ABOUT

Not intended for enthusiasts of any genre, nor purists, music lovers, or really anyone who likes anything too much to deface it: classical (think: Beethoven, Mozart), techno/industrial/heavy metal/trip-hop with little bits of horror movies & Nintendo games sampled into it just to make it weirder: mixing errors are the glitches that make it my own, which is great because I suck at studio engineering! Despite the name & the weirdness I am neither retarded or stoned, I hate lazy, easy music, & I don't like stupid people. I believe this project is the most fun to work on, but it is very difficult & perfectionism is both necessary & absolutely untennable. It's hard to explain people. It will probably never amount to much, but it's what I love.

Members Of Band

Me. I've worked with a few musicians but the metal guitarist hates the classical pianist, the pianist hates the repetitive riffs, the drummer hated the sequencer & the keyboard player/vocalist...well, she just kinda didn't know how to play very well or sing.... Anyway, lot of hard feelings, some "still friends," but everyone survived & all was well at the end of the day.

EQUIPMENT

Ibanez SDGR 400, Gibson "the Paul," Epiphone accoustic, lil' M Audio 88-key USB controller (keyboard), Casio concert piano, 2x wide-diaphram mics with shock-mounts & windscreens on booms + 2x condenser mics, J Station & some other kind of effects processors (and many VSTs), a bunch of computers, Presonous Audiobox audio input (working on my ProFx12 mixer), and DAW/sequencing programs like Reason, Ableton Live and Cubase 6...KRK 5 studio monitors, 2x375w powered PA speakers, etc. Just pretty much a mess of a cheap studio...it gets pretty messy...
