When I started working on the 7th Sea demo for Girls of Darwa Town, I quickly realized that I needed to upgrade a few elements of my recording rig – particularly my monitors. Well, “upgrade” isn’t quite the right word considering that I didn’t actually have ay monitors. Truth be told, up until that point I’d been mixing with Apple’s iPhone earbuds. And, as it turns out, those are embarrassingly terrible to   Read More ...

*Pretends like it hasn’t been over two years since his last post* Hi, everybody!

Everything about that film says, “Don’t bring your ten year old son to see   Read More ...

Take a close look at that photograph. Notice anything special about it? Anything… familiar? I don’t want to brag or anything, but yeah, I’m in there. That’s me as Enjolras, the  villainous, very macho (but not as macho as Javert) leader of the ABC Cafe student uprising. This is, of course the all-important moment of the show when Javert, our hero, decides to infiltrate the treacherous band of students in   Read More ...
