New EP Released…

NEW EP RELEASED
My friend, Joanne Gabriel (joannegabriel.bandcamp.com), has inspired me to experiment with creating sounds with my guitar. As such, I sat down recently & recorded a bunch of songs using regular household spoons as the main method of strumming the strings on my guitar. I played around with a bunch of effects in Jeskola Buzz & was able to create some really otherworldly & spacey tones. After recording these songs, I had this sudden brainstorm to release them as an EP of demos.

These are the demos that resulted from this process.

Some Final Touches…

I’m putting the final touches on the EP of Spoon Guitar experiments.  I’ve entitled it Cuillères Intergalactiques & it has been a lot of fun playing around with this new methodology.  In fact, I have expanded the experimentation to more dinnerware.  I used a bowl to create an ethereal loop that begins the fourth song on the EP: To Where The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon.  I am quite pleased with the results so far.

I have one final song to finish for the EP, one which I hope to record tonight.  This means I should be able to release the full EP for the enjoyment of all before the end of the week.  So keep checking back here for the latest updates & maybe a sneak peak at my upcoming Moonscapes album.

Spoons & Production Notes…

My friend, Joanne Gabriel, has inspired me to experiment with creating sounds with my guitar.  As such, I sat down last weekend & recorded a bunch of songs using regular household spoons as the main method of strumming the strings on my guitar.  I played around with a bunch of effects in Jeskola Buzz & was able to create some really otherworldly & spacey tones.  After recording these songs, I had this sudden brainstorm to release them as an EP.

So now I’m working on post production for two projects.  My Moonscapes project which is the result of my FAWM 2015 creativity & now this new EP that I’ve entitled Cuillères Intergalactiques.  I’m hoping to finish up the post-production on the EP this weekend, which will leave me a lot of time to concentrate on the post-production of Moonscapes.  But until I release them, you can listen to the demos on my FAWM page.  Leave me a comment, either on my FAWM page if you are a fellow FAWMer, or in the form below.  Let me know your thoughts on the Moonscapes demos or your thoughts on experimenting with sounds.  Share your outlandish sound creation experiments, or any other crazy thought that might inspire someone else.

Quietaphobics – Double Teamer – Live On 807 Back beat

From the local Cable TV archive – a show I co-created & produced back in the day.  My favourite Quietaphobics song in all their alt-folk glory.  A walk down memory lane…  Enjoy!
