The Freedom of Getting Older

When I was young I had to spend a lot of time investing in my career, then young family. I also had my own one man consulting business. In my 20’s, when just out of college, I’d say for 10 years being cool or hip was important. That was a very silly waste of time. That meant I had no time to actually do…

Organized Chaos

I’m learning that there is a fine line between noisy gibberish and Organized Chaos. I’ve been trying to extend past the “normal” 3 minute pop tune song structure or soundscape – but I tell ya – its a real challenge. Every now and then I seem to stumble on something that works. This tune is “OK” – but it was an eye opener –…

If The Shoe Fits

I wanted to try writing a song in G Minor. I’m finding that writing with the piano / keyboards is the fastest way to best understand music theory – because the keys are laid out so linearly / logically. I’m also starting to enjoy playing piano more than any other instrument – it’s fun to add other instruments as accompaniment – like the Lap…

Heart Grenade

It feels great to have an administration with compassion and empathy – one who cares about the people of the US – not one man’s crippled ego and morally bankrupt soul.

erste Kunst für Kabarett 391

I hope to soon try my hand at stop animation – with the puppets – and then scoring music to their jittery and quirky dances. Once I get good at it – I’ve made these panels that fit into the frame at the top of the puppet theatre – and I will have the puppets rate and review the artwork. Stay tuned!

Finger Gottes

Finger GottesWeitreichende RankenHat dich auf der Erd deponiertDann bringt dich weg Fingers of GodFar reaching tendrilsDeposited you on EarthThen takes you away The only time I feel that there could be a God – its always due to nature – if it were only for Man – I wouldn’t believe in God at all.

NACKT EINE TREPPE HINUNTER

Marcel Duchamp is an artist I am familiar with because in the 80’s I was a huge Man Ray fanatic. I started out loving his photography, but then was drawn into his drawings and paintings – and of course Assemblage. The more I learned about Dada Art – the more I loved it. So many other Modern art movements and offshoots made more sense…

DADA IST KUNST

Since my songs are just me amusing myself – I figure I would start writing lyrics in German. I’ve been teaching myself German for the past 3 days . . . . its fun – and I’m using my “baby” step words – fitting since this is Dada after all!

TELEPHONENRUF VON HANS ARP

Here is a fun little Dada joke . . . Korg and Beringer just released “reimagined” ARP 2600 clones, and this piece was recorded using Arturia’s V Collection 8 version of an ARP 2600. Arturia really rocks!
