Check out my studio and techniques on FACEbook
Having instruments lying around the house from a young age, I discovered that sounds and melodies are an endless universe of opportunity to bring beauty into the world. The feeling could be strong and powerful, tranquil, even dark and freaky. Still, I approach most of my songs in a very narrative manner.
Recently I came into possession of a field recorder. Between trips to my backyard woods, and finding random objects in the house, I've been able to record natural 'taps' and textures such as cardboard, bamboo, even animal bones to add an unusual organic flavor to my tunes.
J1 Studios has been a huge part of my life since 2011 when I was taken on board the sound team. Going to conventions and festivals with the team's vendor table to sell comics and video game remix albums is a great time. I grew up with nintendo games, and having the opportunity to make and sell remixes is the best job I could ask for.
