not enough recovery


January 20, 2017
oh dear

where has the time gone? HNY and stuff.

I was honored to be asked to open for the Silver Sound Showdown festival at the Brooklyn Bowl this year. It was an amazing experience. I used the following tools:

  • Thinkpad X60 laptop with a 1.83GHz Core 2 Duo CPU and 2GB RAM.
    I updated this to Windows 10, but for the month before the show while practicing I wouldn't connect it to the internet. I was afraid I'd get to the venue and it'd start installing updates... Or at bets when it tried to download some it'd interrupt the audio.
  • Zoom R24 audio interface/control surface
    Zoom gave me this one a while back, kindly, and it's really great. My only wish would be that I could use the drum trigger buttons to send MIDI to REAPER... but it works well anyway.
  • Line6 FBV Express Mk II pedal (you can use this via USB without a Line6 amp)
  • 2x dynamic mics
  • Home made wood furniture to hold the laptop and audio interface
  • Electric guitar (direct-in to the Zoom's Hi-Z port)
  • Flute (amazon $100 special)
  • House drum kit
    I brought my cymbals, but my ride wouldn't fit in my case so I brought the crash to use as a ride, wasn't ideal)
  • REAPER, Super8 (JSFX), plug-ins
    ReaDelay, ReaEQ, various other JSFX, and the classic SimulAnalog JCM900 VST. I also wrote a spectral hold that samples the master output, and another instance which synthesizes from a track with anticipative FX threads, for better performance.
    In hindsight I should've used the headphones I had brought for monitoring, rather than the stage monitors, but oh well.
The performance was completely improvised, and while it has quite a few rough spots there are at least a few nice bits in there.

Here's a video (shot with a Contour Roam 2 pointed at my blurred-out crotch, and mixed with the audio recorded by REAPER itself):


Muchas gracias to Silver Sound for having me and to everybody who came out to see the show! Woohoo! Let's not talk about what happened today.

Live at Sidewalk NYC on September 15th

I should have posted this a month ago, but forgot:



It's Cory's song, with André and Anette, with a not-fully-planned appearance by Jason on the sax. The full recording is available in the music page thing.

In other news, if you've listened to the other music on this page, you may have noticed that this is my new best friend:


Allison's clarinet from grade school, an amazing gift. Mmmm.
