I have been working with Diamonds of Neptune for a long time now and the recordings we started a little while were finally finished a couple of weeks ago. We had a launch gig which I mixed that went really well and since then we’ve seen play by Triple J Unearthed‘s Rosie Beaton and as of today, breaking into the top 10 of the Unearthed charts!
I recorded and produced the recordings and we all mixed it with the help of Aaron Dobos (who added heaps to the mix by the way!). Overall, pretty good vibes at the moment. – Also, the fact that my site’s theme is exactly the same as Aaron’s is completely coincidental, honestly!
Some quick footage of a drum session during the making of the Felix Ferocious album which I am producing. Hope you enjoy!
I’m back again to this website of mine! It’s a pretty cool place here trust me, 85% cool even..
Anyway, I’m going to try keep this website rocking for real so here’s an update to make this stuff seem legit(er).
The Archer & Bow song got mastered which is awesome, we went through Studios 301 in Sydney and it sounds great, I’m really excited to see how their fans like it – I’m definitely proud of the work we did on the single.
What else.. well, I’ve been getting pretty into Logic lately, great program. Really fun to compose on there and it’s so powerful too, interesting to try to see what I can do with it and how far it can get pushed. I also heard that Radiohead and a few other cool bands use it primarily. I’ll admit that made me get on board a bit more. But yeah, I suppose I might start updating my soundcloud a bit more soon to showcase some of the stuff I’ve been fiddling with..
Oh, and I’ve been looking into binaural and ambient on-location recording today, for a ‘creative project’. Getting pretty excited for that!
Alright. I’m bored so probably everyone else is, back to watching Dragon Ball Z!
“Write one sentence that summarizes each year of your life so far.”
Alright here we go:
’92 – Less than one year old and I go international.
’93 – Learning two languages at two at once in Japan.
’94 – Have lived in three countries and only three, now living in Minneapolis, Minnesota, U! S! A!
’95 – Enjoying my last year without school and as an only child.
’96 – My younger brother is born and I probably get way in to lego at this point.
’97 – I only remember losing my brother’s giant mickey mouse ball by kicking it somewhere and forgetting where it was.
’98 – I start kindergarten in a class named after a character from Winnie the Pooh
’99 - Grade one starts in America and finishes in Australia; my family moves back home.
’00 – The millenium olympics are held in Sydney but I don’t really get it or care because I probably still have an accent.
’01 – I get in (semi-)big trouble at school with some of my closest friends because one girl in the group rats out on our swearing game.
’03 - I do well in the various sporting events of the year but after a disappointing sprints and long-distance result (never got that first place!), I pretty much stop all sport in my life for two years.
’04 -I graduate primary school! …and I think to myself, I’m only half way through?
’05 – First year of high school; it’s tough.
’07 – I am in my first band now, we play gigs, one in another town and I am only fifteen for this little ‘tour’.
’08 – I have been playing guitar for a while now and I play and write more than I drum, my friends and I start learning how to record.
’09 – Move city and schools, not so easy but I make some good friends and really begin developing a serious passion for audio.
’10 – School finishes off and my grades are impressive, but I’m focusing on audio and going to SAE.
’11 – Life in Melbourne begins and I start getting serious about my life and audio.
Hmm. That was pretty fun, took longer than I expected, some of those years it was real hard to remember stuff. I also did highlights rather than summaries but hey! I think this challenge has been DEFEATED. Maybe I should have a timeline on my site somewhere.. that could be really cool.
So. I thought I should get some audio content of my own on this site already! As you may have read on here, I won the SAE Sounds scholarship upon starting at SAE. The scholarship essentially revolved around a competition: whoever created the best and most unique remix of a song. I felt very privileged to win the award.
Anyway! Here it is:
…and an interview filmed by SAE! (yes, they mis-spelt my name…)
