is a very special gift. Life can be difficult at times. My hope for you is that in every phase of life, you can pull from the infinite well of sound and rhythm, and in doing so, you can be empowered to carry on and weather the everchanging forces this world presents.ย

Metro Tower ๐Ÿ‘พ๐Ÿ‘พ๐Ÿ‘พ (Super Nintendo BANGER) 


If you know this song, I salute you! This energetic polyphony stuck with me since I rented "Rocky Rodent" from Stop 'N' Go video back in 1993.

The jump from the Nintendo Entertainment System to Super Nintendo was powerful in that era. I remember there weren't more than 6 or 7 titles to rent at the store, because SNES was in it's infancy.

I used a Synergy I synthesizer for this recreation, and I included it on my "16 Bit Ones" project.
