2018's thought was to learn Logic and just play II/IV Jazz changes all winter and get the standards I've studied years ago back into my hands as well as having fun with Electronic cool music. But, a new client wanted to learn ProTools and is a conservatory trained classical pianist not a guitarist. After our initial conversation he became a new kind of student for me. Along with him learning the process of Pro Tools, we began working on his music and then the doors flew open!
A great collaboration has happened and other similar kinds of people are joining me in my studio. It's a very exciting time.
The channels have changed in my daily listening.You have to always listen to learn and discover.
I have created over 40 tracks of music in solo mode and in collaboration mode, mostly in 2019.
Some rough mixes/sketches are available on my Listen page as well as others that are still unfinished and waiting their turn to completion and sent off into the world.
Always looking for a common ground and also un-common grounds that work from their differences.
Along side touring and band commitments, I always did projects "outside" of that sand box.
My adventures lead me into creating scores for numerous theater productions, choreographers, indie films, industrials, national TV commercials.
There is never enough time in the day, but there is always tomorrow.
What does it take to make it "more better"...?
