New album out soon entitled Balance

I finally have something to share after 4 years of hard work on my followup to the first album I ever started work on, A Chance of Weather. This is the first IDM and Ambient release by DeepWarmth. Taking about 4 years to complete, and is inspired by Rei Harakami who sadly passed away during the making of this album. This becomes an album in memory of such a great Japanese Electronic Music artist as much as an album that reflects the various stages of life during the making of the album.…

Digital sales for the major music industry is plummeting.

Lost Songs from the Endless River

This album consists of songs that did not make the final cut of my full-length album entitled "Endless River". I wanted to let these songs out to the world and decided to combine them into a continuous piece that flows forth from the same place as "Endless River". The end product is a 32 minute journey available as "name your own price". It can be downloaded for free, or pay what you like. Thank you for listening and thanks for your support.…

Vintage Synth Tips: Replacing the Internal Battery

The more I work with older synths, the more I see a simple reality: Expect there will be at least some little maintenance problems to deal with, if not big ones! Having a vintage synth is a labor of love, because you appreciate it's classic sound and design, but being used and old means it will have some problems.  A few weeks ago, I blogged about my recent attempt to change an internal battery which failed, but I learned a…

Weekend Getaway 002

Speaking of Genre crossover, this next guy I am about to introduce is partly a country-alt, country-folk, and also a ambient, abstract musician. So what does that spell?

Ambient-country?

Yeeks!

All the genre hype aside, this next piece is one of the most "Eno-ish" works I've seen in a while.

So, come back this weekend for some more escapism and welcome

Bryce 7 Pro art

I had a very olde copy of Bryce software like 16 years ago and did a few pic and album covers. I just bought Bryce 7 Pro yesterday for a steal and here is my very first rendering. I will use it for either a future album cover or for a static YouTube image with SourceCodeX music. I hope to learn 3D animation soon. Well, here is the picture I call "Bizarre UFO".
