Old Album released at several links

I have now posted an old, unreleased album at Last.fm. and at a Mediafire link.
"Cyberthief 2" was recorded way back in 2003-2004, and only a few tracks from it were available. Now, anyone can download it from Last.fm.

here's the links:

This old album is my first recorded with Cakewalk 2004, and actually sounds pretty good, now that I've given it another listen. It actually has a bunch of cover songs on it, or at least "parts" of songs that you should recognize. Please note that I did not request permission to use these songs or "snippets" or songs, but I did re-record all the parts myself - NO SAMPLING (hear that Puff Diddy??) I PLAYED everything myself. Myself!

Some of the songs are pretty good, others kind of not so great, but I was still trying to define my style (at as of today, still have yet to do so!).

Visit the page, download, repost if you like on your blogs, torture your landlord, whatever you want, ... just don't re-sell it, you little cyberthieves!!


Some Studio work at MWCC

Hey folks,
I recently helped out an Audio Production Class at the local Community College (taught by local studio owner John Little - Upside-Sound Studio) by playing guitar and having them mike and record my amp. Then they take what they recorded and will mix it, compress/EQ, etc. as their assignment. They also recorded some bass playing via Direct Injection.
I realized just how little I actually know about "real" recording, mike placement, patch bays, etc. These kids really know what their doing, due to their teacher's encylopedic knowledge. I had a lot of fun, and probably learned something.

Check out my MASSIVE Super High-Wattage Metal amp! (a Peavey Rage 158) being attacked by a rabid family of microphones
and here I am in the control room with my P-Bass demonstrating Direct Injection

Very cool stuff! Thanks to the students at MWCC and to their instructor, John Little.


Latest Ego Boost

Well, here's the latest boost to my ever-dwindling ego. The latest tallys of downloads of my albums from The Internet Archive are as follows:

As of March 1, 2008:
Bryson’s Universe - 1,980
Aetherial Art of Decay - 1,447
Leprosia Doom - 1,311
I Am Become Daevel - 925
Dimaensia Nexus - Improvisations for the Ancient Ones - 543
End of an Era - 505
Loco-Motives - 270
Deus Fetor, pt2 - 208

Why keep track and torture you readers with this meaningless info? Ah, who knows? I like to see that people actually like my music. It makes me feel good. That's it. Ego Boost.

Does it mean I'm actually a decent musician? Well, we all know that Paris Hilton and William Hung (did you know he was actually offered a $25,000 advance for his album??) will always sell thousands of albums to the mindless drones, so numbers don't really matter. I just hope my music has entertained someone. That's all. If you enjoyed my music enough to download and burn to a disc or portable player, then I sincerely thank you.

Hey, it's FREE, right?
