i’m playing my very first show this week
i was so worried i baked a whole cake. and then i ate a whole cake. i’ve got another cake cooking. you can come over and we could eat it. or just smash our faces into it.
what happened to working for your aunt? i also remember you telling me one time that you weren't happy with your 404, why have you changed your mind?
haha who is this? i can’t remember the last time i talked about working for my aunt. that was 2012. i actually haven’t spoken to her in months. not intentionally or anything, but if you know about me working for her then i probably told you about what happened to her so you know she’s physically disabled now and she just gets really bad sometimes and doesn’t like to communicate or have company.
and the 404. i never spent time to actually learn how to use it properly until recently. i have been playing with it every day for hours so i finally have found my rhythm with it so i love it! i used to get really impatient with instruments. like if i didn’t understand it or especially if i thought it didn’t do what i wanted (i had a microkorg and sold it after using it like 5 times because i thought that it didnt “have organic sounds” then i realized i just never explored or manipulated sounds and now i wish i had one), i would just get rid of it. and that was absolutely ridiculous haha i was just being lazy and expecting things to just magically happen or instruments to sound exactly how i wanted without putting any effort into. so stupid haha but yes, i just love it now that i know it so well.
patience is so important in creating. very well learned lesson.
i sing this song and you love me all the time
wow thats cool that you use only that one thing :) what kinda stuff can u do with the sp-404? I've read abt it but it seems confusing
i don’t have a job right now so i can’t buy anything else so i just have to work with what i’ve got. plus the 404, cord, and mic all fit in my purse so it’s really easy to carry around (i would like a little portable amp though so i can play in the woods and stuff but that would fit too if i got one small enough). i love it though, it’s definitely not confusing. i mean i used to think so but once you get one in front of you and just mess around with it for a bit it’s all really simple.
how u make ur music? like what kinda stuff do u use to create it all?
sp 404, that’s it. just me and a little machine and a mic. but all of the samples i make myself. a lot of it is like keyboard/piano or guitar, just a little loop, then i put a bunch of effects on it (reverse a lot). also a lot of baby toys and found objects.
i recently was given this acoustic guitar that someone was going to throw away and when i was checking it out i realized it is the most perfect instrument i’ve ever experienced. it fits my body and hands and fingers so well and all the edges and fret markers look opalized! ah it’s so perfect. but it needs new strings and bridge pins so as soon as i get that done i want to start making acoustic songs. but still with lots of samples buzzing around and all that noise.
