    Simple

    I really hope they come up with a way for we EPers to upload music- original, that is- because I'm having a great (frustrating) time making this stuff. I'd love the honor of sharing it with you fine folks. I made this extremely simple beat, with a drum track, organ...

    THIS Beat Is Killing Me

    I've been reunited with a buddy of mine, from high school/church, and he wants to get his missioning on, in the form of hip hop. I was all for it back in the day when we first met back up, but the time wasn't there. Besides, I still had a lot to learn about making music, even on...

    How I Decided Not To Drop Out Of Graduate School.

    Well, in part it involved traveling to Eastern Europe, Prague specifically, just before the Berlin Wall came down. But the other essential ingredient was the song 'Caribou' by the Pixies. If it hadn't been for that song, and Communist Prague, I would have quit and got a job. ...

    Makin It

    ...is an even more fulfilling thing than just listening to it; if you know what you're after, and have the patience to lay it down, man- it's bliss. I'm one of those 'bedroom producers' that makes music with a computer and a bunch of virtual instruments and samples, and I gotta...

    Music

    I like all genres,  I can find at least one song by most (if not all) artists that I like, for a number of reasons. I have songs because it's catchy, because I like the lyrics, the vocals, the instrumental, the structure, etc. That being said, usually people are...

    I used to teach elementary school music.

    It blew my mind when, under pain of detention, even the class troublemaker sang in harmony and loved it. Class was over, and this young man who loved to disturb every lesson, was asking if he could stay and sing with the next class. I think music is essential for everyone...

    Music Is A Look Into The Soul..

    I believe it! Without music words would fail. There are so many emotions and feelings music gives you that words can't, honestly some songs and lyrics I don't even think a touch could make you feel the feeling stronger..I love music:)

    Lost In The Blues

    I really don't know how any one can say that music, especially the blues, does not reach deep inside them and awaken feelings that would normally be sleeping or sheltered from their reality. For me at least, the blues seems to reach a place that no other music can find. As Albert...

    Music- real, arranged, produced or played- is about as important to me as breathing.   Throughout my life, the only constant I can rely on is music, in it's myriad forms and styles, volumes and trends... people come and go, situations arise and fall away- but a good song...

    As we were driving to the gym this morning, listening to a bluegrass band on CD, they did their obligatory 4 part gospel song. Think we both got a little teary, as it was so beautiful.  A couple of my favorites are "Hush" by the Nashville Bluegrass Band, and "Slyvie" by the...
