Subject description: Electronic jams from me and my collaborators.
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Hey y'all!

I've been doing electro jams with my sax and looping for several years. And I've been doing collaborations with a variety of other artists.

I'd like to start with a project I call "Dr. Wax & Sax." This is Damien Hayes aka DJ Law, the Turntable Jedi.

We did some recording last time I was up in Eugene, OR. Pretty funky stuff mostly. Dr. Wax is on turntables, I'm on sax with loop station, effects, and KP3+.

Here's the spotify link:

Here's the youtube linke

We had a ton of fun doing this.

This is Ambient Space Sounds. Just me and a synth making some haunting and beautiful tracks. I really thought there was a lot of emotion captured in these tracks. They streamed fairly well for about a year and a couple of them still get some listens. This is a great album to put on for sleep - or if you like epic, ambient, space sounds.

Here's one I'm really proud of - O.M.N.I.

https://open.spotify.com/user/petersonentertainment/playlist/1cJveStmcBdmoM7RFrfsPv?si=xO2TRaSyT-uF0GXNMNHx-g

This started a long time ago, in a hippy-town far, far away.

It started when my friend Zach and I collaborated on a recording project I put out under my own name called Bump - https://open.spotify.com/album/2PaltbP3CRt8rncdw0Qqdp?si=UZdBAxL8Sx2vS3J903rD4g

This is also the same project that I met DJ Law on and even have DJ FlipFlip on it. Zach did some turntables, but we also did some samples, and he did some programming and we started messing around with effects. Most of that work is the 2nd half of the album. It was a precursor to NuFunk and Electrodub and we had no idea what we were doing other than trying to have fun and make music we liked.

A few years back we reconnected in Florida for about a week of intense recording. He had some beats and sketches, I had a couple of ideas and we laid down a bunch of horn and synth lines, and tried to develop some of the ideas more. He took the tracks back and worked on them for a year and one day... we out out the first O.M.N.I. recording: Harry's Psychedelicatessan. https://open.spotify.com/album/4nEHLVg312NDo2xLHpbfWu?si=o1LtGJDkSdyLsQs6aRLqjQ

I love this release - it's crushingly funky, got a ton of reggae influence and is electro-dubby all day. I also used some nice guitar pedals on my sax for all kinds of fun.

It's safe to say Zach got bit by the production bug and we were off to the races. Next we hooked up in Texas for album number two - Captain Funktion Vs the Brainwashed Hubron Elbards - https://open.spotify.com/album/4LNSjEXtLhvxokSyhOwcXU?si=D68J0SikTcyfIRu01zMjJg

By this time, Zach had written storylines for the recording, started to develop characters and took a much larger role in producing this recording. He also brought in Ben Hicock as partner in the group. Again he took the tracks back and worked his arrangement magic on them - although it didn't take a year. We also bounced a fair amount of files back and forth - overdubs, new tunes, etc... and Ben really added a lot.

And then came Laniru and Andar. I went up to Brooklyn, NY and spent five days in Chai-Fi studios squeezing out everything we could get - horns, synth, organ, vocals. We brought in a lot of guest artists. Some were a bust, some were a pain in the ass, and one I did back in Texas and sent the files on up to Zach. Wasn't too long before this album popped out and the story line continues. https://open.spotify.com/album/2dzMFxN9aBiEg84QdnGMLp?si=kAwnkNZGSxGB8a7FzumA6Q

Zach has about 20 tracks ready to go and will be down in Texas in June for the next installment. Looking forward to seeing what he's got and where we go with it. It's been a ton of fun working on this project, seeing it develop, bringing in another partner, guest artists. It's not just god music, it's fun, it's fulfilling, and we really care about it. Some of the ideas/tunes I've reworked a little and use them in my solo looping show, I've recorded a couple with other projects... it's just a good time.

We have our own youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/musicomni

here's the compelte playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kr2_baqdk14&list=PLP7p5beCUDXw_eF5a1Bfn0U0IWdvVYONp

While we don't have videos for every tune up, we are occasionally making videos for all three releases. So it's fun to revisit the early stuff and try and get more ears and eyeballs on it. It's pretty creative and interesting.

If you like funky music, reggae, electro-dub, dub, etc... you should really dig this project.

Subject description: Next group - Noise noise noise!!!
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

So this (so far) has just been a solo project. I call it Widespread Noise. It's really more of a catch-all for noise, ambient, avant-garde stuff that I can't really put out under my own name. I've got some my jazz and jazz related things out that I felt like I need to create something else to release different kinds of stuff.

This is intended to be wide ranging in what I'm going to present and it is intended to feature guest artists for collaborations.

Here's my spotify playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/petersonentertainment/playlist/1x5pfAKw4dOALOURjqAyNH?si=i5vlAy6aS8qGXLQhNbqOUw

I've got two albums out:

Blackfly - which is a noise album using the Blackfly from Electro Faustus with some beats and filters provided by my kp3+.
https://open.spotify.com/album/25Pdh6JzuNJRBXSzaPtk1C?si=nS6Hz8AaRgS0DnrZqDsFTQ

Drone - this is something a little more open and created with the Electro Faustus "Drone Thing." https://open.spotify.com/album/0xxxG5mQD7HHPUHO8qzdu8?si=zMqyKDPaTvyxOw56j0xSXQ

So far, this project is a ton of fun as it's an exploration of tech and sound. Lots of newness and surprises. And there's the whole exploration of sound thing as well. I've got some more tech I'm experimenting with for other recording projects and hope to be getting back to those in a few months.

