Bedrock_2 Here is the new piece, named for the practice studio in Ecco Park where I tracked the drums.
Used my macbook pro, scarlett 2i2 and Earthworks TC20 mics.
This was all about reconnecting with the drums and working out some rhythms I was feeling inside.
Drum parts were written first and synth parts after.
I have been in LA for a year now, as of Jan 10th. I am almost completely disconnected from music right now.
My time goes to establishing myself as a chef and trying to make a living. That’s life right?
I have to create and while my work is not uncreative, something is lost because I have to do it.
Finding time to create on my own terms is another, non financial, survival.
Cheers to my multi talented friend Jason Little.
I am remembering back to 08 when the studio on Maujer was an infant and I was itchy to play. My friend Jason, said something like, ” I have a song” so I invited him over for a late night of drinking whiskey in the dark and the rest was magic. I hope you enjoy this and thanks Michael Gittleman for playing bass and Chris Stewart for playing guitar.
And now I am proud to present……

I think it was 2008, (my memory is a bit foggy), that saw me helping build a recording studio in Wiliamsburg Brooklyn. It was a slow project with plenty of frustrations, but man I learned a ton! It has been amazing to have a place to work. I have had the opportunity to do some stuff, some demos, I got to produce a couple of albums, my first in fact. Here is a client list for 2008/2009.

It’s pretty cool to be able to look at this document and see, hey, I actually did some shit! It’s easy to feel like nothing is happening but a little perspective can be nice.
