ZOMBIES 1985! Here comes a theme…maybe.

So, I was clinking around with this (clinking, clonking…that’s how I play piano…) at Benge’s when we were filming last Tuesday…he had a white baby grand piano in the middle of the room, so I showed him my thoughts. And who could resist the narcissism of filming yourself playing in zombie makeup? Not me… Sooo,…Continue Reading

ZOMBIES 1985! And now a word about our new ZOMBIE short film via Kickstarter….

Good evening! It’s been hot and weirdly humid here in Wales, a bit disappointing as I thought we’d be escaping the heat of LA this year….but noooo….So, that heat was quite evident today up in the loft of “The Screeching Barn” when creating this video today… We decided to create a wee little video telling…Continue Reading

ARP 2600 love with Bob Moog Foundation’s Marc Doty!

I feel a bit nostalgic for the times I used to post every day on this blog – and Mr. Doty’s videos do make me want to post more ‘religiously’. I keep up with his awesome synth tutorials (well, they’re really too good to be categorized as “tutorials”, but my vocabulary is limp today) and…Continue Reading

Ruby’s Exquisite New Album Release “Waiting for Light” is coming!

From Silverfish to Pigface to the fabulous

Obeheim & Arturia treats and the “Belly of the Beast”.

Greetings from Wales! In our 8th week of our visit, thus far has been quite an interesting ride! The sun seems to be less shy these days, and I have been deeply embedded in a remix for one of my favorite artists. I am fortunate enough to have an OB-8 & OSCar on loan from…Continue Reading

Modular Master Classes by Benge & Daniel Miller…lush stuff.

We’ve been in the UK working for the past few weeks, and aside from record amounts of rain and (sample worthy) howling winds, I am having a moment of down time. A friend just sent me these wonderful master classes by Mute boss & electronic music icon Daniel Miller. AND another clip by Benge, who…Continue Reading

NAMM 2014 – First look the Moog Sub 37!

At the last minute, Maf & I were called to the UK for a bit o’ business…amidst a portable studio, a big chunk of Welsh countryside and beautifully moody weather: …hence our absence from NAMM 2014. So, I’ll do my best to stay updated with it from afar, posting the the most swoonful new creations…Continue Reading

Greetings for 2014! I’m just on the verge of dismantling my studio for a long trip to the UK, and on the tail end of finishing my first project for 2014 (I will reveal more but it’s currently secret)…And of course to play a few shows of The Silence! My favorite synth is still my…Continue Reading

New Song: “Death She Said” feat. Clint Mansell – A bit about it.

Good afternoon & happy celebrative time of year to you all! I am spending mine in LA, a bit bummed by the hot weather we’re STILL having, but I suppose it could be worse. A good day to avoid sunlight and camp out in the studio, yes. Anyway, been working on finishing The Silence soundtrack…Continue Reading

Synthing Season…

I’ve had my head down for the past few weeks, working on The Silence OST, and just noticed today how unbelievable fast this year has spun by…a big wild carousel, it’s been. Almost time for the NAMM show already, can you believe it? Before a make a peep today (getting a bit of a late…Continue Reading
