DAAKOO

love is the ultimate outlaw
it just won't adhere to any rules
the most any of us can do
is sign on as its accomplice

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind radion

radion (long story):
 a scalar field in quantum field theory 
in spacetimes with additional dimensions

radion (short story):
a rave club in amsterdam that still thrives

not sure why I'm drawn to such sound/imagery atm
djs & beatmakers
who would have thought
being able to move so many people
in the moment like that
with just a few toys
and crystal clear
volume

I remember back in the early 90's
 working at cherry beach sound studio in toronto
there were these illegal raves 
that would blow in and would be packed
quietly rented warehouse out back
almost under the radar

curious one night late, finishing a session ... I went
sketchy bouncers, $20 to get in, right ok - loud
all they had to drink was this kool-aid punch
for $3.  I was thirsty
the sound & visuals were stunning
walking into it, drinking my punch

I was the oldest guy there
like 40 what?

realizing these kids were lit like christmas trees
only because I was too

total blast

DEAD AHEAD


sometimes
by losing a battle
you find a way, to win the war

carry the battle to them  

don't let them bring it to you  
put them on the defensive 
and don't ever apologize

for anything

Harry S Truman

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind dead ahead

it's a POV thing
corn fields?  right
long story
no time

alpha bravo charlie
whisky delta tango
we are ready to fight for our right
to believe in our country ... and

there's nothing in this manual
that says I have to like you
you look different
so, na ... so you?
gotta go

battle lines drawn - shadowy shapes shifting
enemy in my sights ... dead ahead
a blast from the past - then the future
collateral damage imminent
how does it feel
to be a casualty

nope, that doesn't belong to you
it belongs to us

putting these sounds together
something different
finding this game stuff 
playing with it
with the music
rearranging 

kinda works - fun to watch
layering in more synths and voices
on the final pass before merging
the final audio mix from logic 
to the fine cut/picture edit
in final cut








I don't get war, never did
for some (many), it's just what is
never questioning why
we humans hate each other
so much

we just do

RUN


your mind is beautiful and wise
inside a masterful disguise

when all I want to do is run
when all that’s left is said and done
it's all I want to do

AUDITION

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind audition
Feb/20

remix of a remix

right
think of it like there's this amazing cake
and now there's icing on it

ok, after a spurt of originals from scratch

I'm back into remix land here
there is this small scene, primarily in London U.K.
just a few years old
in my ongoing curiosity for fringy shit
I came upon it - very cool

it's loosely called 'wave' and is the vision

of a few young European electronic music beatmakers
the most notable being French born øfdream
who took his own life last year
this is his remix of London dark wave dj
verasect

it was about 5 minutes long

I took about 2 minutes, chopped it up
then stretching it out, kicking it up a notch
adding more analog synths and voices
ample logic automation on the mix
a total blast

the idea of crusty old men
gawking at a pole dancer came up early on
the track really ripped but felt incomplete and 
I needed something visual that would cut
I think making the clip was as much fun
it feels finished now

this is my 4th øfdream reconstruction

earlier remixes are on two lives & three lives
(links below)
now watch it again (and crank it)!

let's dance
