San Francisco to LA in 5 Days (on a Bicycle)

I recently had a little adventure out in California, visiting my brother in San Francisco, then riding with him down to San Jose to see the Cirque du Soleil Volta show my sister works for.

Slapping Together Selected Sections of 'Singleton' from Synchronized Seasoning

Here’s a little video clip documenting some of the writing process for “Singleton” from Synchronized Seasoning. The latter half shows the development of a new chord—the “heartbeat chord”—based on real ECG data. It sounds terrible, but it serves to encode more information into a song that will be at least partially about relationship type stuff, or “matters of the heart.” Hopefully it isn’t too ridiculous.
