What is Hexspa? Part 5

Parts one, two, three and four.

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.

Ok?  Ok.
