Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I am a Bedroom musician from Upper Peninsula of Michigan. And I Started creating music on cassette tapes through radio-waves and creating noise and dream like sounds capes to my walks through the woods with my Walkman.With my "Music has the Right to Children" listening going into the 1000's, I started trying to create my own sounds and pretend maybe I was a missing member of Boards of Canada I had no training, but knew I wanted to make something new to listen too. With just a keyboard, an FM transmitter, a old electric guitar and a delay petal, I went to work on what at the time I was calling "Secret Weapon" Room and recorded 4 Cassette's under that project. Once learning the know hows of creating some sounds and learned I had an ear for a certain sound I was going for, I created the Vacant Minds. Creating this music never starts with a fully realized idea though, its all about the noise at the present time, and creating a mood to immediate sound construction, mostly improvised and finished within a short period or a long period of development, just depend if the sound happen to creep out and take a life of its own. But one thing is for sure, I Never Imaged having any listeners so I thank you everyone and anyone who has ever taken the time to listen, it means the world to me
You can also check out my band camp page at http://secretweaponband.bandcamp.com where there and download my first LP and my second LP for free. Right now I'm working on a huge album, combining both albums, including another one making a full album release of 40 or more songs called "You Have too Disconnect the Past"
