So it’s come to this.
It was the EDM revolution. America remembered it could dance. How fitting that Dubstep had no identifiable dance. Good time to shake off the rust I suppose.
Working in the Pro Audio department of the Stupidly American music store, I was surrounded by a DJ and a grad of Pyramind. Between these two “colleagues” and being lambasted while jamming Bossa Nova with some old guys I heeded the Electronic call. I knew I wanted to release an album but that was too much work. Work sucks.
I took a Coursera course on The Beatles and discovered their strategic use of the EP format. When I realized I could get music out faster, but still not release random singles, I tacked on and finally released the first half of the Uncomfortable EP this year in spring. The second half should go out in December or January ’17. Being a one man band isn’t fun or easy though. Plus there’s all those synths to learn..
In the meantime I’ve been synthing it up with the 8 Bar Embryo series, going pro with my One True Path Acoustics brand and all the while trying not to go bankrupt.
26 years goes fast. (So does 5 parts of autobiography). I’m currently struggling to not compare myself to younger, more successful artists. The truth is, and it’s not an excuse, but I’m on a religious path. Long days of grinding it out are not appealing to me.
Music, for me, is a great way of expression, a brain workout, very rewarding and even a bit fun. I’ll be offering some things for sale soon and anything I can earn would be great. For now, the best thing is being able to do what I enjoy, sharing it with others and, hopefully, one day being able to make something that the world can appreciate as much as I do.
