Well, the lappy is going downhill fast. I ended up having to take it in to the shop. I’m awaiting a phone call to find out exactly what’s going to be happening with it. They were going to check the video card, but said that based on the behavior that it could likely be the logic board. Fingers crossed it has something to do with the video card because my AppleCare ran out last month. If it’s the logic board, I’m looking at needing a whole new computer. But if it’s the video card it’s covered under a recall and I won’t have to pay.
Meanwhile back the studio ranch, I’m going to be working on music for yet another uptempo instrumental rock thing, or rather high energy rock thing… Woo Hoo.
I will leave you with this ditty that has come across my screen and speakers recently. It fits quite well with my digital woes. Electric Eyes by Metaform is a very cool little trip into a cross of Electronica mixed with Rock and some DJ style things. I’m really digging the bubble synth sound in the background that also opens the song itself. The drum loop is snappy and huge. You don’t really hear drum samples with so much girth to them. It’s refreshing.
The vocal and all the effects it’s being twisted thru is also very very cool. I’m channeling a sense of Pink Floyd because of it. There’s a more modern sense to it, mostly because of the autotune that is warping some of the phrases. I feel like I could be sitting in a dark room with a single candle and some bitchen headphones pumping this tune deep into my brain. You might be laughing, but this is what we would do at Berklee. Sit in a darkened room and blast music. It would engulf us. Does anyone do this anymore?
Grab this song and more from Metaform. You won’t be disappointed.
