I’ve been meaning to make a s3quence mix that had stuff from #RPM2011, but I was waiting until I had a chance to listen to more of the stuff that came out of it. Then the earthquake/tsunami in Japan happened. Looking at these pictures is mind-blowing, as is the constant threat of nuclear radiation for… Continue reading teh s3quence – 011 – #BassLove4Japan

[RPM2011] Seeing how the other half lives
What I learned about making music for the RPM Challenge this week.
[RPM2011] Valentine’s Day update
As of today I’m slightly more than halfway through my RPM album and the second half seems like it should be pretty much a breeze since all the leitmotifs should be done.
The latest update is that I’m 3/10ths of the way through the soundtrack. I’ll be there for minutes long before I get all the tracks down (especially after this weekend), but what I’m happier about is that I got 3 new leitmotifs in that I’ll be using later in the game (for Blomkvist, Harriet &… Continue reading [RPM2011] 30%
[RPM2011] first song, Lisbeth
This song is mostly done. I think if I get a chance before the end of the month I’m going to adjust the levels on the drum kit…
[RPM2011] It’s February 1. I’m going to make an album cover
Lucky thing I already figured out what my album cover for RPM2011 would be. This is a quick screencast of my cover-making process. The music is my remix of @artfulmark’s Coffee Break.
A History of Bedroom Music Production — Part Three
So this is the third and final part chronicling the evolution of my music. What started out as a fascination with synthesizers largely due to the shallow(er) learning curve turned into an avid interest in electronic and computer-generated music. Ironically, digging into the history of electronic music sent me in the opposite direction, towards more… Continue reading A History of Bedroom Music Production — Part Three
What I don’t mention in this video blog (but I did on my blog on The RPM Challenge) is that I’ve also decided on a title for the album, Wasp. You can head over there if you want the full description, I’m too lazy to repost something I’ve already written here. Also, an interesting thing… Continue reading [RPM2011] Tracklist
A History of Bedroom Music Production — Part 2
RPM2011 is 9 days away and it seems appropriate to finish this retrospective series before RPM starts. Part 1 of this series covered the early beginnings of my interest in music up through high school and eventually turning to the computer as a means for producing and recording music. Part 2 will cover how that… Continue reading A History of Bedroom Music Production — Part 2
