I put together this video documenting the creation of Sample Replay Society’s new stem kit series, “Switched-on SRS,” curated by G Koop & O-man and inspired by the legendary Wendy Carlos.
We deconstructed and painstakingly (and respectfully) re-constructed 3 Bach preludes and one Fugue at G Koop’s incredible studio “Fuzz Deluxxe” in Oakland, CA, utilizing his impressive collection of vintage gear and synthesizers. The multi-track recording sessions are made available, royalty-free, to producers in need of samples for music-making.
Here are the four beats Koop made to demonstrate the versatility of Bach’s mastery in a hip-hop context (all from the Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1):
Notefighter is an app-in-progress that lets you ninja-kick your way to note-identification. It is in its demo stages right now, but go take a look at http://www.notefighter.net

Much obliged to PJCE who helped me release my debut album with Dan Duval, then they featured me at the Portland Jazz Festival with some amazing musicians. I love having new friends in Portland.
My student and friend Andrew Boxill wrote a beautiful tune that I will be recording later this year for my upcoming album. I wanted to capture his performance of his composition, so I grabbed a camera.
Please forgive the shaky audio quality and the rough camera-work. I love this piece, and I love Andrew’s performance. Enjoy!
