I have a rehersal space at Kildare Studios. It's heated, and warm. This is casual until it is not casual which in speaking, writing, planning out becomes clear. Who is afraid to work on stuff? Be rejected? Things might work, things might not. Best case scenario you are a person who is reliable, and can enjoy the process. ryanbwilliamson yah oo dot com
Music is a must. I play guitar, and figure another one is great. Or if you have some loops, a drum machine, drums, mix it up. I'm all for experimentation, and group writing. Switching roles if necessary whether for fun or for perspective. I want to start or join a project in Chicago. I have a few outdated internet personas on .

A whole lot of diverse material. What I enjoy changes day to day. David Bowie, or I could listen to Sea and Cake all day, or Skeletonwitch. Ariel Pink, or Mastadon, or Jeff Buckley, or Tom Waits. It's generally not emo, and it's generally not Country Western. Generally.
Practice Space at Kildare Studios Gibson Les Paul, Fender Bassman, some stomp boxes on a pedal board, a couple cheap Fender Stras, Danno Hodad, Ibanez acoustic electric, PODxt, Presonus FP10,Beringer 2x12 amp, lots of mics, Macbook computer, drum set (I have improved for a few beats), Abelton Live, Fender Squire P-Bass email@example.com just added the POD X3, and I have a midi controller, and a pedal board to control various things. Haven't gotten much out of the midi controller yet.
Terry And Ryan 5 4 2011
Terry And Ryan 5 4 2011My buddy Terry and I were just trying to get to know Abelton software. This is a sort of test we came up with, and it turned out pretty decent. Terry did two guitar tracks, I put a guitar lead, and two bass lines, a vocal line, and we both agreed on a simple, but odd drum midi track, and a simple sound synth midi track as well.
Lake Trip 2 - 1
Lake Trip 2 - 1I recorded a real nice experiment. At the end I looped tracks I was playing live, and a track I had looped. It was a long loop and it all was being recorded at once. In the end I played with the feedback of two digital delays. I then tweaked, and played with that mess. Then my computer crashed before I could save anything. Frustrated. I decided to try and redo what I did. This is that result. Not the levels I would have liked of the live, VS the looped, but when I went to rerecord what had been lost. I wasn't dealing with the same settings as the previous run. I still like it, and it reminds me to try, and learn more about what I'm trying to do. Possibly I will start to remember those sorts of things. Also I hope I grabbed the right recording. Oh computers, why aren't you as easy as the push of a button, and a few other buttons, and then well I digress. Thanks for listening! Have, and be good in all things for as long as you can safely.
Ryan's HopeMessing around with a single take over a layer of cool tracks David Bon had set up in his former garage studio. Amazed at the results of a microphone cordless test, and a guitar track through my line 6 pod xt. I still find it funny to hear myself produced in this way.
MessnLine 6 Rifftracker is a fun way to mess around with tunes. Especially when you don't have a stable of musicians knocking down your down on a regular basis. Lately I've been trying to get a lot more familiar with ABLETON. The idea of live, and studio can be two different entities. Just working to wrap my head around each of these issues and place a decent foot forward each day. I'm unheard, unknown, but I have a nice time.