Here's the Youtube playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDbeku5etks&list=PLjiWJF83CBilkN-VWv293NL2YxKMUG6U7

GrooveTronX - www.groovetronx.com

This is currently my favorite electronic collaboration. We're a duo doing NuJazz/Livetronica. Some people have called it smooth jazz with an EDM beat. That's not quite accurate, but it's close enough.

My partner is Johnny Carrera on Laptop and guitar and me on sax, KP3+. KAOSS Pro, and some pedals.

My gear is sync'd to Ableton Live on the laptop and a guitar. We have some pre-programmed tracks that Johnny controls with Ableton. He triggers the different sections of the songs and we take turns playing over top as soloists and playing together. I'll do looping and sampling as a solo, underneath Johnny, and to lay down additional backing parts. Sometimes we get complex and sometimes it's simple.

Here's a great live video from several months back. We're opening up our show at Tacoland in San Antonio, TX.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snxHEsYA-8s

We record a lot of our shows and release digital albums on a somewhat frequent basis.

Our first release is "Bright Lights, Big City" and is here on Spotify.
There's some boo-boos on here, but it was an early capture of some live jams that we were pretty happy with. I still enjoy this entire recording - mistakes included.
https://open.spotify.com/album/2Vsie95W6AosZqkCH3jEfq?si=4H829hFyRl67hzrh88yJFA


Our 2nd release "Electric Aesthetic" https://open.spotify.com/album/6C84SLw2bfnmbTTkP10iPz?si=YeqAH7ziTOilNEbaByO4wA
is clearly better in terms of familiarity. Still sounds great, lots of interplay, new tunes, and 100% live. I spent weeks listening to this over and over in the car.

The most recent release "GrooveTronX: NuJazz at the Tobin Center" is our favorite so far. This was a live performance for the Texas Star Awards at the Tobin Center in San Antonio. We really stretch out on these tracks and have some supreme moments (in our opinion). https://open.spotify.com/album/6CdDn1Lbl19utMT7Mxj7yw?si=X9NvkjfDRgu2vWxI2LaEvw

All in all - this is very much smooth jazz/easy listening/electronic music. We dig it quite a bit, we have a musical residency playing 3 times at month at Halcyon in the Southtown neighborhood that we've had for over a year. And now that I've pretty much stopped touring, we're going to push this project more. We also bring lights and a visual projection to add interest to what we're doing. This is a great background thing, with enough going on for people to focus in and really listen and sometimes people get up and dance.

I don't know where this is going exactly, but I know we'll be doing it for quite awhile.

I'm always working on producing content. And while it's awesome to post my blasts from the past on here; I really wanted to be posting new things.

But I think some context and history is always a good thing - so I started with some older stuff. as a music fan, I've always a enjoyed hearing bands/artists develop (even if I didn't like the "new" stuff).

And while spring in Texas is a very busy time for me, my obligations are winding down and it's back to content creation! Yay! Of course I have all the usual stuff: twitter, facebook, instagram, google+, tumblr, spotify, youtube, etc... but it's fun to have a new place to post my goodies, or in this case, noisies.

Here's two new videos from Widespread Noise off of the Drone release. I really enjoy going back and working on videos for these things as it forces me to get back INTO the music. It's not the same as listening. It's really working on and with the music. I get to rediscover the sounds, remember the creative moments, and evaluate how it came out. These days, there's a lot of joy in that. I love new sound toys and making all kinds of music.

Enjoy these noisy clips. All made with the Drone Thing from Electro-Faustus.

The newest video from O.M.N.I. - Runnin'

Keeping up with the new stuff... this is a basic stepper. Really love the groove and the backing horns. Had some fun with the video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqL0s1wVLU0

Reggae/Electro/Electrodub/Raggamuffin/roots - an eclectic electric mix.

Here's my first live looping recording.

https://open.spotify.com/album/47LweoFal8BUtPz8HwfAEx?si=wPbgB0W2ReWSgBvs3CIe3g

I call it the Solo Sax Sessions. This was my first looper (that I kept) the RC-50 along with some effects pedals. I have some Tropical jasm, jazz, blues, rock, Latin, African, and a couple of jams written specifically for loop station. I had a lot of fun writing and arranging these tunes for loop station and had performed them hundreds of times all across the U.S. before recording them.

The recording itself was a pretty lo-fi, "project studio" but the performances are ferocious. I still enjoy listening to this project. Some of these are really great. And it's unedited, all live, all done in one session, and all just me.

Here's the official youtube playlist for the album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFGRUsxyGbQ&list=PLjiWJF83CBikPskxU133UVumzfHj-t87f

Here's the first year of live videos from me doing my loop station thing. A lot of the same tunes, but early on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLehzEN8ghs&list=PLjiWJF83CBimVEiv2T9qwUlArlBFJsi1e

Here's the next batch after adding some new tech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfZ2LBDXJXE&list=PLjiWJF83CBikVK0Tsg1BmMdxTdnQjAUzr

Here's another batch of videos from shows around the U.S., Looping festivals, new tunes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtugP5cQJVE&list=PLjiWJF83CBimTiBbXN4iUuNlvZmNOLc0S

Pretty crazy....
