#jamuary2021 – Almost There

Day 16… it may be cold outside but it is getting warm in here… The picture is a chocolate cake we had for Valentine’s Day… really good… I’m pretty sure my wife picked it up at Whole Foods… if I remember correctly. For the track it’s another mix of chops and synths… and auto sampling…Continue reading “#jamuary2021 – Almost There”

#jamuary2021 – Awkward Forgiveness

Fifteen tracks for January… woo! The picture… I believe is from Disney, from the animal park resort. I am pretty sure I mentioned how much my daughter loved that trip. We had a blast, and it was great to see all of the different animals. This track is a mix of chops, and synths. IContinue reading “#jamuary2021 – Awkward Forgiveness”

#jamuary2021 – Come on Over

Trying to pull things I’ve been learning over the last month and a half together into a more coherent type of track… The picture is from one of my trips to the Czech Republic… forget when… there’s definitely a lot of stunning architecture out there, and absolutely worth checking out. About a third of theContinue reading “#jamuary2021 – Come on Over”

#jamuary2021 – Old Haunts

Day ten… was on a roll… and then I fell off 😀 The image is from a trip years ago that we took our daughter to the Boston Commons and is of the paddle boat that you can take a little tour around the duck pond. Our daughter was never super excited to get onContinue reading “#jamuary2021 – Old Haunts”

#jamuary2021 – Long Voyage

Alright back again messing with TraTraTra Transpose! Boy, the picture is from about four years ago… Amy is looking impressively squinty… might have been from the flash, I don’t really recall. Looked like a goofy enough picture to work with for today’s track though. She’s watching you! Today I took my own personal advice fromContinue reading “#jamuary2021 – Long Voyage”

#jamuary2021 – My Time Here is Done

The track was named as such… because I threw my hands up in desperation. *not* a good track, but I did learn something… but first So the picture comes courtesy of the dang thing that the MPC Live did to twist up my song. Yeah, above is the drum track… but let me explain howContinue reading “#jamuary2021 – My Time Here is Done”

#jamuary2021 – Hamburgled

That dang squirrel… taking my food! Putting this track together was fun… but I did struggle a bit (again) with audio tracks, external midi, and exporting the file. I know I grumbled about this before, but Akai really needs to get an ability to mix in from the inputs for a track if/when you needContinue reading “#jamuary2021 – Hamburgled”

#jamuary2021 – Data Repeater

Just spent most of the day doing small things… so figured I’d wrap this turkey up :D’ The picture is from some resin structures we made as a family this year. My dad was all about how copper killed COVID or something silly, so he sent us some. I didn’t buy into it, and IContinue reading “#jamuary2021 – Data Repeater”

#jamuary2021 – Silent Grace

Day five… and I am still alive! The picture comes from a Barnum and Bailey Circus show that we brought our daughter to. She loved it. Definitely was weird though… we were near the front of the stadium and these massive and majestic creatures still looked so small. We offered our daughter to go seeContinue reading “#jamuary2021 – Silent Grace”

#jamuary2021 – Method of Attack

Day four is a bit more rocking today. Went in a kind of house/trance direction… The picture comes from a trip to Disney World that my wife and I took our daughter to for her third birthday. She doesn’t remember the trip at all today, but at the time she had a blast. When sheContinue reading “#jamuary2021 – Method of Attack”
