Thanksgiving 2012

Well it’s that time of year where Americans pig out and say thanks for all they have. I do have a lot to be thankful for. A good job, friends, family and health. So thanks for that and I mean it. More importantly thanks for inspiration. I’m making a lot of music and somehow I’m not repeating myself. Since this is an American holiday I posted two videos above that show some of America in action. Sure I could post our troops at war or something like that but honestly most of us are just working and playing.

Thanksgiving 2011

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I have a mountain to be thankful for. I’m healthy, working and making music often. It’s only 1:30 but so far I demoed some software synthesizers I had my eye for a while. I tried the Madrona Labs Aalto, UH-E ACE and the XILS-3. They were all interesting and if your a soft synth person I could recommend them all. I did the the XILS-3 the best though. That said, they don’t compare to my new AS Telemark so I zapped them from my hard drive. I uploaded an “old” demo to Soundcloud as an apple pie was being created in my kitchen. I’m off to my mother’s house soon for the big eating. I really do appreciate everyone who visits Wire to the Ear so that’s one more thing I am thankful for in 2011.

“I celebrate Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land.” – John Stewart
