To be honest I really like the music he’s playing. It’s not techno but I like it better than a lot of other stuff I hear. His speech is pretty awesome too. Anyone know what TV show or movie this is from?

Well it’s that time of year where Americans pig out and say thanks for all they have. I do have a lot to be thankful for. A good job, friends, family and health. So thanks for that and I mean it. More importantly thanks for inspiration. I’m making a lot of music and somehow I’m not repeating myself. Since this is an American holiday I posted two videos above that show some of America in action. Sure I could post our troops at war or something like that but honestly most of us are just working and playing.

Here’s a look into vocal recording with house music vocalist Robert Owens using Logic at UK based Point Blank music school. I really enjoy watching other people record.

“Robert Owens (born 1961) is an American contemporary R&B and house-music vocalist best known for his work with the Chicago house group Fingers Inc. in the mid-1980s. As a solo artist, he has placed several songs on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, two of which hit #1: “I’ll Be Your Friend” (1992), and “Mine to Give” (2000, a collaboration with Photek).” – Wikipedia

Indeed.

“The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is a trust that represents the recording industry distributors in the United States. Its members consist of record labels and distributors, which the RIAA say “create, manufacture and/or distribute approximately 85% of all legitimate sound recordings produced and sold in the United States”.” – Wikipedia.org

Yesterday’s post where I asked the question if your a musician should you fight piracy was very interesting. Most people agreed with my first inclination that you want the most fans no matter what the means. Therefore today I ask: Should musicians post all their music; full length songs on YouTube? Here’s my reasoning. Over time fans are going to post your full songs on YouTube. If you have a music video they will repost that. If you don’t have an official video they will just put the song up with some text or often they will get creative and have a slideshow of photos of you or something similar. Why not beat them to the punch this way you control the video? If you control it you can at least add links to buy your tunes somewhere legal. You can have your own annotated links, images, etc… If the song is a hit you could even make some money with Google AdSense. I’ve attached two examples to this post. The first one for my song One Night in NYC. It has over 800,000 views but I wasn’t the one who uploaded the the video. I certainly wish I did so. Maybe I can claim it somehow without it loosing it’s view count? The second example is for a song I recorded “Soul of Emptiness”. Someone just played the record and displayed the lyrics. I think most fans know the YouTube audio quality is cassette-ish so if they love the song they still seek out a better version to own. What do you think? Upload each song in full to YouTube starting on day one?

So you finally going to get an iPad today? iPad 2 is out so why not? Ready for some music making apps right? Don’t forget to have some fun too! You could grab all the games below for less than half the price of a PS3 game. These are my favorites. Certainly these are not going to be everyone’s picks. I like quick retro vector future pick up and play games. Some of these are iPhone games but look great blown up on the iPad screen. Enjoy your new toy!

K1 Clip – Demo by thingstocome

Here’s some music I recorded for a German female producer. It’s in her court to add vocals for this and send it back to me. You’re hearing two slightly detuned Yamaha CS5 lines. Both are going through D16 Devator’s. You also hear white noise from the CS5 modulated through Ableton’s Auto-Pan. Assorted booms are my own recordings and swing is up.

Alles klar?
