I love to make this music, which is why I make this music. Old records (for the most part children's) found in thrift stores, yard sales and flea markets were the main source of the material along with public domain drum loops, Internet WAV sites, TV shows and movies and
No drum machines, fancy samplers or sequencers were used on this project. Not one shred of original instrumentation, just 100% samples recorded with a basic PC microphone strategically placed up against my stereo speaker and two programs called Sound Recorder and GoldWave.
There is so much material out there it can become quite staggering. Has everything been sampled? Not by a long shot. New sounds are found daily to splice, dice, collage and rework into new compositions.
I've been handing out and leaving CDR copies of my work around my town hoping some innocent soul will pick them up and enjoy them and possibly drop a line and say hello. I would like to thank my family, my brother for input, the computer, the turntables, the microphone, the TV, the Internet, novelty, the bran flakes for inspiration, Demeter, Dionysus, my chair, Otis for asking, and of course all the magical children's records.
