Well, I have actually had this posted on my page for about a week now but realized that I have not updated my home page to reflect it. Over the Thanksgiving break, I dropped track number 4 on my album. This one is called “SpaceCase” and originally began as a loop experiment in Garageband. However, I had a weird desire to watch the ‘death’ of HAL9000 on YouTube and suddenly got inspired to finish the song… I think it has something to do with daisy (100 cool points if you get that). The result is actually more like 50/50, it is half loops and half personal compositions.
Shortly after putting the music out there, it has become a favorite of virtually all the people whom I have shared it with. I even find myself listening to it more than the others I have created so that is a good descriptor that it has something special about it. I am in the process of getting logos created and have someone looking seriously at creating a video for me so I can post it on YouTube and expose it to more people there. Life sure is exciting at the moment!
I can tell I am really getting in to this whole music production thing and here is why. I purchased a MacBook Pro 17″ that is quite powerful (got it for a steal on CraigsList). I reinstalled OS X Snow Leopard since the version it came with was pirated (no media provided). I also made my first visit to the Apple Store, now THAT was a trip! Now, I have it all the way reloaded and I am using Garageband to create my next work. It looks like a really good solution now that I have learned how to edit in the piano roll among other things. Expect occasional postings about strange things my Mac does… being an IT guy from a Windows world this is a whole other animal.
I have begun work on a new song but it is still very rough as I am still learning the interface. However, I am sure that will pass in time. I even have a Korg MINI keyboard (it has like… 15 keys and is the size of a standard keyboard) that I hope to start using soon. It is not as nice as the 40-60 key pianos but considering it is my birthday in a few weeks and Christmas not long after, I am being threatened with beatings by my wife if I purchase any more goodies. It’s not my fault my list for this year STARTS at $99 and goes all the way up to $500 (Logic Studio Pro is expensive lol). We’ll see how much loot I get soon, but it may not be posted for a while with the holidays coming soon. Stay Tuned!
Joy of joys and love of loves! My latest song is released! Please take a moment to enjoy my latest creation: DJ6i – AngelSpun. This was based off a 3 note melody that I have had stuck in my head for months and no matter what I do, I cannot get it out of my head… UNTIL NOW! I welcome your comments and thanks for listening to my humble creations.
DJ6i – OUT!
I am overflowing with creativity lately! I have already begun the creation of my next song entitled “Angelspun” which is the polar opposite of “DarkMind”. Once I finish the ending and put it through the mastering process, I will have it up here. Stay tuned!
I was debating whether or not to post it but decided that I would go ahead and let you guys take a look at it. The first thing I wrote outside of my practicing files was this brief loop I call “Head Asplode.” If you aren’t sure what that means, check out the songs page and get an explanation.
It’s only 30 seconds or so but enjoy! DJ6i – Head Asplode.
It’s been a long time coming but I have officially launched my own music production site! I am taking on the name of DJ6i for this case and I will explain why in the “About” section. For now, here is my first ever release. I call it “DarkMind” and it is truly a symphonic song of creepy proportions. Will all my music sound this way? There’s no way to tell but as long as they are all as awesome as this then I don’t care!
DJ 6i Out!
