robot, dancing

July 20th, 2014

Some things take a lot of work, and some things just fall right there into place. This is of the latter. Just had an idea one morning to do some identity work for my ongoing music project, Dance Robot, Dance. This started out years ago consisting of only computer-based electronic music made with software and has expanded into a sprawling thing that covers all the instruments I know how to play as well as interesting recording techniques and editing processes. I chose my main four tools to use here: electric guitar, accordion, modular synthesizer, and sax.
The result here was created digitally, but I’d like to use it with rubber stamps and screen-printing, for starters.

Disquiet

February 17th, 2009

If you’ve explored my site at any length, you might have stumbled across my audio page, labeled “noise” on the menu up there. This is my little hobby area where I play out my secret life as a dj and electronic musician. I have a small room in my house with a red desk on which lives a pile of devices for making sounds. These include a turntable, a synthesizer, a MIDI keyboard, an old Casio thing, a touch-controller, and wads of cables.

Recently, I registered a domain name for the sole purpose of making an internet home for the things I make in this room. My plan is to move the noises away from MrBiggs dot com, and onto this new domain, which is DanceRobotDance dot com.

My friend Marc, who I know from back in the wild and wooly comics days, is also an electronic music guy. He’s had a wbsite for as long as I can remember called Disquiet dot com on which he writes about music, and which is one of the few sites to which I have subscribed via RSS. I’ve discovered a lot of terrific music via Marc’s site, and even when I don’t love what he’s got up there, I like reading what he has to say about it. When I got a few tunes up on Dance Robot Dance the other day, I sent him the link.
Today, Marc made Dance Robot Dance and my use of the web site Soundcloud.com for hosting my sound files the subject of a Disquiet post. Check it out.

Ride

July 30th, 2007

Went out riding with the kids this last Saturday. Then I spent some time with Wilson yesterday in my new Premiere CS3 checking out the features. We remapped the time and sped things up, added titles, and imported a new version of an older tune. See it all here. If you aren’t happy with Vimeo, see it on Youtube as well. Enjoy.
