If you’re unaware of Studio Ghibli, try to imagine an incredibly prestigious film studio centered in Japan that’s responsible for some of the most successful animated films of all time. Spirited Away, Ponyo, Castle in the Sky, My Neighboor Totoro, and the list goes on. However, part of what makes Ghibli’s films so prestigious are the unbelievable scores that were composed for them.
It was 20 degrees at 7 am on that Monday morning in Harvard Square. I was mad that I had just missed the bus, and was standing out in the freezing cold, waiting for the next one.
I had been called for jury duty, and was headed to the courthouse to ask for a postponement since my husband was in the hospital about to have surgery. My mind was filled with anxiety and negative thoughts. “Why didn’t I leave two minutes earlier?” “What if they don’t let me postpone?” “What could go wrong with my husband’s surgery?” “Will I get to him before it starts?”
Among the others at the bus stop was a woman in her 50’s wearing a dowdy hat, an old pair of boots and a dark coat, but she had no gloves. Another woman who looked to be in her mid…
Above and Beyond is known for electronic music. Until last year.
I’ve been a little busy this past week, and I’ve failed to post anything for a little while, so I figured my next post better be a damn good one, and I think this gem just may be the answer. Of course, with 1.9+ million views, chances are you could’ve already listened to this, but even if so, it’s certainly deserving very many more listens.
Here is Above and Beyond, unplugged and live, from Porchester Hall.
As of around a week ago I uploaded a new, free, song. Since then two channels have picked it up with support. So far combined they total close to 700 viewers and counting! I’m very excited and thankful for those who are giving support.
Stay tuned, I’ll have the song of the week posted before Friday. I’m still mulling over it.
I’m consistently working on new sounds for different types of songs. I’m still a fairly young producer and I’ve a lot to learn when it comes to my art, so I don’t feel it wise to just stick with a single genre. I know usually you want to “master” the favored genre but if I get too comfortable in one genre, I’ll get stuck there. Apart from the singles I release (generally independently, I might add) I’m in the beginning stages of making my first real album. I want to blend all kinds of sounds, but I’ll mostly stick a certain “sound” for the album to give it a good flow. Knowing how I work though, that singular “sound” won’t actually come about. But, hey, a boy can try, right?
Anyways, I’m in the midst of another single that will give a small taste of what my album will feel like. However, as of recent, I’ve released a purely electronic song. It’s brand new, and totally free to download.
As for the album, I’ll keep you all regularly updated on its progress. I hope you’re patient 😉
Here is my newest release, “Into the Gate”:
It has been forever since I’ve posted anything. I keep promising I’ll do this regularly but never fulfill that promise. I know I really loved it when I was a regular, so I want to get back at it.
Anyways, I’ll keep it simple today.
Song of the Week is Speed Limits and Jaco’s feat. Joni Fatora “Palm of Your Hand (Alex Klingle Remix)”
