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?



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".

Ok - @abstraction twisted my arm to take another crack at NaSoAlMo ... which takes it roots fromNaNoWriMo for the writerly folk, but for musicians. I tried last year and never recorded anything. I have a massive problem with actually hitting record - there are…

Mike Carrs is one heck of a nice guy and a stunning musician. His ambient work is among the best out there. This particular album resonates with me as I seem to reach for it more often. Also highly…

preview of a track for a special broadcast

Hi there. I wanted you guys to be among the first to hear a preview of a long form dark ambient track that I'm writing especially for the 10/24 edition of the blind flight. The whole piece is 2.5 hours and I'm sure, at some point, i'll release it as a downloadable album, not sure when that will happen. I wanted to have some particularly dark shows leading up to the Halloween broadcast and thought it would be cool to write something specifically to broadcast that wasn't yet available. Here's…

'Supernature' came out of the sessions for my upcoming album 'Iris'. I felt it was somewhat different in mood to the rest of the tracks I was working on, so I'm releasing it as a 'single'. 'Supernature' changes subtlely in tonality throughout it's duration, many sources were used to create the track and the tonal shifts employed add to the track's overall liminal sound signature. The track's dynamic shifts are less subtle !…
