Faith, Music

For the first time in since I've been in college (10 years now), since this summer, I've been consistently been going to church. I feel like it had been something I was actively pushing away, and I can admit now that I know it's something important to me. Hopefully, I will be able to find [...]

Yes, that’s me.

Last week, as I was having breakfast-for-lunch at Louie's, the waitress, whom I have seen around Baton Rouge, told me she had "seen a video on Youtube with the song that's playing right now (in Louie's) where you shove a bunch of grapes in your mouth". The song was 'Heartbeats' by the Knife. And the [...]

Pop Reference

I recently came to a stopping point in an fixed electroacoustic piece that I had been working for a while. "Pop Reference" takes a dialogue I wrote between a pair during a car ride where they confront each on some frustrating situations with their relationship. The dialogue progresses through different exchanges where they both confront [...]

Education

As of late, I've becoming more and more frustrated on how little I know. The more I try to make myself learn, the more disgustingly daunting the task of "catching up" to where I feel I should be seems.

Trombone and Electronics

Stuart Dempster in his The Modern Trombone wrote about the use of electronics: "A tape often is really only a substitute for something that might sound better accomplished by another method; this other method might, however, be prohibitively costly or problematical. Usually the audience is served up this sort of acoustical compromise, or a synthetic [...]

yeah right – art!

Now that everyone's living more virtually than ever and augmenting reality (and augmenting virtual reality), I've decided to jump on this ridiculous band wagon. I've created with pieces of beautiful and unique visual art. You might say they are very similar to someone's else (or similar to each other), but if you look very carefully, [...]

Dream

I had a crazy dream last night and I'm pretty sure I can pinpoint parts in my recent life from where they came and blame it on having 2 cups of coffee and a tea yesterday. [ I had weened myself to a cup a day. ] If anything, it serves for people who don't [...]

ICMC

Tonight was the first day of ICMC. I've met people I've read about in text books. I'm in New York for the first time. The hotel is across the street from Madison Square Garden and a few minutes walk from Times Square. I saw a show off Broadway and tomorrow I'm seeing a play starring [...]

Honest(l)y

<li>Honesty is important. There should be a balance in sharing honesty. That's where straightforwardness comes into play. The italics portions is my opinion. Scroll down for the relevant material. I like honesty and straightforwardness. Everyone likes to know the truth. I've often heard single friends wish that they knew who had a boyfriend/girlfriend- that they [...]
