Focusing on Higher Quality Production

The last few months have been full of landscaping work; I haven’t had as much time for music as I’d like which is why finishing this music took so long. But it also gave me a chance to take a step back and think about what I want to make more deeply. I love french house; so I got back to a lot of that king of filtering with the steady background beat. I really had to rethink my process for this last track. Normally I like to spend an hour or two every day working on sound designs, melodies, working with new technologies, etc. I love music production because it has some pretty hardcore software engineering associated with it and these softwares allow for particle manipulations, wave shaping, modularizing, phase shifting; it all a bunch of quantum physics and learning about how sound waves and energy works for me. This track represents a lot of learning and education.

Youtube Music Video

click the link above if the video below doesn’t work; I’ve had trouble embedding videos from youtube lately.

This album represents so much hard work over the last 18 months, I have really poured myself into this music in an attempt to start playing live shows; I think it could start to happen soon! But I am also completely focused on just making music, and don’t want to be distracted with something as insane as creating a tour (honestly sounds like way too much work for one person, shout out to everyone doing that right now). I spent a lot of time creating the process to develop these sounds.

Battle for Mars represents the longest I’ve ever spent on a track; over 6 months now. All of the sounds are made from scratch, with the exception of the Gangus drums. I wrote the first EROS album in less time than that I think. The quality of the production hopefully represents that. The loudness and the mix of my tracks should be improving quite a bit and the stereo mix is just plain difficult to normalize for every system, so I’ve focused on the acoustics of a car and a clean mix (really, this just means I do a car-play test with my music). This mix is very iterative; some of the tracks have like 30 layers of EQ, the bass has been heavily processed in multiple layers of trash and a myriad of other heavy distortion plugins including the Glitch Machines armada. I really enjoyed the Max for Live improvements also, there is a vertex delay that was very fun to use.

I have a few different versions of the track, its in C and moves into D# a tiny bit, but there’s not a ton of melodic movement in this track; it is mostly about creating a unified atmosphere and feelings for the movement of the sound. So I guess the music would be a little weird if you have never heard any of my sound designs before; they are all made from scratch using operator, Ableton stock plugins, Serum, Phaseplant, Trash, Rift, and honestly too many plugins to ever remember or name.

I’ll have a music video out tomorrow or this weekend, I am not super happy with how this latest iteration came out and it takes a while to process. Thanks for listening!

Here is the final track’s cover art (really just a couple of good chat GPT prompts and editing) of EROS Part 3: Battle for Mars:

Twitch – the E.T.

In the not too distant future; one of the last human survivors on Earth, Liz, arrives on Mars to find that robotic lifeforms have previously conquered and settled the desert wastelands. Though not originating from Earth; the robot knows of Liz and her journey and proceeds to test for neurological robotic hardware that may be present in Liz’s brain. Liz performs her own testing on the sentience of the robot and find something fascinatingly familar about the robots behavior…. this is their conversation.

EROS Part 3

Track 1 – Twitch

This is the first track of the new EROS album that I am releasing over the next week. I’m still finishing the music; going as fast as I can here. It doesn’t help when I completely rewrite a track on the day of release; which I did with the track yesterday, but hey, can’t rush quality!

This track is very influenced by DAFT PUNK, Deadmau5, and MR. Oizo. I like the repetition of it and I think it has some potential for the club; it slaps I think! The drums are mixed well and the beginning could easily be looped to have a lighter and more playful beginning to the track; it’s kinda glitchy.

I made the cover art with Dall-E aka CHAT GPT; and the music video with Magic Music Visualizer, which I think I may play shows with someday! I used BeFunky to change the exposure and add text to make it a bit more cinematic. It would be very fun to have some randomized visuals going that sync with the beat.

I’ve uploaded the video to both Twitter and Youtube in an effort to decentralized the music and also to get the platforms to talk to each other more. Copyright is going to be a big issue in the future and I am doing my best to position myself to own all of my own rights to my music; my heart goes out to TSwift, Motley Crue (did I spell that right?), and any other artists that have lost rights to their creative endeavors; that’s messed up.

the E.T. Presents!! – A Digital Native in an Analog World

This is a really fun track that I made about throwing my cell phone into the woods about three weeks ago. I’ve had a really good time detaching from my cell-phone since then and I have the new iPhone now, but I will always miss the times when I did not have the ability to access a phone. I’m not super stoked about how the world is changing to digital and I think it’s best if we, as a society, take our time to adopt new technologies, such as AI. The Analog world is so cool; I highly recommend giving yourself sometimes without technology, especially a phone, sometime in the next few months. Take a week off and explore the real world…..
