New music! All the new stuff is getting close and kind of secret for now, but I have plenty of little demos and stuff. I’ll drop some random speakershots daily. Here’s a groovy little ditty I made recently:
OK, I’m feeling really nice… here’s a sneak peek at Future Caveman
I’m in this weird zone in the creative process. I think I’m going nuts, actually. I’ve released lots of music in the past, and I usually have some sort of release coming out, or something to show the world. It’s been my thing. Lately I’m in this zone of having projects very close, but still a lap to go. I feel like I’m in a sensory depravation chamber.
Almost two years ago I started down a path to make a “real” record with Jake and Brett, and we called our band Cruise Elroy. Meanwhile, I started a project with two students called Future Caveman and committed to making a great record with them, too.
Since then, I’ve done nothing but work on those records, and maintain my new career as a jingle writer in the New York City advertising scene.
To say it’s been difficult is the biggest understatement I can imagine. That’s like saying it’s difficult to give a rectal exam to a live bear.
To say it’s been fun is also an understatement. It’s been hilarious, enlightening, motivating, exciting, life-changing, bla bla bla.
To say it’s been horrible is… well, that’s kind true, too. It’s been lonely, hectic, stressful, dark (like, physically, I’m a damn vampire).
Every day means a hectic commute, usually around 9 hours at the office, in a new career that requires 100% of my mind, focus, and socio-political skills (which are humiliatingly pathetic). And then a desperate dash to work on projects. Rehearsals, tracking, mixing, writing, singing, playing. I’m also creating a video game for the release of the Future Caveman record, creating music videos for both groups, and brainstorming awesome ways to release them sons of bitches. Meanwhile I fight the increasing onslaught of social media, try to get at least 6 hours of sleep a night, and I still somehow manage to get my laundry done. Well, sometimes.
Did it sound like I was bitching just now? Oops. No, I was more bragging.
Do you want to help? I’m tentatively looking for pixel artists, web designers, 3D design artists or animators, film editors, and more. If you would like to help me please email me at starfoxsixty4 at gmail. We can have lots of fun!
