The fact that she was an actual singer/songwriter was overshadowed by all the other nonsense, and some of the production sounds dated now, but she was a pretty bitchin’ lyricist and I always thought she had something. RIP. https://youtu.be/I6Et5oxanuU
Go Live or Bust!
This’ll probably be my last backing track experiment before I seriously get down to trying to figure out a live rig. Delving deeper into this artist and her synth pop-opera theatrics has been great fun. https://youtu.be/dnMGNhHaw_c
Fun with Backing Tracks!
With the new year, and at the urging of a couple trusted advisors, I have been starting to consider how to actually perform songs live with more layered arrangements. So far I’ve made a couple videos playing over backing tracks; here’s one of them! Liked this song since I was a kid but was late... Continue Reading →
Thanks to anyone who took some time out of their year to have a gander at… whatever all THIS mess is! I appreciate you, even if you noped out immediately afterward! All the best for ‘23! https://youtu.be/2xRVLRpaGWk

Laccaria amethystina, the amethyst deceiver. In addition to it being a purple mushroom, which is already mysterious and cool, the name arrested me at first sight.... Continue Reading →
I've made substantial strides on the next full-length, which is a concept album, if only loosely. It is typical of me, though, after leaping forward, to reflect a bit. At the moment my retrospection is fixed on the piece of music I'm most proud of from my last album. It's actually part five of five... Continue Reading →
Pretty Ugly // Ugly Pretty
My old classmate Brooke*, a visual art major, painted and pasteled the wings of fantastical butterflies. Exalted Tree of Life circulatory systems. Her own conventionally beautiful visage in buoyant soap-shimmering orbs. Her rainbow-age was as extra as Lisa Frank's, but more graceful. All of this was both her great endowment and her great curse."I'm trying... Continue Reading →
