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.

I've started down a new path exploring new recording methods with an iPad Pro 9.7 Inch.
It's a different approach for me, coming from very basic DAWs like Bias Deck and ACID. Before that I was on 4-track, so this has been a long time coming.
I guess I've always created in phases. I made 100's of recordings on 4-track cassette in the 80's and 90's, tapering off as GAJOOB became a focus and then the beginning of homemademusic.com as an online store and shortrun CD distributor.
Between 2003-2005ish I found another groove and recorded on an OS9 iBook and Bias Deck DAW. I was luck to get 16 mono tracks (basically an 8 track recorder). No MIDI, no extras. I was also using ACID by Sonic Foundry in conjunction with most of my Tapegerm collaborations.
