  • Sink, Swim, or Float

    4 Months ago, I wrote about going into my 3rd year of SvenMusic, and looking forward to a new year. So far I have gotten very little accomplished.
     
     Usually when I battle with depression or stress, I can find peace in the art or music that I do, now it is a source of stress and [...]

    Deep Breath…

    The beginning is always the most difficult. Another year. SvenMusic is entering its 3rd yr. Right now I am moving to Sadorus, a new studio, a new part to shape my world view. Hopefully I will be able to follow through with my idea of a studio with an isolation room. I need to get [...]

    Krannert Taste of the Arts

    Well I had a short little showing of two pieces: Primary 7 and Verb: Wave at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. The Taste of the Arts was an open house for Krannert, featuring local visual artists and the UIUC performance community. I think it was a success and another opportunity for my work to [...]

    Jam 9, The Video

    I put together a little video shot by my digital camera and worked it into Jam 9. It was fun to put together images and music. It was a great opportunity to try out the video features of Cakewalk SONAR. So I hope you all enjoy my little artsy video and music.

    To end

    I watch on a blue screen as a yellow stripe inches its way across my screen. Its my hard drive I’m watching as it disappears into exploding 1’s and 0’s. It may be sad that in order to get a fresh start you have to erase or wipe out everything that stands in the way [...]

    Savoy Recreation Center

    Well I set up my work at the Savoy Rec Center 9/2/05. And I have to say I like the opportunity to have my work displayed as it should be. Within a working environment where it exists as an accent to peoples everyday lives. I never felt that my work should be some ground shaking [...]

    Jam 7

    Well I put together another jam. I really made sure to compress everything, as always it is an experiment. I put new strings on the guitars and they just sound so much better. I am not sure how long they will last, I seem to corrode everything that I touch. Anyway here it is:

    Its too bad for you..

    To my wonderful commenter, who apparently hangs out in many Jr. High Bathrooms: Your courageous effort to [anonymously] thwart my ego or somehow placate your own have fallen away as I realize that you are probably wasting your time looking for “Sex” pictures and insulting people. If you actually had something intelligent to say I [...]

    The 6 Mix

    Well I spent last weekend remixing Jam6. It was fun to figure out new ways to look at existing parts and rework them. Remarkably a violin moved down an octave and slowed down to half speed ends up sounding an awful like a cello… well you will have to take a listen and see if [...]
