David Gilmour (featuring Richard Wright) – “Time” – 2007

Just can't seem to get this tune out of my head lately, perhaps because I'm getting up there into my senior years... It's most definitely fitting. That said, I decided to produce a music video of a spectactular performance of the song, with on-screen lyrics for all you Millennials out there.

Advances in Recording Technology: Deconstructing Sgt. Pepper

Although that method can be used with just about any DAW out there, the one I'm about to … Continue reading Drum Enhancement In Mixes Using the REAPER DAW

The Return Of Living Colour!

One excellent, very underrated band has returned, and is now on tour for the first time in forever. Best of all, Corey Glover is back with them on vocals to boot! You may have heard the song that broke Living Colour into the music mainstream, called "Cult Of Personality". Even if you've heard it before, it's definitely worth another listen.

Introducing Mike Milan Dedic

So, this dude I've never heard of contacts me through Facebook Messenger out of the clear blue sky and asks if I would mind posting his latest video here, entitled "Launch (Re-launch)". It blew me out of my shoes. If you like Instrumental Rock, you're going to love this. Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Mike Milan … Continue reading Introducing Mike Milan Dedic
