Happy Saturday with Brava.
Happy Saturday with Brava.
Throwing ideas at a computer and hoping for the best somehow.
If you always look horizontally, you’ll never look vertically.
I recently worked with @quoryhavensoluri to mix the whole Floating By EP from scratch. He re-recorded everything and sent them to me to work on and it definitely came out way better than the original. I’m super happy I got the opportunity to redo the first EP I ever worked on and had this be the result of it. Check it out, it’s on all platforms now! @mymanicmindband
I deserve this.
Another album, mixed and mastered. 🎉
11 months ago, I told this girl we were moving halfway across the country and she’s been by my side every step of the way. From when she was a small pup, way too full of herself, till now, she’s been my best friend. One of the things I had to have when I moved here was a big backyard for us to play in and I’m happy we found a place that has that. She keeps me on schedule and keeps me from feeling too down. Gonna take her to the park and then take her for some ice cream. I can’t believe she’s 6 years old today. Happy Birthday, Brava! 🎉
Another album mixed and mastered. 🥳
First day back at the office in 5 months. Going to start coming in at least once a week. Pretty excited to be back.
Just a speck, on a speck, on a speck on a deep unknown.
Idea from a couple months ago.
Nathan Kennedy is finally releasing music on online stores under his name. Give it a spin.
Just released a lyric video for Watch Me Swim! Hope everyone is having a very happy 4th of July!
Coded a web scraper for Bandcamp last night. I didn’t like their API, so naturally I had built my own. Now I have a JSON response with any band’s info and detailed discography. It looks at a band’s Bandcamp page, and collects all the available public information by digging through the source code. Might make this open source.
Also, you can straight up steal any band’s music from Bandcamp by looking at the source code and knowing what to look for. In case nobody was in the know. Also, because I have to say it, I didn’t build this tool for that purpose. Please don’t steal music. Support artists. It means the world to them.
Are there any rules to extending an extended play? Asking for a friend…
Brava hates thunderstorms. She also hates fireworks. I hate this for her.
New surprise album from My Manic Mind, available now on Bandcamp! Available on all major music platforms by the end of the week with some awesome artwork that’s still being finalized!
First of all, I’m overwhelmingly proud of Quory Haven Soluri. For a vast majority of people, I don’t think they would have stayed quiet on social media after having their band’s page hijacked by former members. Instead, he wrote an album in 4 days. Thursday he had 0 songs, on Sunday I had 6 brand new songs that were fully written and recorded, mixed, mastered and sent back to him. The thing about Quory is, you simply don’t tell him he can’t do something because he’ll absolutely prove you wrong. I’ve missed working with this dude and he is one of the most talented friends that I’ve had the pleasure of working together in music. If you’ve supported My Manic Mind in any way, give this a listen. Quory is steering a new ship now and it has a new sound. I’m very thankful to him for allowing me to produce this and trust me with my ideas towards it. This is some of not only his best work, but I believe mine as well. I’ve never gotten a cleaner mix or a master to be as dynamic as this is. I’d love to hear everyone’s feedback on it.
Being in My Manic Mind for over a year and a half, I understood the dynamic very well and who did what. My decision to leave the band was influenced by the actions of a certain member at the time and my idea to leave New York. Music is about community and is, for a lot of people, their escape from the drama of work, family, politics, etc. Divisive issues shouldn’t be used to divide fans.
Much respect to Quory for his calm and collected approach to handling this situation. For those who have unfollowed the band due to what was said on the page, please reconsider and support this version of My Manic Mind. It has my full backing, if that means anything. After hearing the plans and demos for the full-length next, you’ll wanna hear what Quory has in store for it.
Respect, take care, take chances. Enjoy.
Took some photos of Brava today. It’s been awhile since we’ve done this.
I’m stoked to finally be able to do this again.
This whole “write one song a month” thing is going well so far.
I’m extremely proud with how this build turned out. Now running @ghost on Ubuntu on a Raspberry Pi 4.
10 minutes into introducing Brava to our new house and she’s already cozy.
This is my new place…
