Year End 2017 I had a pretty productive year. Life definitely threw me some challenges. All things considered, I’m looking forward to 2018 being even better. Let’s look back from the year end 2017. In Review This past year I made some good progress in releasing music. Not only did I publish several Eight Bar Embryo tracks (including one made just for this NYE celebration) but I also put
Ok, 98 fml …99… I currently have 98 subs on the Hexspa YouTube channel. Kind of exciting. My first video was uploaded around late 2009. I started with a namesake channel but I deleted all the stuff off of it so now it’s just Hexspa. I remember when I made my first penny through adsense. It was a cool moment. I’m not raking in millions just yet but maybe
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.

Parts one, two, and three. So there I was. 2008. A MySpace girlfriend and a new name. Service weapon of choice: guitar and voice. MOS: Songwriter. In 2009 I went to school for music. For three weeks. It was a tad shameful of an experience and I’ll leave it at that. Basically I didn’t want to be “just” a guitar player. I wanted moar. Moar I got. Back in
Part one and part two. It started with MySpace. It always used to start with MySpace. In the Army I met a girl. Late 2007 we moved into a roommate situation. I was preparing for a music school in Hollywood (deliberately not naming it). I’d pushed back my entrance for whatever reason (slacker). So, early 2008 I was considering what I’d publish my music as. The motto for the battalion
Continued from Part 1. Failure is the shit out of which new fruit grows. I should start an orchard. The band was falling apart. People were leaving, new lineups weren’t as solid and my musicianship needed work. A chance encounter during an altered state of mind was the first clue as to what my future would hold. It was the first time I’d ever seen one in real life.
Hexspa is death. Actually, Hexspa is my life. In a sense Hexspa is death since I’ll probably be doing it until then. Hexspa is my musical activity. Music=life, life=death; Hexspa=death. The seeds of Hexspa can be traced to my first years as a violin student beginning in second grade. A local orchestra came to Lincoln Elementary School in Brookfield, Il around 1989. The idea was that they had teamed
