NEW ARTIST FEATURE ON THE BAYANIHAN PROJECT!!!
Im pretty sure you guys know by now that i am really excited about all the tracks that my friends and colleagues donated for TBP, a fundraising campaign i started for typhoon #haiyan victims in the Philippines. But i am really excited about this because i have a previously unreleased and totally new track from one of my good friends Felipe Mejia
If you do not know him yet, you should look him up. I met him in school and he is a super talented Producer / Engineer / Sound Designer / Audio person from Colombia and i was really stoked when he gave me this track because i really look up to his work.
more about him and his track “Omega Centauri” in the next couple of days. for now, enjoy listening to this!
Donate to help rebuild lives of typhoon victims in the Philippines and receive an amazing album for free!
ALBUM DELIVERY THIS WEEK! (FOR THOSE WHO ALREADY DONATED!!!!)
"…Through darkness and bleakness
Through tunnels and weakness I go
From darkness into light
Through shadows of the night I go…”
I love these lyrics! As some of you might have known. Jess Harlen Music is the current featured artist of The Bayanihan Project, a fundraising i started for typhoon victims in The Philippines and she generously donated this track “I Go” to the compilation. Listen to it!
Get it for free as well as an amazing compilation album from great artists which i will feature soon when you donate!
Thanks for your time! Hope you all are having a great day!

Jimmy Fallon, The Roots and Carly Rae Jepsen’s clip reminded me of a couple of things today:
1. dynamics plays a big part in any genre of music. (even in a simple video like this, ?uesto can school any other drummer how to be incredibly dynamic LITERALLY, check out how he goes in an out, ain’t that much more impactful? i wish 90% of musicians understood that)
2. a good song doesnt need fancy instrumentation to be a good song, im pretty sure you can sing that tune by itself and understand the theme and message. incidentally, they used the “randomest” instruments to supply the harmony and rhythm.
3. stop taking your craft too seriously and have a little fun.
4. sometimes a simple message can be conveyed better across millions of people rather than a deep seeded mouthful thats full of insight. I guess you can chalk this up to message “dynamics” as well.
5. So many people think this kind of stuff is “sellout” crap, but coming from a production standpoint, i think this song is well thought out and exercises extreme discipline in harmony and rhythmic choices. (great job Josh Ramsay)
6. dont play your recorder backward. HAHA
7. always get Frank Knuckles to play bongos
good morning! peace to all you hAtErZzzZZZZzZZZ!!! ^_____^
A little piece of electronic music history for all you enthusiasts.
Its extremely humbling to know that all these tools that the modern “producer” and “DJs” came from the patience and hardwork of all these academic - research - science oriented musicians!
I have been fortunate enough to have met this man, along with Barry Vercoe and Miller Puckette in the MIT Media Lab. He’s my teacher’s mentor.
Currently making this Massive patch. for the Malay track im working on. Its just a simple noise oscillator with an all-pass filter thats being modified by a performance envelope. I also assigned a step sequencer to the panning and color of the oscillator.
Nothing complicated yet. Just happy to be doing sound design on a sunday! Will get back to this later. I wish i had a nasty Distressor to smash this baby after. Oh well. thats why you have plugins!
Im sure all you sound design folks can already imagine what this sounds like just by looking at the patch (step sequencer is really simple peaks sorta like on and off)
i duno why i just started using that new Channel Strip plugin that came with PT10. Its amazing!
I think this production is really well made and tasty. from the music production, to the video and to the concept. Im just not sure about that rapper, im sure hes a nice guy and all, but the track could do better without him.
excellent effort nonetheless! happy to see stuff like this come out from Manila. I hope she eventually finds her own unique sound as she progresses in her career. Its a great start anyway!
Im gonna but this album.
