Update Tuesday 11 October 2005

I have posted a new song titled "Rain" (instrumental) on the site in MP3 format (listen to it here. The idea "came" to me as I was driving through light rain, no less, from a few towns over. A couple things I had in mind for the song: the piano's chord progression and embedded melody that you hear on the high note of each chord; and, imagining a song suitable for a voice such as Björk's.

PS - a happy belated Canadian Thanksgiving to the northerly neighbors!

Update Sunday 4 September 2005

Well, quite a few things have happened since the last update of the website proper and the blog an eon (okay, over a year) ago: family movements from one locale to another, and updating of the website proper with more songs (huzzah!) in MP3 format. Finally, I've jammed with the local Boston band Ibex Life, playing keyboards. Not sure where it will take me, but that's what life's about, right? I will continue to create and produce my own music every now and then, but keep your eyes and ears open for the band, if you live in the area.

I'm also very close to developing that Paypal link, now...

On another more serious note, I cannot find better words to express the sadness at the state of things today, especially with respect to the disaster that has occurred in Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi. I visited New Orleans two years ago (for a wedding, no less), and had a hectic but rather fun time sight-seeing whenever possible. Now, the regional landscape is formidably and significantly changed, and lives have been separated; I can only hope that those who survived are able to find hospitalization, and contact their family and loved ones to let them know they're alive and okay. Red Cross.

Take care and be well.

Update 29 Jul 04

I've just updated a couple things on the site:

1. a new song of sorts entitled "Reason" - if you like slow, atmospheric music, give it a listen.

2. I've updated the FAQ and the pictures page to reflect the fact that I pulled the MIDI PC away from the rig since having gotten MIDI to work in Pro Tools on the Mac. (I am now Windows-less!)

If anyone in Massachusetts, or even in surrounding states, could possibly recommend to me a few joints to play, I would greatly appreciate it!
