Funneling my creative whims into various other neglected projects, but always playing with color, shape, and various visuals. At work mostly writing various portions of a graphic novel, but will post the various artistic goings on via Instagram (and also here).

The Revival, April 2012 (3rd take), Open G Tuning.
More experimentation with alternate tunings, albeit this one is a slide tuning…and I am not playing slide. There’s a solid composition in this collection of notes, and I am happy just to be creating little half-melody songs again. No pyrotechnics, no team of dancers, no $100k worth of equipment and technicians, no meat dress or exposed nipples…and yet the actual music is so much better than anything with any of the aforementioned. Just a passion for music, a guitar, a living room, and a simple recorder is all you need.
Something Like a Remedy, Recorded 4/17/2012 (first and only take).
“Something like a Remedy,
my sound against the silence,
the steel against my blood,
and my time cast into the walls.”
My first time experimenting around with Open D tuning. Sat down, played for 5 minutes, and this is what came out. Being a first and only take, it needs more coherence, etc., but I am happy to leave it broken and unfinished for somewhere in the sound there is great meaning for me…and peace.
