  Bio

I've been recording since the early to mid-80's, starting with a StudioMaster 4-track cassette. I love making everything from simple rock songs to experimental soundscapes. Blind Mime Ensemble is the name under which I release music. I collaborate with other experimental artists at tapegerm.com -- join us if you like. You can see my studio by viewing the pics in my photo gallery here. It's pretty simple.

Change Your Space

Details:

This song started when Joe Maki was visiting from Connecticut and we were trying to get back into recording like the old days. I'd just started playing around with recording apps on iPad and we probably spent more time messing than playing, but we managed to get something started.

After Joe left, I began to work with it. I was frustrated with the bad latency I was getting in Auria Pro on iPad and I had Logic Pro installed on the laptop, but my old bones hadn't gotten around to using it yet; somehow, I made the generational leap and gave it a shot.

When Joe was here, we did kind of a round robin thing where I played something on one track and then he did something, and back and forth. I had started with a basic Em to Am chord progression. Joe has the kind of music sense to come up with chords that play off mine that are different than what I would come up with. This is one of those times -- the Bb chorus is great and comes from Joe.

So I began playing with that in Logic, trying out different software instruments with a piano track and came upon this synth that changed the way the whole thing sounded. It's cool how it blends into the mix of the guitar track which I'm feeding through a feedback of delay and reverb. 

I had been working with the song title for a while. It actually started as a website I proposed to AlphaGraphics. I came up with a website to showcase our interior graphics capabilities -- how we can use vinyl, custom cut signage, display pieces and other things to brand a company's interior. I bought the http://ChangeYourSpace.net domain and built an initial concept if you want to take a look.

So I'd been thinking about that and thought it would make a good idea a for song. If you want a change to happen, don't expect it to come on its own or run away from whatever you think is in  your way. Change your space... make the change happen. You are wherever you are so change where you are and change will unfold around you.

Have you ever felt like cashing in
When it never feels like you'll ever win?
If the past that surrounds you pulls you down
How will change ever come around?

Instead of running away
Why not stay and make a change?
Stay and face your fear and someday
You'll change your space

Just stop for a moment and take it in
Let the thought of change come rushing in...

Instead of running away
Why not stay and make a change?
Stay and face your fear and someday
You'll change your space

The change is bound to turn your life around
Let the light come in and you will be found

Instead of running away
Why not stay and make a change?
Stay and face your fear and someday
You'll change your space

Instead of running away
Why not stay and make a change?
Stay and face your fear and someday
You'll change your space
Change Your Space
