An Arturia Microbrute and the included synth software (Analog Lab). Highly recommend it, it was around $200 when I got it (and it was bought for me as payment for the score, which is even better). It's the first decent synth I've ever had, and it's proven incredibly versatile so far.
Big fan of all the above - a semi-broken $20 Portastudio was what I first started recording on.
Earthbound is, of course, amazing, but I think the game I've put in the most time on is Kirby's Dream Course. Once you get the hang of the mechanics, it's insanely fun. My fiance and I spent many nights in drinking beers and playing a few rounds of kirby golf.
Thanks! It's been fun working mostly with synths and electronic sounds, lots of room to experiment and make some soundscapes.
I've done one or two songs here and there for movies before, but this is my first time making a whole score. It's only about 20 minutes long, but there's still around 10 minutes of music (14 tracks), so I've been keeping busy, to say the least.
Gainfully employed and moving to Vermont in a week. Teaching music at a K-8 school in the woods, pretty much the dream job.
On the music front: I'm within spitting distance of finishing the score for my friend's movie. Here are some tracks that somewhat make sense on their own.
The summer Shakespeare program that my family runs ended yesterday, and I am fucking beat. Things were a mess this year from a tech standpoint, but the students were great. I recorded one song with a student, which I should be done mixing soon. Sad to be back in a quiet house again, but I am not missing the dirty dishes on every available surface.
I'm moving, again. This time to Brattleboro VT, only about two hours away from my family, into a three-bedroom apartment that costs less than $1000 a month. Teaching preschool, making music, same old same old. Great little art scene that I'm looking forward to becoming a part of.
I'm sort of running on empty these days. This summer took a lot out of me, and sadly I don't have time to rest before moving.
Still, found the time to make a banjo-ukulele.
Tamborine, scrap wood, recycled plastic hit with a heat gun to shrink it.
Expect to see a bit more of me after the move.
[PS: kleinbl00, anyone else with an opinion: I have been sitting on a bit of Tesla stock since 2015, and have been dying to get rid of it for almost as long because Elon Musk is a terrifying crazy person. What do you think are the odds of him actually sticking to all this going private talk?]
Good time for a change. I'm back east, the students are here, it's too fucking hot out. The someday Misses and I explored VT this weekend - think we may settle in Burlington someday soon.
I'm making music again, making shirts again - both pictured above. I made a 4th of july shirt, will upload later. [EDIT: Behold the monstrosity]
Things are good, hectic. I'm scoring a movie this summer, and working on some music besides.
EDIT: for those interested, the music tools featured in the above are a beat up, taped down Casio sampling a beer bottle; an acoustic guitar with an eBow drone; a gameboy color through a delay.
- Almost instantly, the two groups began exchanging blows, throwing objects at one another and shouting— each calling the other "Nazis."
One more day until I hop on a long train across the country. Taking a one day stop in Chicago to visit family, the whole trip will be about 4 days. Lots of books picked out, lots of music downloaded, lots of yarn for sweaters.
Also, I've been cross stitching a bunch the past few days, mostly to keep from going insane.
Pictured here are Mr Saturn, a freeform geometric thing I'm working on, my Oregon patch, and a lil robin.
