One Two, One Two, One One

One Two, One Two, One One
What is it like to drive 1400 MPH? I used an HD Flip Video Camera and recorded a video of a full length drive from Chesapeake to Hampton Virginia, including a traffic jam, going through the Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel, stopping for an iced tea at Sonic drive thru – and getting lost in residential Hampton. ...

My Daughter is away on a mission trip in Canada and I have been missing her a lot. Usually I include the individual mix tracks on the Open Source Music Project – but this time the mixdown is pretty much exactly the content of the individual tracks – I’s a slow soulful song I hope ...

I have been on an extended visit to my Brother Steve’s place near Atlanta as he recuperates from some surgery. He is getting along fine, and I am heading back to Virginia in a couple of days. Meanwhile I just had to do some kind of music while I was here. I mean two weeks ...

Second Chances

Second Chances
I worked on this one a good long time –so the finished recording is somewhat dense compared to “Still In The Night” – but I still left most of the tracks I recorded out of the mix. And the title… well If I were writing lyrics to this melody there would be the phrase “Second ...

Still In The Night

Still In The Night
This is really a great melody. Although I tried to keep this clean with simple instrumentation it ended up getting a little complicated. There is a bass line track in there I played manually and another one generated by the automated accompaniment track in my Technics Digital Piano. When I took out the accompaniment track ...

I am sure there will be a post detailing this further – but all my personal and professional web sites are in one master directory inside my Rackspace server account. Several weeks ago the sites were hacked by a program called a SQL Injection Trojan – which is a sort of attack dog on the ...
