Return to zero

Well today I received my "new" Tascam 424Mkiii. I'm having fun playing around with a four track again. It brings me back to when I was a teenager and recording Cocteau Twins-ish songs in my bedroom (or trying to would be more accurate). Hopefully in the next few weeks I will have some interesting songs to post. Speaking of, If you get a chance please say hi or leave a comment. I would love to hear from you and get a feel for whose reading.

The Sound of Rocks

The way I used to record my music was running instruments into a Mackie 12 channel mixer and then running that into Logic. I decided to go back in time a little bit and start using a Tascam 424MkIII cassette recorder. After taking a hiatus from recording for a little while I have re-thought the direction I was going in. My older music rarely had guitars present, which to me is a shame since that was actually the instrument I started with. So now comes the Tascam and Zoom H4n field recorder to go along with the synthesizers.

Speaking of old songs, here is one I came across from 2006. This is from a collection of ambient songs I was working on.

New Project, New alias

This site will be home to the band The Secret Life of Daytime which is a new musical project I'm starting. More information very shortly...

In the meantime here is a demo of a song I was working on a little bit ago. It gives an idea of the direction this project will take. Hope you enjoy it.
