It’s been a while!

I just wanted to make a new post, and say hi and inform you that some musical examples that I was hired to engrave for an article has been published.

Word, Image, and Song, Vol. 1: Essays on Early Modern Italy

The article title is Strophic Form in the Canzonettas of Orazio Vecchi, Luca Marenzio, and Claudio Monteverdi by Dr. Ruth DeFord.


I’ve been in retro-music mode.  Today, I’ve listened to complete albums by Bouncing Souls, Bad Religion, Unwritten Law, Lagwagon, and 88 Fingers Louie, and T.S.O.L.  Rockin’ out hard – pretty rad.

I went Salant Studio to cut some drum tracks, but I’m not going to tell you what they are for yet.  I’ll be going back in a few weeks to complete my project, and also co-producing a friend’s  new material.

So, my pal Josh Salant, who owns the studio, has a nice set up, and I’m taking his idea.  I’ve rearranged my room to accommodate my Pro Tools rig again.  I’ve purchased monitor stands for my studio monitors and I’m looking into getting a swivel, wall mount for my TV/Computer monitor.  The computer monitor will float above my Macbook Pro monitor.  It’ll look sick.
